The NFL usually frowns on customized footwear, but that will change this Sunday, as hundreds of NFL players will be wearing custom-designed cleats to support charitable foundations and raise awareness of important causes. Puma Rihanna Creepers Pink .When it comes to charity and sacrifice, there are no best or worst designs, no brand loyalties, no My kicks are better than your kicks -- all of these cleats are winners. Still, some are particularly notable, either for their visual impact or for the storylines behind them. Here are a dozen that have caught your friendly uniform columnists eye this week:Von Miller, BroncosMiller, who has worn glasses since the second grade, has a foundation called Vons Vision, which provides low-income Denver children with the eye care and corrective eyewear. His cleats feature an eye-catching eye chart motif. Additional info here.Vernon Davis, WashingtonDavis always had an artistic impulse but kept it under wraps as a kid because other children ridiculed him. He now has a personal foundation that promotes art education and appreciation among disadvantaged youth. His cleats have a paint-splatter theme that nicely captures the spirit of artistic improvisation. Additional info here.Devin McCourty, Patriots, and Jason McCourty, TitansTwin brothers Devin and Jason McCourty have sickle cell disease in their family, and they have a foundation devoted to battling the disease. Their custom cleats show the foundations logo along with both brothers, in uniform, defending a pass. Devin will wear his shoes this Sunday, while Jason will have to wait until Week 14, because the Titans have a bye this week. Additional info here.Doug Baldwin, SeahawksBaldwin represents the Southern Youth Sports Association, whose logo is a tiger -- hence the tiger stripes on the cleats hell be wearing this Sunday. Although Baldwin plays for the Seahawks, it seems like a safe bet that everyone on the Bengals will soon be clamoring for a design like this one.Brock Osweiler, TexansOsweiler is showing his support for Ronald McDonald House Charities, which provides assistance to families with sick children. His cleats have a nice design element: If the two shoes are positioned together side by side, McDonalds signature golden arches are formed.Aaron Rodgers, PackersRodgers supports the MACC Fund -- thats Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer. The organizations logo features a green child and a gold child, so Rodgers will wear one green shoe and one gold shoe -- which should also mesh nicely with Green Bays color scheme.Ben Roethlisberger, SteelersHeres another case of a big-name quarterback wholl be wearing two different-colored shoes. Roethlisbergers personal foundation supports police and fire departments, with a particular emphasis on K-9 units and service dogs, which explains the K-9 logo on his cleats. Not the flashiest design youll see this Sunday, but the mismatched colors should definitely stand out.Johnny Hekker, RamsHas any NFL player ever worn a cleat with a two-tone paint job, split down the center? Its a really sharp look, and Hekker will be wearing it in support of Waterboys, a group that partners with NFL players to provide clean drinking water to rural East African communities.Cameron Jordan, SaintsThe United Way and the NFL have been partners for generations. The nonprofit groups blue, red and orange logo is a perfect fit for the color scheme on Jordans cleats -- nicely done.Pierre Gar?on, WashingtonGar?on, who is Haitian-American, has a foundation that supports sustainable initiatives in Haiti. With its vibrant colors and silhouetted logo, this will be one of the boldest designs of the week. Additional info here.Ezekiel Elliott, CowboysElliott already wore his custom cleats in last nights game against the Vikings, but theyre too good not to include here. Elliott is a lifelong animal lover, so his cleats supported the SPCA of Texas and featured paw prints and dog bones, along with a portrait of Elliotts own dog, Ace. Additional info here. (Elliott isnt the only player using his feet to support our four-footed friends. Check out the pair being worn on Sunday by Logan Ryan of the Patriots.)Stefon Diggs, VikingsThis is another one from last night. Diggs supported the American Heart Association with a design that showed the inner workings of a human heart, complete with veins, valves and more. Very anatomical! (Several other players are also representing the AHA on their cleats with more conventional but nonetheless powerful designs, like this pair being worn by Saints Brandin Cooks of the Saints.)For additional photos and information on the custom-designed cleats that players will be wearing this week, look here and here, and follow the hashtag #MyCauseMyCleats.Paul Lukas, if he were playing in the NFL this week, would wear cleats supporting the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Defencemen Drew Doughty, Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf also scored for the Canadians, who started their gold-medal defence 2-0. Goalie Roberto Luongo, getting the call in place of Game 1 starter Carey Price, was solid when needed in making 23 saves for the shutout. EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregons Dana Altman did a fine imitation of a hockey coach when he least expected it.Ahead early in what he considered a developmental game, Altman went with five-man shift changes to spread the minutes among his Ducks, and it worked with 10 players getting between 18 and 22.Preseason All-America Dillon Brooks scored 21 points and Roman Sorkin had a career-high 15 as No. 23 Oregon rolled to a 93-54 victory over Western Oregon on Wednesday night.Brooks, still working his way back from offseason foot surgery, and Sorkin contributed most to the Ducks 50 points off the bench.Its kind of the way it worked out, Altman said. When we got the early lead, I decided to play everybody equal minutes, so it really wasnt my plan going in.Chris Boucher added 14 points and eight rebounds for the Ducks (6-2), who won their fourth straight game and 29th in a row at home. Tyler Dorsey had 12 points.Oregon made nine of its first 12 shots to go up by 14 points early and toyed with the Division II Wolves (4-4) the rest of the first half, shooting 16 of 26 to carry a 48-20 lead into the break.The Ducks scored the first seven points of the second half to cap an 18-0 run and pushed their lead to a high of 51 with 5 minutes to play.Sorkin, who hadnt played in the last four games, had three of Oregons eight 3-pointers and missed only one of his six shots. The 6-foot-10 junior from Israel has played sparingly for the Ducks, averaging just 5.3 minutes in 30 career games, but he made up for lost time Wednesday night.Every time I step on the court I feel like I can make the open shot, he said, so I just let the game come to me.Oregon had a 52-27 edge in rebounds. Jordan Bell led with 12 and Kavell Bigby-Williams had 10.Kavell obviously can help us on the boards, a place where we need help, Altman said, so I thought there were some positives.Brian Berg led Western Oregon with 17 points and had five 3-pointers.BIG PICTUUREWestern Oregon: The Wolves, who won a school-record 31 games en route to the 2016 Division II Final Four, already have as many losses as they did all last season. Nike Roshe Two Flyknit Mens. The defending Great Northwest Athletic Conference champions were picked for sixth place this year.Oregon: The soft portion of the Ducks schedule will allow Altman to continue tinkering with his starting lineup, which included the 6-10 Bigby-Williams for the first time Wednesday night. Altman had three of last years starters -- Brooks, Bell and Casey Benson -- among the five coming off the bench at the first media timeout.POLL IMPLICATIONSHome cooking and five unranked opponents to finish its nonconference schedule should give Oregon some rankings bounce heading into its opening Pac-12 games in late December against No. 11 UCLA and USC, also in Eugene.STAT OF THE NIGHT: The Ducks attempted 11 free throws, making nine, before the Wolves, who were whistled for 15 fouls in the first half, tried their first. Oregon finished 23 of 28 from the line, and Western Oregon was 3 of 4, thanks to a 25-7 foul differential.HE SAID IT: Altman saw some body language from his players that he didnt like during the rout. Theyre worried more about missing shots than they are about execution and toughness on defense and rebounding, he said. Weve got to get those thoughts out of their heads. They quit playing when they miss a shot and starting feeling sorry for themselves.UP NEXTWestern Oregon travels to Montana State Billings on Monday night to resume GNAC play. The Wolves beat Concordia (Ore.) 80-70 on Tuesday.Oregon plays the third of five straight home games when it hosts Savannah State on Saturday. The Ducks have all seven of their December games in the state of Oregon, including one against UNLV in Portland on Dec. 17.
