Avery Williamson’s Patriotic Home-Opener Cleats are a Must See

Avery Williamson

Former Wildcat star linebacker Avery Williamson has a new pair of cleats for his home-opening game of this NFL season and they are probably the coolest cleats I’ve ever seen in any sport. Williamson and the Tennessee Titans take on the Minnesota Vikings on September 11th, the 15th anniversary of one of the single most tragic days in American history.

True Blue Customs out of Lexington teamed up with Williamson to make a tribute to the victims of 9/11, a really incredible and patriotic gesture. True Blue Customs (@truebluecustoms) has posted multiple Instagram pictures of the cleats. Go check them out because they really are awesome looking.

Williamson is entering his third season for the Titans, racking up over 100 tackles last season to go along with 3.5 sacks and one interception.  This is the type of thing you love to see out of professional athletes. They have a platform to make a statement, and a patriotic statement is about as great as it gets. Even better to see this from a former Wildcat, giving some solid publicity to the UK program.
