Wow this Players Weekend thing is turning out to be better than the All-Star Game. Very cool idea made much cooler by the fact that the brands are embracing it.
Under Armour is one of the brands that has really taken the initiative to put the creative direction in the hands of their athletes for this weekend’s games. It’s turned out to be a great decision, as these are some of the sickest cleats we’ve ever seen (Cody Bellinger’s above didn’t crack our list!). It looks like @solesbysir is the artist behind these beauties.
Here are the top 9 UA cleats for Players Weekend. Follow us on IG for more.
9. Buster Posey
8. Clayton Kershaw
Clayton Kershaw has been wearing these cleats since WPW started in 2012, but now they’ve got a purpose. From Kershaw’s Challenge: “Kershaw’s Challenge is a Christ-centered, others-focused organization. We exist to encourage people to use whatever God-given passion or talent they have to make a difference and give back to people in need.”
7. Wilson Contreras
Wilson Contreras’ Venezuelan patriotism is not in question.
6. Dee Gordon
Dee Gordon keeps it real clean with these and I’m a huge fan. Great colors.
5. Bryce Harper
Not sure if you guys know what these are, but they’re called emojis and in the future they will replace the English language. Bryce picks some of his favorites on this Harper 2: faith, love, fashion, and naps. (Unfortunately Bryce isn’t fully recovered from injury just yet, so he won’t be playing this weekend.)
4. Bryce Harper
Maybe I’ve been in San Francisco for too long, but I’m feeling the tye-dye look, mannnn. Cool idea from Bryce to go wild. Such a shame he can’t wear these!
3. Kolten Wong
Kolten never misses an opportunity to let his home state shine. The hula girl erupting from the volcano is the definition of the fire emoji.
2. Trea Turner
We hope Trea Turner, arguably the fastest man in baseball, gets to BEEP BEEP a little bit in his rehab starts this weekend, because these Roadrunner customs are too legit to be on the shelf. Looking forward to see Turner back blazing again soon.
1. Bryce Harper
“Eye of the Tiger” for the win. They’re staring into your soul, and they know where you eat, sleep, and what pitch you’re about to throw.
