Say what you will about his fashion choices on the field and off, but the Carolina Panthers quarterback is definitely not afraid of the statement shoe. In fact, we’d say he’s more willing to embrace a fashion statement than most of the gentleman in the NFL. Yes, we know his signature look isn’t for everyone, but with such a focus on the footwear, we can’t help but rank him high in our book.
All season, sports commentators have been completely enamored of Newton’s shoe picks, from high-end Christian Louboutin sneakers to Giuseppe Zanotti Skull loafers. Neither is too bold on its own, but with the flourishes Newton adds — his pocket squares and pins, bold ties and capri pants — the least you can say is, he certainly aims to pull a full look together from the feet up. (And he sometimes tries an even more unconventional accessory… a raccoon tail.)
The on-field style of the standout quarterback (and much-buzzed-about MVP candidate) gets people talking, too. Newton loves a good custom cleat, and from his sponsor, Under Armour, he gets some cool ones. Among our favorites of the year are the Supercam cleats he debuted at the start of the season.
