Not only will the Ducks face the newly revamped Buffaloes under coach Deion Sanders, but Oregon will also sport some new and unique cleats on the field.
Oregon unveiled the new shoes on social media Wednesday, explaining that the Nike cleats are heat activated and color-changing. So, it was only fitting that the video included a chameleon climbing over the cleats and the uniform to emphasize the color-changing aspect.
The cleats start out all black with white detail, before exposing a tie-dye like pattern with yellow and green as the main colors, of course.
The look for Saturday’s game is complete with a green jersey and black pants, along with a matte black helmet.
The No. 10 Ducks will definitely stand out on the field as they face the No. 19 Buffaloes. Both teams enter the game 3–0.
Fans on social media couldn’t believe the cleats that Nike created could include such incredible features. Check out some of the best reactions.
