USA Today: Adidas sent NC State and Nebraska Custom SolesbySir

Customizing football cleats became a trend in the NFL during the 2014-15 season. Players from all over the league took the field each and every Sunday in a pair of air brushed or graphic painted cleats that were one-of-ones.
The trend became widely popular among the players in the league this season that Nike had to put a stop to the customization of cleats and threaten its athletes with losing their endorsement deals. Not many players were happy with this, but took their chances on the football field after Nike’s threats. Soles By Sir, responsible for most of the custom cleats seen on the field this season, became the go to person for the custom jobs around the league. The Miami shoe customizer gained lots of publicity from the NFL and its players for his bizarre twist on football silhouettes and can be credited for brining the flashy footwear to the NFL.
With so many players rocking his cleats on football Sundays, we take a look back at his 12 best cleats designed during the 2014-15 NFL season.

  • Started as fun. Soon turned hobby. Quickly became a way of life. Now little by little changing the way the game is seen. 
THANK YOU to the @nfl for embracing this. It's been over 4 seasons I have been customizing cleats for guys league wide and always wished a day like this would come. And it finally has. So to all my past and current 1of1 cleat rockers, let's get it, and to all the ones who were on the fence and worried about getting fined, let's get started.

  • One of the pairs I did at the @reebokclassics event yesterday.

Want a pair? Come out this Friday to Dolphin Mall from 12-8 pm. Look for the Reebok Activation, and buy your pair of all white Classics and get it customized for free by yours truly. Yes free, just make sure to buy your @reebok kicks that day at the mall and show your receipt and I will hook you up from 12-8 pm. 
See you there.
