The cleats will be worn during Minnesota’s Dec. 8 home game versus Detroit.

“This partnership with the 3M Open is about so much more than just sports,” said Rudolph. “It represents the power of partnership in working towards a cause greater than ourselves. I am incredibly thankful to the 3M Open for its generous donation to LINK  and for its ongoing commitment to improve lives in our community.”

This past July, Rudolph served as ambassador for the inaugural 3M Open to help advance the tournament’s charitable efforts and event theme of Golf That Matters. The 3M Open donated more than LINK  through the 3M Open Fund, including $600,000 to pillar partner M Health Fairview, University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. Kyle Rudolph’s End Zone is a therapeutic patient care space located on the lobby level of the hospital.

The cleats were brought to life by well-known NFL shoe artist LINK  , who created a design that resembles the iconic exterior of the children’s hospital.

“The hospital building has an eye-catching treatment and I wanted to match that vibrancy on Kyle’s shoes,” said Gamache.

Gamache also applied a LINK  on the cleats by using 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material - C790 Carbon Black Stretch Transfer Film. This technology is currently being used in active wear to enhance visibility in lowlight conditions and will help to illuminate the logos on Rudolph’s shoes. This will mark the first time that C790 Carbon Black reflective technology has ever been highlighted on an NFL cleat.
