The designer tells PEOPLE Kyle Juszczyk has always been her number-one supporter
Kristin Juszczyk is finally creating a game-day look for her husband, 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk.
"I feel like he's paid his dues. He deserves it," the 29-year-old designer tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview announcing her FedEx partnership ahead of the 2024 Super Bowl.
"I've made Kyle something special for the Super Bowl. I think everyone's going to be excited about it," she continues. "We've had this idea for a long time now, and we were just waiting for that big moment. I think we've finally got it. So we're really excited. Fingers crossed. I can't wait for everyone to see it."
For Kyle's game day swagger, Kristin whipped up a killer jacket featuring jerseys from every other 49ers player. Kyle turned it into an epic Instagram moment! He got his teammates to sign their names over their parts of the jersey, making it a real team effort and adding some serious personality to his look!
Since the beginning of her fashion career, Kristin says Kyle has been her number-one supporter. The couple tied the knot in July 2019 after getting engaged two years prior.
"He's just been incredible. I mean, I know this week, month, and year have been equally stressful for him. So he's just the best partner," Kristin says. "I know everyone sees the little glimpses of him supporting me, but that's not even 5% of what makes him the best partner ever."
In January, Kyle, 32, told reporters, including The Athletic, that it’s been a “pure joy” to watch his wife and her design brand blow up online.
After Taylor Swift, Simone Biles, and Brittany Mahomes donned her NFL-inspired outfits this season, the 49ers fullback flooded social media with praise for his wife’s brand. Kyle responded to a handful of posts on X about Kristin’s work — which often includes her reworking t-shirts and jerseys into custom game day looks — crediting her in the comments and making sure she got recognition.
“She’s been grinding for years now and working so hard,” Kyle smiled, standing outside his 49ers team locker in a video shared by reporter David Lombardi. “I’m so happy to see her get her stuff out there, everybody sees it and recognizes it was hers.”

“There’s times I’m waking up 3 or 4 in the morning and she’s not in bed, she’s downstairs working,” Kyle told reporters.
“I’m so proud of her,” the athlete continued. “I think she’s extremely talented, and the things she’s putting out there are one of a kind.”
He added, “I just wanted to make sure she got that credit. At first, the announcers were like, ‘Taylor Swift can get Nike to do anything!’ And I was like, ‘Ahh, come on! We got to let people know this was all Kristin.’ I’m really happy to see her get that credit."
The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers will face off in Super Bowl LVIII, airing on CBS on Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. ET.
