GLENDALE, Ariz. — All gold, everything.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was spotted wearing his now famous gold cleats during warm-ups at the Super Bowl.

Fox Sports’ Peter Schrager reports there was “lots of dialogue” between NFL officials and both teams.

NFL Insider Mike Garafolo said an league official first spoke with Lynch, then to Seahawks General Manager John Schneider before the game.

The gold-plated shoes made headlines just before the NFC Championship game when the league reportedly told Lynch he would not be allowed to play if he wore the cleats.

The footwear has real gold flakes and is valued at more than $1,000, according to TMZ, which first reported on the shoes.

Only time will tell if Beast Mode will wear the shoes?
