Nike, Patriots design shoe out of game balls from Super Bowl LI

Nike, Patriots design shoe out of game balls from Super Bowl LI”

If you've ever wondered what a football might look like if it's converted into a shoe, you can wonder no more.

To honor the New England Patriots' victory in Super Bowl 51 - the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history - Nike took two SB51 game-used balls and turned them into a one-of-a-kind Nike Air Force 1 Low. The tongue is made from the laces of the game balls, and the shoes also feature the original markings from the balls displayed throughout the heel, toe box and tongue.

Nike announced on Wednesday that the company has produced a special edition sneaker that was manufactured using footballs from Super Bowl LI.

At least that's what the Patriots chose to do with two of their game-used footballs from Super Bowl LI.

The craziest thing about the shoe might be the fact that its laces aren't even actual shoelaces: They're the laces that were on the Super Bowl LI footballs.

Nike and New England timed the unveil perfectly to troll Atlanta.

If Robert Kraft is looking to acquire another pair of Air Force 1's, the Patriots owner doesn't need to look far and wide. Following that, the shoe will be auctioned off at a later date to benefit Boston's Boys & Girls Club.
