LOOK: Cam Newton wears colorful cleats before Panthers game
Cam Newton wore some colorful cleats before the Panthers-49ers game. Per usual.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- We here at EOF have a fond habit of chronicling Cam Newton's warmup cleats. On Sunday before the Divisional Round matchup against the 49ers, Newton went old school, sporting his Superman cleats while preparing to take on San Francisco.

These things are bright. From up high in the press box at Bank of America Stadium, you could the purple coming off the cleats. I actually thought they might be Transformer-style cleats based on the colorways.
And I'm not sure I can actually confirm they're Superman cleats -- the Panthers mention SuperCam but I didn't actually see a logo. Until this second, amazing view emerged:
Newton doesn't actually wear them on the field, of course. He goes back into the tunnel and changes before coming back out to play. Before this matchup, he stopped and chatted with Colin Kaepernick (the two exchanged a big hug) and Vernon Davis. Superman's got a soft side apparently.
