Marshawn Lynch and his gold cleats

So, looks like Marshawn Lynch has something fun in store for the NFC title game against Green Bay — some gold cleats.

TMZ was the first to report that Lynch will wear the gold cleats and has this report here.

Here’s another from CBSSports.com.

As the TMZ story explains, the shoes “were hand made by shoe-customizing guru Solesbysir and feature 24K gold flake paint with a RIDICULOUS gold chrome plate at the bottom … final value $1,100 bucks” (RIDICULOUS being TMZ’s emphasis — and we’ll gladly leave the sartorial judgments to them).

Lynch could indeed be fined for this — he was fined $5,250 for wearing green shotes against Houston last season.

But having just been fined $100,000 for not talking to the media, Lynch probably doesn’t consider that much of an obstacle at this point.
