A Complete History of the Cleats worn by Superbowl MVPs
We often associate the most popular sneakers in the Air Jordan legacy with MJ’s greatest games in the most important moments. The ‘Last Shot’, for example, is the Air Jordan XIV that he wore when sinking that 18-foot jumper to close out Game 6, the Zoom Kobe 1 is what Kobe rocked during his 81-point bonanza, and the LeBron 9 Elite is what ‘Bron donned during his first NBA Title run. We don’t really pay attention to the on-feet stylings of the NFL, but with the 2012 NFL season came to an official close as Superbowl XLVII ended with Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco taking home MVP honors, we might as well look back at all the cleats worn by every single Superbowl MVP – from Bart Starr’s win in the first ever game to Eli Manning’s triumphant comeback in XLVI. Not only will you find some interesting gems, but the sheer diversity of brands (particularly from the pre-2000s era) sheds some more like on the time when Nike wasn’t the only game in town.
