It looks like Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is going to stand out from his teammates on the field during Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers.
According to designer Marcus Rivero's Instagram account, Beast Mode will be wearing a pair of customized gold cleats during the game. Adding the green laces is a nice touch to help the running back represent the Seahawks.
The details of the customized cleats are crazy. Per TMZ Sports, Lynch's customized cleats "feature 24K gold flake paint with a RIDICULOUS gold chrome plate at the bottom" and are valued at $1,100.
As the Seahawks try to advance to their second consecutive Super Bowl, Lynch will reportedly be dressed for success.
