Baton Rouge born and a star wideout at LSU, Odell Beckham Jr. paid homage to his roots as his hometown New Orleans Saints visit MetLife Stadium today.

For pregame warmups, Beckham donned a special pair "Nola Boy" Nike Vapor Carbon 2014 Elite cleats by his go-to customizer, Kickasso. The purple, green and gold colors are inspired by the Mardi Gras celebration, and they even come with a festive pair of laces.

Beckham will have to change into a pair of cleats that meet league standards for the game, but he made his statement early.
