Ray Lewis to wear gold cleats in Super Bowl XLVII


The mantra goes: Look good, play good. In the case of Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who is playing the last game of his NFL career, Super Bowl XLVII is time to shine.

Under Armour has created for Lewis a custom pair of bright gold cleats with purple trim made specifically to commemorate his career, reported. The words "Psalms 91" are printed near the toe. That's the Bible verse Lewis wore on his T-shirt under his pads during last month's wild-card win over the Indianapolis Colts. His stats and awards are listed on the insole along with Lewis' silhouette in the midst of his pregame dance. His number and initials are printed on the tongue.

We've seen the gold kicks before. Olympic gold medalist sprinter Michael Johnson famously wore his during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
