We all know it’s not a birthday unless you get a pair of customized football cleats from your sponsor. Ok so that rule doesn’t apply to everyone, just NFL studs Robert Griffin III and DeMarco Murray.
Yesterday, February 12 was the joint birthday of both Griffin (23) and Murray (25), so adidas decided to give each player a pair of cake-themed cleats. RGIII received a pair of adidas’ newest cleat, the CrazyQuick, which is slated to hit stores this Spring. Murray got a pair of the popular adizero 5-star 2.0, which, at 6.7 ounces, are the lightest cleat ever built for the gridiron.
It was certainly a nice gesture by adidas. It’s just too bad we’ll probably never get to see the birthday-edition cleats in action.
