If you watched Tony Romo stink up the joint in Dallas earlier today, you may have noticed something interesting about Michael Crabtree's cleats.
While the Jordan Brand sent over a low-top in 49ers red and gold, Crabtree opted for this flaked custom in Dallas blue. The reason? Crabtree is a Dallas native, and always dreamed of suiting up for the Cowboys. It didn't quite work out that way, so he showed a little love to Big D with his cleats today.
The custom cleats were the work of Recon, who handles exclusives for Nike/Jordan athletes in the NBA, MLB and NFL.
Take a closer look at Crabtree's Dallas cleats, as well as a few game shots below.
UPDATE: 9/13/14: In an expected move, Crabtree has been fined $5,512 by the NFL for wearing the non-team color cleats (a violation of the league's dress code). According to reports, Crabtree will be auctioning off the cleats in support of his Crab 5 Foundation.
