Tomorrow’s Super Bowl XLVII between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens will be Ray Lewis’ last NFL game as a player. To commemorate this grandest of occasions, Under Armour has rolled a collection of special edition cleats for the eventual Hall of Fame linebacker and other members of the Ravens squad.
Lewis will attempt to earn his second Super Bowl ring in a pair of all-gold UA cleats with customized features that pay tribute to his remarkable 17-year career in the NFL. Along with a “RL52″ logo on the Baltimore purple tongue, the cleat’s sockliners are printed with a breakdown of Lewis’ accomplishments, with his regular season statistics on the left insole, and post season stats on the right. The term “Psalms 91″ is printed on the medial side of the cleat, a tribute to his strong religious faith.
In addition to Ray’s cleats, UA has created special edition Nitro Icon Low cleats, which will be worn by teammates Torrey Smith, Ed Reed, and Anquan Boldin. Lewis’ defensive partner in crime, Haloti Ngata, will also celebrate the occasion with a pair of purple UA Renegade cleats made just for the big man.
Tune in tomorrow to see if Lewis and company can outlast Colin Kapernick and the 49ers. Who knows, No. 52 may even earn himself another spot in our list of the cleats worn by every Super Bowl MVP in NFL history.
