NFL stars inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame are gifted with special gold jackets. Members of this elite group walked onto the field ahead of the 2017 Super Bowl kickoff wearing those distinguished gold jackets — except for Shannon Sharpe and Jerry Rice.

Sharpe showed up to NRG Stadium in Houston wearing a grey suit and glittery sneakers.

He was extremely excited about his shoes, if his Twitter post is any indication:

Meanwhile, Rice came out dancing in a blue suit with a pink shirt.

Getting it started Super a Bowl LI!!!!

Both Rice and Sharpe looked good — but one Twitter user wasn't happy with their choice to forgo the blessed gold jacket. Sharpe tweeted the following response to the fan:

You do you, Sharpe.
