Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen will be paying tribute to NBA legend Michael Jordan in the team’s Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers through some custom-designed cleats.

The pair of footwear features artwork of Jordan rocking his University of North Carolina gear. Jordan played for the Tar Heels from 1981 to 1984, leading the basketball team to an NCAA championship in 1982.

As for Thielen, this will not be the first time he dons a pair of cleats designed by well-known sneaker artist Dan Gamache.

Earlier this season, the 31-year-old wore “Turd Ferguson” tribute cleats to honor the late Canadian comedian Norm Macdonald. Last year, he also paid tribute to long-time “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek, who had just died after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

Thielen later auctioned off the “Jeopardy!” cleats for charity. One can imagine that he might end up auctioning cleats honoring Jordan as well.
