NFL threatened to eject Marshawn Lynch if he wears $1K gold cleats
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch’s foot gear might prevent him from playing in the NFC championship game.
Lynch, who was planning on wearing $1,000 gold cleats, was told that he wouldn’t be allowed to play if he wore them, FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer reports. Glazer checked in with a league official, who confirmed the news.
Lynch attempted to push back on the decision and the team is still unsure if the star running back will comply.
The cleats, which were made by shoe-customizing savant Solesbysir, feature a 24K gold paint along with a chrome finish on the bottom.
Lynch planned on wearing the cleats if the Seahawks made the Super Bowl, but once he saw the finished product, he wanted to play with them during Sunday’s game, according to a TMZ report.
I cannot wait to see @beastmode Marshawn Lynch rocking these this weekend. I think one of his notorious crazy runs would just look that much "Gold-er" What do my 12th man fans think? #SolesBySir #customCleats #1of1 #gold #ALLGOLD #Seattle #Seahawks #12man #12thman FEEL FREE TO TAG ALL YOUR SEAHAWKS FANS #thankful #blessed #stillCantBelieveIMakeCleatikeThese
