Today we are all patriots, so its fitting that we kick off this post with the cleats of Jon Hunton of the Somerset Patriots. These are @whatproswear’s most popular Instagram post ever with almost 9,000 likes, and honestly I think they deserve better. Tremendous work by @moonbootcustoms
What follows is custom pandemonium. We’ve been doing this a while, and this is the best holiday custom spread we’ve ever seen.
Brandon Barnes with his own take on patriotism. He tagged us in these and said “they are even better in person.” These were done by @303custom_cleats.
My personal favorite, Austin Dean’s NB 4040v3s by @k_o.brand_kickasso. They make me want to stand and salute.
Bryce Harper tagged WPW in his armed forces salute by @kreativecustomkicks and @dezcustomz. Gotta love these. Check out Bryce’s Statue of Liberty bat, which he says he won’t use but we’ll have to see it to believe it.

Jaw Bats got in on the mix too with an American flag finish.
Back in spring training Tyler Flowers told us that one of his favorite parts about being involved with Force3 is that he gets to design his own gear. We saw T-Flow in these during last night’s Fort Bragg Game. I would have left out the volt but they’re still dirty.
Out of the brands designing specifically for the 4th, adidas is in a league of their own with these Independence Day SMUs. The design includes fireworks and hot dogs (on the inserts). Expect to see these on adidas athletes like Bryant today.
