Notre Dame will open the 2012 season against Navy in Dublin, Ireland, and it'll do it in style.

Ryan Grooms of the Notre Dame equipment staff tweeted out a photo Monday of Notre Dame's new adidas cleats, which are designed to look like the flag of Ireland.

Honestly, the cleat has a very soccer feel to it, but it's still very cool.

No word on whether there will be any other Irish adornments to Notre Dame's uniforms, but this is a nice start.
