The New England Patriots are set to face off with the team who they faced in last year’s Super Bowl. We all know how that game went down, and most Atlanta Falcons fans still have absolutely zero interest in talking about it.
With the game lingering, and those nasty “28-3” thoughts going through the heads of many, Nike decided to add a little more fun and drama ahead of the game. The popular brand created a custom Air Force 1 shoe using game-used footballs.

They are pretty awesome, and an unfortunate subtle shot at the Falcons once again, who may not get over that Super Bowl loss for a very, very long time.
Regardless, Patriots fans are still loving every minute of it, but unfortunately, almost every Patriots fan won’t have the opportunity to land a pair of those custom shoes. As Rovell points out, the only pair will be auctioned off by the Patriots themselves.
