The most unlikeliest of sneaker icons may just be sitting in the New England Patriots owner's box.

From Tom Brady's Uggs to Bill Belichick's hoodie, the Patriots have been known to make some pretty eyebrow raising fashion statements before. Now you can add the team's owner to the list of fashion influencers up in Foxboro. That's because Robert Kraft has been stomping around in his Air Force 1s all season long. Come gameday, you can find Mr. Kraft wearing his suit and tie with an accompanying pair of Nike Lunar Force 1s. The story goes that Kraft's sneaker aficionado origins began three years ago when he talked to the Pats' Nike contacts about designing something a bit more comfortable than business shoes. The rest, as they say is history. From the Pro Football Hall of Fame to the White House, Kraft has been seen stunting in his signature sneakers.

The sneakers have become such a hit with fans, that Nike is set to release Kraft's Patriot's Lunar Force 1s to the public. The navy blue-based Lunar Force 1s feature a gray Nike Swoosh and a Patriots logo on the tongue. Retailing at $150, a portion of the sales will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Boston.

Check out a pair of Kraft's Nike Lunar Force 1 "Patriot's" below and pick up a pair over at Nike for $150.
