For the first time ever, the NFL has given its players permission to wear special footwear during regular season games. This week, players across the league are participating in a campaign called, My Cleats My Cause.
Over 500 NFL players have designed customized shoes to represent a charity close to their heart.
The shoes will be worn on field during Week 13 games. Many of the shoes and the organization represented will be showcased during the games broadcast. The goal of this event is to raise money and awareness for several charities. The shoes will be auctioned off afterward to raise money for each cause.
Josh Ferguson, running back for the Indianapolis Colts, will be representing the American Heart Association during his game on Monday night. Other players representing the AHA include:
- Brandon Cook, New Orleans Saints wide receiver (shoes pictured above)
- Stephon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver
- Braxton Hicks, Houston Texans wide receiver
- Darren Bates, Oakland Raiders linebacker
- Jalen Richard, Oakland Raiders running back
- Marcell Dareus, Buffalo Bills nose tackle
- Nickell Robey-Coleman, Buffalo Bills cornerback
