Cam Newton's custom Under Armour Curry 2s stole the show when he wore them earlier this week during Super Bowl 50 media day, and now we know more about how they came to be. ESPN's Darren Rovell interviewed Devlin Braswell, aka FBCC Bay Area, and uncovered the details about the custom sneakers, including how much it costs to execute the design.

According to the story, Braswell got hit up by Newton's camp for the request last month, and began brainstorming a way to make the perfect custom sneakers. After researching Newton's interests, he ordered the materials, which cost more than double of what the Curry 2 retails for. "After ordering the materials, which Braswell said cost $300, the shoe took about eight hours to make from start to finish," reports ESPN. This is one of the best custom sneakers we've seen in a long time, so it looks like the material costs and time put in was well worth it.
