News — Angelus Paint

Best of #MyCauseMyCleats

For most of the year, the NFL prohibits its players from wearing custom cleats. However, for the league's My Cause, My Cleats program, players are allowed to wear customs cleats in order to show support for a cause that they feel passionate about. From weeks 13-15 of the season, players can play in pre-approved cleats sponsoring their charity of choice, and some of our sponsored artists at Angelus have been able to feature their designs on screens across the country. Here are a couple of the best My Cause, My Cleats designs from a few of our artists.
TJ Carrie Foundation Cleats

These cleats designed by sponsored artist @solesbysir were custom made for Browns cornerback TJ Carrie in support of the TJ Carrie Foundation. According to its website, the TJ Carrie Foundation was founded "to help our youth discover their greatness through health, education, and community programs and events." You can put together a similar design with our 12 Color Assortment Kit.
Reggie Gilbert Custom Cleats
Sponsored artist @astrotorfcustoms put together these clean customs to help Packers linebacker Reggie Gilbert show support for his Auntie who's fighting against Lupus. If you like this colorway, you can recreate a similar one using our purple, white, and light green paint.
