This Sunday, the top linebacker of this generation will call it quits one way or the other following Super Bowl XLVII. After 17 seasons as the heart and soul of the Baltimore Ravens, Ray Lewis has announced his retirement from the NFL. To commemorate this occasion and a possible second championship ring for the 13-time Pro Bowler, Under Armour has created a special golden commemorative Renegade cleat for him to wear in the game.
The cleats feature an all-over tonal Maryland flag print and “RL52” across the tongue. Medial toe reads ‘Psalms 91,’ honoring the t-shirt worn by Ray under his pads during his final home game as a Raven. Custom insoles acknowledge Ray’s career accomplishments, his regular season numbers appearing on the left and postseason on the right.
A closer look at Ray’s Super Bowl Renegades below. Look for these Under Armour football cleats to release as part of the brand’s Fall/Winter 2013 lineup.
