As part of the NFL's My Cause My Cleats program, members of the Minnesota Vikings will wear custom cleats and shoes for a game this season to bring awareness to a cause they support.

This week, the Minnesota Vikings revealed the custom designs for the cleats and shoes that players and other members of the organization will wear during a game this season as part of the NFL's annual My Cause My Cleats program.
