    Odell Beckham Jr. (Pre-Game)

    Kickasso and Beckham continue to impress each and every week. This week, Beckham wore a custom cleat that took inspiration from one of the greatest albums to be released in the last 20 years. The cleats used Takashi Murakami's iconic album art from Kanye West's 'Graduation' on the cleats for the Giants' Week 17 finale.

    Miller wore these very Von Miller cleats for his final game of the 2016 NFL season. The Adidas high top cleats feature several photos of Miller's face throughout the cleat. It was a memorable cleat from Miller in what has been a forgettable season for the Denver Broncos.

    Burse wore these black and silver metallic cleats in what may have been the final home game for the San Diego Chargers. The shimmering Under Armour cleats were appropriate for the New Year's Day game but were still not the best cleats of the week...

    Newton broke out a new pair of Under Armour cleats for the Panthers' New Year's Day game against the Buccaneers. The cleats featured numbers counting down with confetti and fireworks. Sadly, Newton's season came to an end and the burden of wearing cool playoff cleats will fall squarely on the shoulders of OBJ.

    Berry wore these team edition Kansas City Chiefs Adidas high top cleats. They look a bit like something that Ronald McDonald would wear for a game, but that is more of a Chiefs issue than an Adidas issue.

    Golden Tate

    For most of the season, Tate has worn some variation of the Jordan IX cleat and that remained true for his game against the Green Bay Packers. Tate rocked an all-black Jordan IX base that featured a Lions blue and white toe that faded to flames.

  • Jarvis Landry 1

    Landry (who is another fan of Kickasso's work) wore this pair of green low top Nike cleats that feature several iconic "Looney Tunes" characters on the shoes. It should be interesting to see if Landry has any special playoff Kickasso collaborations planned.
