When RGIII takes the field for Thursday Night Football, he’ll be wearing camouflage cleats designed to commemorate upcoming Veteran’s Day. A release from Adidas explains the design.
The special Veteran’s Day colorway of RGIII’s signature adidas cleat celebrates all who served and currently serve in the military. The cleat exterior and stripes are green and gold, signifying the formal dress greens worn by the US Army. The modern digital Camouflage is inspired by the early 1990’s green pattern worn by Griffin III’s parents and the bright pop color featured on the cleat interior, sock liner and laces mirrors the poppy flower that serves as a Veteran’s Day remembrance. The cleat’s heel tab is emblazoned with Griffin III’s signature phrase “Know Your Why.”
If you want to rock your own pair, you’ll have to be patient. Adidas says they won’t be available until April 1. Unless you have $1,100 to spend on an early charity release.
To commemorate Veteran’s Day on November 11, adidas will release a limited number of special Veteran’s Day gift boxes, featuring a signed pair of the RGIII cleats in the special colorway with a matching flat brim hat, graphic tee shirt and Team Speed socks. With 100 percent of the profits being donated to ORHF, each gift box will be sold for $1,111 on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtags #BUY #TheRGIII together via Chirpify.
That’s a lot of directions to follow. If you score a pair, let me know.
