Kill the Field: The Flyest Cleats Out Now

Superbowl XLVIII is this Sunday; bets are being made, wings are getting cooked, and the gridiron is about to get gritty. While everybody is picking sides between the Broncos and Seahawks, comparing stats, and salivating over a Sherman-intercepts-Mannng game-changing moment, we’d like to point out that there’s more to football than the game. The Times may have picked up on the NBA’s sneaker obsession, but those digging in at the line are rocking a fly set of joints, too. As the weather improves (fingers triple crossed), and you start to dream of Spring, think about the impression your cleats can leave. That Dougie TD celebration you’ve been working on all Winter is a SportsCenter moment with a pair of these head turning, safety burning cleats. Christian Louboutin wasn’t the first to put spikes on kicks, ya know.

First on our list are these special edition cleats by Adidas for Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. The cleat sports a grey camouflage and a red tongue which are meant to pay homage our nation’s troops, hence why they dropped on Veterans Day last year.

We got to take it back to the classics with the OG’s of football cleats the  “Nike Shark.” These 1988 throwbacks were made for the turf and grass but still features a stylish design. The Shark’s ain’t ever going out of style, lace up a fresh pair and take a step closer to winning.

Now you know it was only a matter of time until a pair of Air J’s appeared on this list. The  Air Jordan VI is already a classic in its own right. The Air Jordan 6 PE cleats just scream out victory with a black and white color way and golden spikes on the bottom of the shoe.

The Adidas ‘Mayhem Hi D Pro’ is both affordable and stylish. I actually want to take the spikes off and just rock them for show. Who’s working on the convertible cleat/sneaker? I need that scoop.

These bad boys right here are the “UA Cam Highlight MC” football cleats by Under Armour. The black and silver kicks were made for Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. Hopefully next year these kicks might actually take him to the Super Bowl. That’s some Superman worthy footwear.

Marshawn Lynch doesn’t play games when it comes to his Skittles. So much to the point that the Nike team created a special edition cleat for the running back, celebrating his favorite candy. Shoe game on Beast mode 24/7.

Last but damn sure not least, are the Air Jordan XII cleats. What makes me really mad is that there more color options in cleats than the original shoe. These should be released just for us at Mass Appeal. Throw a little emblem on there, get the flag football squad together and it’s over. That suede is so sexy, its not fair!
