Seven-time Super Bowl champion and current quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tom Brady has released a custom pair of cleats, in support of the Navy SEAL Foundation, the TB12 Foundation and the Players Coalition.
The blue and white cleats feature two Navy SEAL fighter pilots holding the American flag, and on the side of each arch are swoops of red, white and blue. The toes are emblazoned with “Navy SEAL Foundation,” “Players Coalition,” and “TB12 Foundation,” and the top features Brady’s last name.
Brady wore the cleats during a recent match-up between the Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons, which Tampa Bay won 30-17.
A pledge for the greater good @nfl My Cause My Cleats.

The one-of-a-kind cleats are being auctioned off by the NFL as part of the organization’s My Cause My Cleats campaign, a “league-wide initiative that offers teams the opportunity to promote charitable causes that are important to them through creative cleat designs.”
More than 50 players and staff from the Buccaneers are participating in this year’s campaign, supporting nearly 50 different charities. Among those taking part include offensive tackle Tristan Wirfs, who worked with a single-parent family at Metropolitan Ministries to design his cleats, and linebacker Lavonte David, who is supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters, for which he serves as a national ambassador.
Those also involved include center Ryan Jensen, wide receiver Chris Godwin and defensive tackle Vita Vea, among others.
This is the sixth consecutive season the NFL is “raising awareness for non-profit organizations and causes on the field through the campaign, with more than 1,000 players throughout the league annually participating.”
The auction began on December 3, 2021 and is expected to close on January 3 of next year. Those wishing to place a bid must do so in $50.00 increments.
