From anti-racism to anti-bullying, the Arizona Cardinals are busting out some incredible custom cleats for the NFL's "My Cause, My Cleats" week.

For this weekend's slate of games, NFL players have the option of wearing cleats to promote any number of causes and messages. Here's a look at a few choices Cardinals players have made for Sunday's home game vs. the Washington Redskins.

-Safety Tyrann Mathieu will wear cleats to promote racial harmony via RISEtoWIN.org. "It's been a rough year for racial divide in our country, so for me, it was important to symbolize all of us coming together, all of us treating each other as equals," Mathieu told AZCardinals.com.

-Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald's cleats will promote his First Down Fund chairty, which raises money for positive activities for kids and their families.

-Running back David Johnson, who wrote a phenomenal anti-bullying column in the Players' Tribune last month, will wear cleats promoting that message.

-Quarterback Carson Palmer will wear cleats in support of Phoenix Children's Hospital, a cause he has supported for years.

-Cornerback Patrick Peterson is supporting his own charity, Patrick Peterson's Foundation for Success, which provides resources for low-income and inner-city youth.

-Center A.Q. Shipley will honor his mother, a breast cancer survivor, with his cleats.

-Defensive end Calais Campbell will wear cleats to raise mental health awareness on behalf of his own charity, the CRC Foundation.
