The opening NFL Sunday will be played on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, and the NFL has pretty big plans for honoring the lives of those lost in the tragic terrorist attacks in 2001.
A few specific New York players will be paying tribute too.
Giants stars Odell Beckham and Victor Cruz will both wear cleats in honor of the first responders who tragically lost their lives on that faithful day.
The two wide receivers will wear two pairs of spikes, all hand-painted by shoe artists ‘Kickasso’.
“It’s a special cleat for a couple reasons. I mean opening day is on 9/11,” Troy Cole aka “Kickasso” said. “Odell wanted to pay tribute to the heroes of 9/11, and not toward the tragedy aspect, with the falling building and the heroes all around kind of helping and saving people. That is why it’s kind of special and going to be pretty cool.”
