FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Nike and Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind shoe that fans will surely get a kick out of in advance of the team's Super Bowl LI rematch with the Atlanta Falcons on NBC's "Sunday Night Football" at Gillette Stadium.
Nike's footwear development team took materials from the Patriots' Super Bowl LI game balls and constructed a one-of-a-kind shoe that uniquely pays homage to the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history. The tongue of the shoe is made from the laces of the game balls, and the shoe also features the original markings from the balls displayed throughout the heel, toe box and tongue. The entire shoe was made at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon.
The morning of the Patriots' prime time season opener in September, Kraft greeted fans at the Patriots ProShop in celebration of the launch of the fourth Nike RKK Air Force 1 Flyknit sneaker, which also commemorated Super Bowl LI.
