Taking the field for pregame warmups ahead of the Browns' 1 p.m. kickoff with the Eagles, Landry donned a pair of custom Nike cleats that paid homage to Philadelphia 76ers legend Allen Iverson. The cleats, created by custom footwear designer Mache, depict the Hall of Fame guard during his playing days with the Sixers, with one side showing Iverson in his white uniform and the other in his black jersey.

"With the Browns playing Philly today @God_Son80 wanted to pay tribute to one of the greatest who ever did it in the City of Brotherly Love, the Answer @alleniverson," Mache wrote on Twitter on Sunday morning as she showed off his creation.

Now in his third season with the Browns, Landry has shown some of the same toughness that "The Answer" became known for over the course of his NBA career. Having already undergone hip surgery in the offseason, the 5-time Pro Bowl wide receiver suffered a cracked rib in Cleveland's win over the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 11, but has yet to miss a game this season -- or in his career -- due to injury.

In nine games this season, Landry has tallied 36 receptions for 448 yards. For all the latest from the Browns' Week 11 matchup at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday, follow our live blog.
