We’ve seen athletes wear some creative, unusual cleats over the years, but have you ever seen anything like these bad boys? Rick Flair, as you might expect, very much approved of the fashion choice by the Atlanta Falcons duo.

If you’re an NFL an athlete, the bar for the shoe game has just been raised. Odell Beckham Jr.‘s holiday shoes in 2015 were rather clever, but it’s going to be tough to top what Jones and Sanu came up with.
It’s times like these where the league misses a guy like Chad Johnson or Randy Moss who would have seemingly welcomed this kind of creative challenge.
Let’s just hope the “No Fun League” doesn’t issue any fines for a really creative shoe idea.
