The NFL’s “My Cause, My Cleats” initiative went so well in 2016 the league is doing it again this week and, wow, with one round now under their belts, the players have SERIOUSLY upped their game this year. Not only does it seem like pretty much EVERY player will be wearing some custom cleats for a cause, from what we’ve seen so far the designs are more incredible than ever.
Heck, this year even some of the coaches like Ron Rivera, Bill Belichick (yes, Bill Belichick), and Pete Carroll will be getting in on the custom kicks for a cause action.
Dare I say, Belichick are Carroll’s shoes are actually… gulp… dope?
As The MMQB reported back in August…
Nearly 500 players supported myriad causes during the “My Cleats, My Cause” campaign last year, from battling diseases and illnesses to supporting clean water and local Boys and Girls Clubs. A league source indicated that no fewer than 1,300 players have expressed interest in the campaign this season.
From the number of custom cleats I have seen posted on social media, I can totally believe that more than 1,300 players are participating in the initiative this season.
Here is a VERY SMALL sampling of some of the custom cleats you’ll be seeing players rocking in week 13. (Be sure to swipe on some of these posts as they contain multiple pics and cleats.)
