FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is a bit of a sneaker junkie who even wore a pair with his suit when he visited the White House.

Now he has a new, special edition pair of Nikes bearing his initials. The shoe will retail for $140. Kraft says in a signed note on the Nike website that proceeds from the sales will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Boston.

Timed for release on the morning of the team’s Thursday night opener, the new Nike Air Force Ultra Flyknit Low RKK is gray with blue and red trim to match the Patriots colors. It comes with five removable patches featuring team slogans and logos and includes Kraft’s initials “R.K.K.” on a piece of chrome trim.

A previous version was released in black in November.

Kraft is commonly seen on the field before games wearing sneakers along with his business suit. Says tight end Rob Gronkowski: “He’s always looking smooth and he always has a nice pair of kicks going with his suits.”
