NFL PLAYERS MAKE FESTIVE FASHION STATEMENTS FOR WEEK 15
With the holiday season in full swing, NFL players across the league have turned to seasonal-themed sartorial statements both on and off-the-field.
Before the New York Giants and Carolina Panthers battled it out on the gridiron, Odell Beckham Jr. and Cam Newton were competing on the festive footwear front. Beckham Jr.’s cleats were a creative collaboration between the Giants wide receiver, Nike, and Joseph Skiba. A red and green colorway was decorated with presents and bows, special laces, blinking lights, and Christmas music.
