Have you ever watched a football game on TV or scrolled through Twitter, seen your favorite athlete rocking a one-of-a-kind pair of kicks and thought — I. Must. Have. Those. Shoes?
You’re not alone. The trend of athletes wearing customized spikes isn’t brand new, but it is exploding and one Miami-based artist — Marcus Rivero — is at the center of the boom, customizing shoes for well over 300 current NFL stars.
Here’s a look at some of Rivero’s best work via his Instagram account:
Was able to work on these for a long time bud @jonjayu , his game worn cleats for his charity event tonight “The Jon Jay FMS celebrity bowling Challenge” Be sure to come by and bid on these Miami inspired cleats #SolesBySir #customCleats #1of1 #gameworn #jonJay #Hurricanes #Miami #Splitsville #greatCause
I cannot wait to see @beastmode Marshawn Lynch rocking these this weekend. I think one of his notorious crazy runs would just look that much “Gold-er” What do my 12th man fans think? #SolesBySir #customCleats #1of1 #gold #ALLGOLD #Seattle #Seahawks #12man #12thman FEEL FREE TO TAG ALL YOUR SEAHAWKS FANS #thankful #blessed #stillCantBelieveIMakeCleatikeThese
It’s one thing to say it’s “For The Family”, it’s another thing to SHOW it. @rashadjohnson26 of the @azcardinals is keeping his 7 family members up front.,.,. Of his customs. Thanks for the chance to be a part of these. #SolesBySir #1of1 #customCleats #customVapors #arizona #cardinals #ftf #FamilyFirst

Thank again CJ #SolesBySir #customcleats #customhuaraches #1of1 #Jets #NewYork #football #CJ21 #customs TAG YOUR FAVORITE JETS PLAYER
I told my mom I wouldn’t stop until I made it….. That story’s yet to be completed. “Once upon a Saturday” I am trying to change the cleat game forever. Pair by pair I’m hoping to get people to see that work “boots” don’t have to be boring. Show your true colors, walk with pride, and have the world take notice. #SolesBySir #customCleats
