Athletes and fans aren’t the only one excited about the return of football season—brands, too, have been looking forward to this perfect opportunity to unleash their latest and greatest on-field performance gear. Among them is familiar heavyweight Under Armour.

With the action in full swing, UA hooked up their biggest NFL endorser, Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, with his first signature cleats, the UA Cam Highlights. Featuring the design of the original UA Highlight, Newton’s version comes with an added boost of speed to compliment his electric style of play. The ultra high-cut cleats feature UA’s lightweight CompFit construction for a snug and supportive fit.

While the Panthers’ play-caller gets to rock these all season, they won’t hit the retail shelves until Spring 2013. Lucky for you, Sneaker Report will have a review on the boots shortly. Stay tuned.
