White Football Cleats – the Psychology of Speed

For many decades of football history, players’ cleats were uniformly dark brown or black. It wasn’t until the late 1960s and early ‘70s that a handful of “rebels” defied that tradition and stepped out in white football cleats. Some said their reasoning was to have their shoes match the external athletic tape they employed for ankle support or to complement their white uniforms. But it soon became clear that many showboaters of the day wore white football cleats to psych out their opponents with an impression of blinding speed and to add an extra element of razzle-dazzle to their touchdown celebrations.
