3 reasons why the San Francisco 49ers upset the Los Angeles Rams
Deebo Samuel was able to grab some custom cleats prior to the NFC Championship Game and no one will confuse them with anyone else’s shoes.
As the San Francisco 49ers get ready to face the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game, Deebo Samuel shows off some pretty cool custom shoes. The 26-year-old San Francisco receiver will almost certainly have the best cleats out of everyone on the field for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.
Yes. It’s very clearly Samuel’s cleats.
There is absolutely no chance that anyone will think that these shoes belong to anyone else. The only possible exception here would be someone who thinks the shoes actually belong to Tommy Lister Jr. All things considered, that would be a pretty forgivable mistake.
First of all, the artwork is pretty cool. Second, the shoes show the guy after whom Samuel was nicknamed.
San Francisco 49ers vs. Los Angeles Rams: Deebo Samuel breaks out custom braces for the NFC Championship Game
Samuel got his famous nickname from his father, who chose the name after a character from Friday and Next Friday. According to the 49ers, Samuel’s father chose the nickname for his son when a young Samuel (who was a small child at the time) took things from other people.
So Samuel’s father felt that the name Deebo, after the character portrayed by Lister, was an appropriate choice. And now Samuel breaks out some custom cleats and pays homage to the character he shares name with.
The 49ers and Rams meet Sunday at 5:30 p.m.
