Marshawn Lynch sports gold cleats for Super Bowl warmups

Sunday February 1st, 2015

Marshawn Lynch let his feet do the talking during warmups for the Super Bowl.

The Seattle Seahawks running back made a fashion statement with these gold cleats about an hour before the game:

Lynch was threatened with a suspension from the NFL when he tried to wear similar all-gold cleats for Seattle's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers. He's also been repeatedly fined by the league for not fulfilling his media obligations throughout the season.

The running back's feet are vital to the Seahawks offense. His 17 regular season touchdowns led the NFL, and his 216 yards in the postseason leads all rushers. He ran 25 times for 157 yards in the win over the Packers. 

Lynch changed his cleats for the game.
