Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III wore special edition camo cleats for his team’s Thursday night game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Throughout November, the NFL will honor the United States’ military men and women. As for RGIII, he was happy to pay his personal respects to the members of our armed forces.
Sarah Kogod of the DC Sports Bog brings us adidas’ description of the new cleats.
The special Veterans Day colorway of RGIII’s signature adidas cleat celebrates all who served and currently serve in the military. The cleat exterior and stripes are green and gold, signifying the formal dress greens worn by the US Army. The modern digital Camouflage is inspired by the early 1990’s green pattern worn by Griffin III’s parents and the bright pop color featured on the cleat interior, sock liner and laces mirrors the poppy flower that serves as a Veteran’s Day remembrance. The cleat’s heel tab is emblazoned with Griffin III’s signature phrase “Know Your Why.”

To commemorate Veteran’s Day on November 11, adidas will release a limited number of special Veteran’s Day gift boxes, featuring a signed pair of the RGIII cleats in the special colorway with a matching flat brim hat, graphic tee shirt and Team Speed socks. With 100 percent of the profits being donated to ORHF, each gift box will be sold for $1,111 on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtags #BUY #TheRGIII together via Chirpify.
