We’ve seen a number of high quality customized cleats during the 2016 season. Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon’s set may be the best yet. He wore this pair for warmups before Minnesota’s clash with the Eagles.

The Vikings seem to be particularly attached to the fallen gorilla. They gave him a shout out in one of their pregame huddles.
It’s a shame that the NFL does not let these players wear their awesome shoes during games, but, for one week only, they will be able to do so. The league will allow players to wear alternate cleats during Week 13, and over 400 players have signed up.
