“It’s a special cleat for a couple reasons. I mean opening day is on 9/11,” said Troy Cole, Kickasso’s owner. “And Odell wanted to pay tribute to the heroes of 9/11, and not toward the tragedy aspect, with the falling building and the heroes all around kind of helping and saving people. That is why it’s kind of special and going to be pretty cool.”
The Giants’ coaches and staff also plan to wear special 9/11 pins to honor the fallen and as a reminder of the tragedy that cost thousands of lives. Some players may be wearing special 9/11 gloves.

You will see both Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz wearing different cleats this Sunday, September 11th as the Giants take on the Dallas Cowboys. Marking the 15th Anniversary since 9/11, one pair will be worn for pre-game and the other in-game.
