Not just any player would get the honor of wearing exclusive Nike Air Jordan VII cleats to wear in the Super Bowl. Then again, Seattle Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is not just any player. 

The 25-year-old four-time All-Pro defensive back may be the best safety in the league, and his footwear in the big game will reflect it.

What really stood out to Nike with regard to earning the Jordan honor was that Thomas is competing not for a first ring but his second...in a row:

A true hallmark of sports greatness is winning multiple championships. In parallel with Jordan’s championship path while wearing the iconic silhouette, Earl Thomas — one of the best defensive players in the league — will play in a player exclusive Air Jordan VII cleat as he aims for one of the most coveted experiences in sport: the repeat win. 

Featuring an action green and navy upper, the Air Jordan VII cleat is certain to shine under the bright lights. A chrome plate nods to the ultimate prize, the championship trophy, and an updated Air Jordan VII graphic on the tongue and heel pays homage to the brand’s award-winning history.
