People get very creative with wedding proposals. Some train pets to surprise their partners while others have even gone so far as to propose on sky-diving trips, but San Jose Sharks winger Joel Ward may have done something no one else has tried before.
He proposed with a pair of shoes. Customised Air Jordans to be exact.
The 37-year-old NHL veteran had a Brooklyn-based shoe design company called Ecentrik Artistry design him a custom pair of Jordans with "Will You" on one shoe and "Marry Me?" on the other.
This is certainly a first, but the good thing is it is also apparently effective since Ward's girlfriend, Pedrosa, said "yes."
A while back, @JRandalWard42 requested a pair of custom Jordans for his girlfriend as a marriage proposal. Happy to announce she said yes! Congratulations to the happy couple! pic.twitter.com/mmB1CoHYOF-- Ecentrik Artistry (@ecentrikart) December 24, 2017
Ward may not yet have a Stanley Cup ring, but he is more than happy to give a diamond to his lady.
