Spikes From The Diamond: MLB's Best Cleats Of The 2018 SZN



Bryce Harper, Washington Nats, RF

  • Blessing one of the most electric players in the majors, @solesbysir  had Harper in a one of one pair Supreme x Louis Vuitton bustoms on opening day that would make YG big jealous.

  • More sick custom work from @solesbysir with these throwed pair of Vans Sk8-Hi inspired Under Armor Harper 2 RM worn Players' weekend.



Robinson Cano, Seattle Mariners 2B

  • @mach275 hooked the 2nd baseman's Nike Huarache with a DBZ Goku x Cheetah print custom art. Colors going stupid tropical edition.



Mike Clevinger, Cleveland Indians P

  • How can you not rock with Ohana themed Disney inspired Under Armor x Lilo & Stitch/Moana custom art? Like forreal?!

  • And if you were wondering who had the best cleats during MLB Players’ weekend…WINNER WINNER BIG CHICKEN DINNER. These Under Armor’s feature custom art of the greatest guitarist of all time, Jimi Hendrix; with these Clevinger earns his title as wave god and sits alone on his throne when it comes to custom cleats. Go ahead and stare at these for a sec and feel the psychedelic effects provided by the layers of tie dye all through the forefoot.



Dexter Fowler, St. Louis Cardinals OF

  • Up and coming designer Naya Fowler made a big splash with Jordan brand, helping her daddy out with the creative direction behind these Air Jordan XI cleats. Naya why you have to break em off with the glitter rainbow outsole? Looking forward to the 4 year olds next work.



Adam Jones, Baltimore Orioles CF

  • Your granddaddy’s favorite walking shoe has inspired the likes of Puma, Adidas, Under Armor, Gucci, Balenciaga and many other major brands that are now riding the extremely popular and fashion forward, dad shoe wave. Photoed above, Adam Jones is stunting in the classic Nike Monarch with custom art from @kdcustomkicks featuring Jones’ favorite, hella junk food.

  • Simpson's Pink Donut edition.



Mookie Betts, Boston Red Sox RF

  •  @ikb20_customs and Jordan Brand spazzed with these Air Jordan IX PE customs showing love to Fenway Park, starring the Red Sox mascot Wally.



Scooter Gennett, Cincinatti Reds 2B

  • Honoring the Late great Dale Earnhardt on Players' weekend; Gennett’s Jordan cleats features the patented checkered flag, Earnhardt’s #3, all on black Goodyear tires.



Manny Machado, Los Angeles Dodgers 3B

  • Paying homage to his grandfather, the All-Star 3rd baseman hits the diamond in some cool powder blue Father’s Day Air Jordan IX low cleat.

  • Jordan Brand loves Mommas almost as much as Machado loves Jordan IX lows. Here’s his Mother's Day Pink Rose Air Jordan IX low cleat.



Cameron Maybin, Seattle Mariners CF

  • One of my personal favorites on the list, Mariners center fielder Cameron Maybin was caught rocking a pair of Nike Lebron 15 "Fruity Pebbles" cleats & went with the pink laces to match on Mother’s Day.

  • So for Players’ weekend Maybin called upon @VictusSports to go sicko mode with the Travis Scott x Air Jordan IV Cactus Jack customs and indeed they delivered.



Taylor Motter, Minnesota Twins SS

  • @kdcustomkicks  Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez PF Flyer, known for drastically increasing your overall speed and leadership skills; Taylor Motter is fully aware. “Heroes get remembered but legends never die” featured on the side along with every member of the Sandlot gang. These need to be put on display in Cooperstown straight up.



Tyler Austin, Minnesota Twins 1B

  • Minnesota Twins first baseman linked with @ikb20_customs for these sweet Nike customs. Went with the Paradise x Trout on ya feet vibe. I digg, I digg.



Miguel Rojas, Miami Marlins SS

  • Always a huge supporter of hoop shoes getting converted over to the diamond; Rojas took advantage of the OKC Thunder colorways that came with Paul George switching teams. Here he is sporting the Nike PG 1 cleat to perfection.

  • For Players’ Weekend, Marlins’ shortstop requested more sauce and more sauce was what he got. @solesbysir with the beautiful work on these Nike Huaraches with custom mismatching Air Jordan 1 paint job.



Gio Gonzalez, Milwaukee Brewers P

  • Jordan Brand laced Gonzalez with Memorial Day kicks to match the kit. These Camo Air Jordan IX are tough to say the least.

  • The Left handed pitcher went codeine crazy on Players' weekend with a pair of custom one of one Air Jordan XI cleats featuring splattered paint throughout the heel and toe box. V. rare.



Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs 3B

  • Every Players’ Weekend, Bryant helps support “Wings for Life, a non-profit spinal cord research foundation whose mission is to find a cure for spinal cord injury. Shout out to Lauren Asta, Frank Quintero, and Miss Merlot who were the artists who created & designed the pairs for the former MVP.



CC Sabathia, New York Yankees P

  • As one of baseball's first pioneers to ink with Jordan Brand, Bay Area native Big CC still sets the standard for young bouls in the Majors when it comes to kicks. Check the custom art on these two pairs of Air Jordan IX cleats by @mache275 displaying iconic throwback cartoons from the likes of Inspector Gadget, Raphael from the Ninja Turtles, Garfield, Bart Simpson and an entire airbrushed pair devoted to his 80s favorite Thundercats Hoooooo! Dude yes
