* Cam Newton’s custom cleats from last season are now available in limited quantities
* Just in time for football season
* If loud cleats aren’t your thing, we’ve selected a few subdued models as well
Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton may be best known for his accomplishments on the football field, but his outgoing personality, pointed opinions, and sartorial style off the field are just as notable.
After signing with Under Armor in 2011, Newton and Under Armour have collaborated on a number of wacky football cleats over the years, but it wasn’t until last season when things got a bit wild. For instance, during pre-game warmups in Minnesota, Newton sported a pair of custom Paisley-themed cleats in honor of Prince. And before a game against New Orleans, Newton donned a pair of Big Easy inspired black and white striped cleats with gold flour-de-lis-esque embellishments. And a fox tail.
And now you can buy a handful of Newton’s custom cleats for your own football antics. Don’t forget, Thanksgiving is only two months away meaning you’ve just enough time to get ready for that annual turkey day football game.
1. UA Spotlight – Metallic Silver
Made from Under Armor’s innovative seamless constructed upper called SpeedForm, the UA Spotlight in metallic silver is a no frills cleat for the player who just wants to lace up and play.
2. UA Spotlight – Sandstorm
The UA Spotlight Sandstorm offers the same lightweight, stable platform as the Metallic Silver, but in a digital desert camo motif. The medial side features what appears to be an Army inspired skull and a “Never Accept Defeat” mantra.
3. UA Spotlight – California
If you’re okay with a bit of flair and want to rep your home state of California, then these limited edition UA Spotlights are for you.
4. UA Highlight – Stars and Stripes
Show everyone just how patriotic you are with the limited-edition UA Highlight Stars and Stripes. This high-top cleat provides ample support throughout and the 3D molded MPZ tongue forms to your foot for even more protection.
5. UA C1N MC
The C1N MC is Newton’s signature shoe, so if it’s good enough for him, then it’s good for us. It’s light, supportive and has a removable ankle strap in case you need a bit more support.
6. UA C1N MC — Midas Touch
If you have a penchant for rose gold, then the Midas Touch C1N MC is a must. Cam wore these during warmups at Atlanta during Week 16.
7. UA C1N MC — High Society
What’s with the fox tail, you ask? The story goes that Newton read about how Native Americans would wear the animal pelts as headdresses in order to absorb the qualities of said animal. He thought that by wearing a fox tail, he’d be able to get out of sticky situations. Buy these cleats and you be the judge.
8. UA C1N MC — Paisley
Before the Panthers game against Minnesota, these Prince inspired cleats made their debut.
9. UA Highlight MC 2.0 BOA
Not a Cam Newton but an interesting one nonetheless. The MC 2.0 BOA is named after the BOA lacing system that you might have first seen on snowboarding boots. It’s touted as “a precision closure system” that’s built directly into the cleats for a “quick, customizable, and totally consistent” fit.
