Carolina quarterback Cam Newton is truly one of a kind. From his game-day greatness to his post-game fashion, the MVP’s athleticism, leadership, and swagger are unmatched. All of this comes through in his signature cleat: the Under Armour C1N. Engineered for a seamless fit and total support, the cleats are explosive, durable, and flashy: just like Cam.
But Under Armour didn’t just stop there; they wanted to add as much of his unique personality and skills into this cleat collection as possible. That was the inspiration behind the four limited-edition versions that just dropped: ‘Paisley,’ ‘High Society,’ ‘Created Player,’ and ‘Midas Touch.’ Let’s break them all down.
The main inspiration behind the ‘Paisley’ cleat came from one of Cam’s bold outfits during award show season, but when he unveiled them before an away game in Minnesota, they also became an ideal tribute to the Gopher State’s own legendary musician, Prince.
His fashion is as unique and head-turning as his play, so it makes sense that the ‘High Society’ cleats are all about Cam’s style. The designer pants he’s sported before games inspire the cleat’s upper while the classic fox tail he has rocked postgame make an appearance on the back. And don’t worry; the removable tail is synthetic, not real fur!
Sometimes, Cam is so good, you’d swear he’d entered cheat codes. The controller codes and video disc designs on this cleat are perfect for the player who makes it look like he’s set the difficulty level to ‘Easy.’
With Cam’s ability to turn any play to gold, the ‘Midas Touch’ cleats are fitting. The Metallic Gold and Rose Gold colors on the cleat are the perfect way to symbolize the QB’s first-class skills, speed, and style.
So now that you know about all four special cleats, the question is, which cleat will you choose? Let us know in the comments and make sure to grab your favorite pair soon since these are limited edition and sure to be gone fast!
