The cleats in question clearly were in violation of the NFL’s strict uniform policy. The red Adidas resembled Christmas stockings, featured his name and even had bells on them.

Kamara removed the bells before kickoff, however.
The rookie Saints running back admitted to being well aware of the likelihood of a fine for the cleats, as the team’s equipment manager informed him of the potential eventuality beforehand. Kamara even joked about starting up a GoFundMe page once the fined arrived.
“I’m going to make a GoFundMe — yeah, I’m getting fined — and whatever the fine is, I’m going to pay the fine and the rest I’m going to donate to a charity,” Kamara said on Sunday. “Simple as that.”
