It's been a wild ride for Cam Newton's pre-game cleats this year. But on Sunday, before the Niners-Panthers Divisional Round playoff game, things reached a whole new level.
I'm just going to choose to believe this is an homage to the Snake Mountain toy from the Masters of the Universe line. Right, Cam? A little Skeletor shout-out? Because otherwise ... yuck.
UPDATE: Yep, totally thought these were purple. But they're not. Check out the back of the cleats, where things reach another level of "what the hell are you wearing?"
