Besides running a slightly modified version of stock Android, arguably one of the better features of the Moto X is customization. Customers can visit Motorola’s MotoMaker site and choose from a variety of colorful back covers or opt for something a bit more unique and go with a wood or leather option – I chose cognac leather for mine. Well football fans, it looks like Motorola will be bringing you an additional customization choice in the near future.

Coming the third week of November, football fans will be able to purchase a Moto X with a leather back that looks and feels like a traditional football. There’s no word on carrier exclusivity, however our tipster only provided us with information for Verizon’s variant as shown below. There’s also no word on pricing, but if it’s anything like the current leather options, you should expect to fork over an additional $25 your footballified Moto X.



While this special leather back might allow for a better grip on your Moto X, I wouldn’t recommend tossing your phone around with your friends and family this Thanksgiving. Well, that’s it for now. If we get any more information, we’ll update this post accordingly.

Update: Horween Leather Company, the company that supplies Motorola with leather backs for the Moto X, just so happens to also be the exclusive leather supplier for the NFL’s footballs. If Horween is behind this back too, there’s a very good chance the back of this phone is going to feel like an actual football as mentioned above.

Thanks Mr. D!
