Another week of NFL action means more triumphant wins, heartbreaking losses and, of course, eye-catching custom footwear.
The most head-turning cleats of Week 7 belonged to New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who acknowledged the team’s London International Series match up against the Los Angeles Rams with not one, but two U.K.-inspired custom cleats.
The first pair of custom cleats worn by the star receiver lifted Burberry’s iconic plaid print. Beckham warmed up in the Burberry-inspired cleats before switching to a pair that met the NFL’s strict uniform restrictions after kickoff.
Beckham outdid himself with the second pair, which paid tribute to two of the U.K.’s most storied music groups; The Rolling Stones and The Who. Although the logo-laden customs might not appeal to everyone, they were one of the most appropriate cleats we’ve seen so far this season. The Giants ended up winning 17-10, and Beckham had 5 receptions for 49 yards.
Around the league, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu also drew attention with a pair of Power Rangers-inspired cleats as a nod to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Sanu wore the custom cleats (pictured below) during warmups for the Falcons’ overtime loss to the San Diego Chargers.
