Robert Griffin III shows off new gold and burgundy cleats
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has launched a new signature cleat on Wednesday. The new cleats are gold and burgundy, the colors of the Washington Redskins and the cleats are dedicated to the D.C, fans who support the team.
The cleats were launched with a video:

And a transcript in case your sound is off.
“One of the things I’ve always said in my life is you always take pride in where you’re from and where you’re at, so, this shoe right here is me taking pride in the city that I play in,” Griffin says in the video. “The DMV is really where we play, but in D.C., these are the colors of our team. I feel like the city of D.C. itself is a city of business, but it’s also a city of fun. So, when you see the burgundy in the middle, that’s the business part. But then the outside? That’s all fun. So this shoe is to you guys. I appreciate everything. I appreciate you taking me in, making me one of your own, and treating me the way you do.”
They’re rather nice looking cleats, I must say. Much better than the last pair Griffin launched a few months ago.
