    Patriots fans will probably get a kick out of the latest collaboration between the team's owner and Nike ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl LI rematch against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Robert Kraft's latest project with Nike is a pair of shoes made from the game balls in the Patriots' latest Super Bowl victory.

    The tongue of the shoe is made from the game ball laces, and features logos and markings from the original balls.

    Proceeds for the shoes, which was made at Nike's Beaverton, Oregon, headquarters, will be used to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.

    Fans can get an in-person peek on Saturday, Oct. 21, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Hall at Patriot Place and from 3 p.m. until close on Sunday at the Patriots ProShop ahead of the game at Gillette Stadium.

    The Patriots made a remarkable comeback against the Falcons earlier this year, beating them 34-28 in overtime.
