Nike has turned two of the Patriots' Super Bowl LI game balls into sneakers – and they look awesome

New, comments

The pair will be auctioned off for a good cause.

On Sunday, the New England Patriots will host the Atlanta Falcons for a rematch of Super Bowl LI. To honor the game and New England's 34-28 victory, Nike and Patriots honor Robert Kraft have teamed up to create a special pair of sneakers – one that was made from two footballs used during the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

The shoes feature the Patriots' logo as well as the game details on the heel, while the Super Bowl LI logo is displayed on the forefoot. Furthermore, the laces have been made from the two game ball's actual laces. The one-of-a-kind pair will be on display in The Hall at Patriot Place leading up to Sunday night's game between the Patriots and Falcons, on October 20, 21 and 22.

On a not yet released date after the Super Bowl rematch, the pair, which has been crafted at Nike's headquarters in Oregon, will be auctioned off by the Patriots. The proceeds from the auction will go to the benefits of Boston's Boys and Girls Clubs.
