Marshawn Lynch is wearing his banned gold cleats in Super Bowl warmups

New, comments

Remember the gold cleats that the NFL told Marshawn Lynch he couldn't wear in the NFC Championship? He's got them on before the Super Bowl.

The NFL had threatened to eject Lynch from the NFC Championship for wearing the cleats, and eventually told him he wouldn't be allowed to play until he put on other cleats. He complied and wore regular cleats for that game.

We have to imagine Lynch will swap out the cleats before the game — we doubt Lynch would risk his ability to play in the Super Bowl over shoe choice.
