Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown has been one of the NFL’s most electrifying playmakers. With his otherworldly speed and route running, Brown has amassed at least 1,200 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns every season since 2013. His ability to break down secondaries is second to none as he frequently finds himself beating defenders 1 v 1 and even more frequently 2 v 1. The nine year veteran’s physical stature falls short compared to his contemporaries like Julio Jones or AJ Green, but Browns next level commitment to his craft places him in the right places during games. Antonio’s mental game is next level, he’s on the record saying this about NFL defenses, “It’s all a chess game… If you watch enough film and understand what the defense or defender is doing or is going to do, you can get them. It’s simple when you see it over and over.” This kind of mental chess match has resulted in 6 Pro-Bowl selections and 4 First-team All-Pro honors. If wide receivers were actually considered for league MVP then I’m sure Brown would have won one by now.
Over the years Antonio has customized his Nike kicks in inventive ways (just like his touchdown celebrations). For today’s birthday celebration lets take a look back at some of his best custom cleats, enjoy! Happy 29th born day, Antonio!
