This week the NFL kicks off their “My Cause, My Cleats” celebration. This takes place in Week 13 and Week 14 of the season. According to official NFL site, this is an opportunity for player to “wear their hearts on their feet.” Participating players pick a cause important to them. That cause is then incorporated into a design on a pair of custom cleats. On Saturday, the New England Patriots gave a preview of some of their player’s cleats.
