Seahawks Unbox 2023 'My Cause My Cleats' 

Players, coaches and Seahawks Legends are supporting the NFL’s My Cause My Cleats initiative to support organizations that are important to them. 


Through the NFL's initiative, players, coaches and Seahawks Legends get to support organizations that are meaningful to them through custom-made cleats and shoes.

This is the eighth season of the My Cause My Cleats campaign and this initiative allows players to use their platforms to bring awareness to important causes. This gives players a chance to show causes that are important to them outside of football and "wear their hearts on their cleats."

"We are thrilled to once again provide players, coaches and team staff the platform to showcase causes that are meaningful to them on the field through My Cause My Cleats," said NFL Senior Vice President of Player Operations Tracy Perlman. "The record levels of participation in this season's initiative underscore the collective commitment across the league to making a positive difference in our communities."

When the Seahawks travel to Dallas for their Thursday night matchup, some players will be sporting their custom-made cleats.

Following the game some players will be auctioning off their cleats with the money being donated to that player's cause they are supporting. Fans can bid on the cleats here after the game.
