TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald will be wearing some eye-popping cleats honoring two heroes for the team's game this Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

The superstar teamed up with cleat designer Marcus Rivero for special shoes that honor the Pat Tillman Foundation. The cleats are mostly in camouflage with the face of former Cardinal Pat Tillman on one side of the right shoe. The foundation's logo is painted in black on the other side.

The cleats are also in memory of the late Sen. John McCain who died last August. Fitzgerald and McCain were friends and he spoke at McCain's memorial service.

"Pat Tillman Foundation" is painted in silver with silver stars on the other shoe.

Tillman, who also played at Arizona State University, famously gave up his NFL career to join the U.S. Army after 9/11. He was killed in 2004 by friendly fire.

The Pat Tillman Foundation helps provide academic scholarships to veterans and their families.

The special cleats are part of the NFL's My Cause My Cleats campaign, which aims to showcase different causes and nonprofits important to different players. The NFL says more than 500 players will showcase their causes during Week 13 games.

USAA also partnered with the NFL for the special campaign.
