Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie shows off his superhero cleats at Giants training camp

Monday July 28th, 2014

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie joined the New York Giants this offseason, and he brought with him his collection of comic book superhero cleats.

Rodgers-Cromartie has five pairs of the themed cleats, and told he picks which ones to wear based on how he is feeling.

“It depends on the mood of the day,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “Some days I feel like, if we’re playing a lot of man-to-man [coverage], I tend to put on like the faster superheroes because that’s a day I feel like we’re going to have to do a lot of running. It just depends on my mood. So you can tell by what cleats I have on what kind of day it’s going to be.” 

The Pro Bowl defender has pairs featuring The Flash, Superman, Batman, Spiderman and Captain America.
