On Saturday and Sunday, a pair of Jordan Brand athletes -- Michael Crabtree and Earl Thomas, respectively -- will stand out in a shiny way with their cleats.

Crabtree, the 49ers wideout, and Thomas, the Seahawks safety, are sporting customized retro Air Jordan VI cleats.

Crabtree's cleats have a "solid metallic gold with gym red cleats on the bottom" and white/black tops with a No. 15 on the back.

When the Seahawks play the Saints Saturday, Thomas will be sporting a more mid-size cleat, which you can see from the side angle:

Crabtree's cleats, on the other hand, are lower cut than the traditional football cleats.

Both cleats, which you can check out over the weekend games, will be available for sale by Nike at some point this summer.
