Eagles and Patriots Custom Painted Football Cleats of Super Bowl 52

You can go ahead and remove the term “trend” when talking about custom painted football cleats in the NFL. For Super Bowl 52 at least 14 players were wearing a pair of cleats painted by a sneaker customizer. Painted cleats made specifically for the biggest game of the players’ careers were split with 9 for the Philadelphia Eagles and 5 for the New England Patriots.

For Super Bowl 51 we counted only 5 pairs. As the My Cause, My Cleats initiative hopefully continues next season we can only expect more and more players to be open to wearing custom painted football cleats week in and week out. Especially if they are lucky enough to make it to the biggest game of the season.
