Jim Harbaugh Sports Cleats for Good Luck

Posted Dec 9, 2013

Jim Harbaugh discussed his latest football accessory, sideline cleats.

Michael Crabtree and Jonathan Goodwin have been receiving attention for their football cleats recently, but they might soon get overshadowed by their coach, Jim Harbaugh.

San Francisco’s head coach has already become a football fashion icon because of the superstitious nature of his gameday attire. In three seasons, Harbaugh has worn his signature black fleece tucked into his khaki pants. Only cold weather games have prevented the ensemble to be complete.

The winning wardrobe, however, has been changed up a bit in recent weeks.

Harbaugh revealed the inside scoop on his latest sideline accessory.

The 49ers coach has been wearing black Nike football cleats in recent games.

“Have I? Yes,” Harbaugh said to the fashion police at his Monday press conference.

The change from sneakers to cleats was prompted by a sideline fracas in Tennessee. Harbaugh said he had “no traction” when members of the 49ers and Titans were tangled up in a pushing match, one that San Francisco’s head coach jumped in to break up.

“Didn’t want to be in that position again,” Harbaugh said.

The 49ers coach didn’t wear them for two games since, both were 49ers losses to Carolina and New Orleans.

Harbaugh’s good-luck cleats have been with him in each of San Francisco's three-straight victories, including Sunday’s win over Seattle.

“I’ve been wearing the cleats because we’ve won every time I’ve worn the cleats,” Harbaugh said. “So, there was a time I was superstitious about not being superstitious, now I’m suddenly superstitious a little bit.”
