Jordan brand put together an extra-special pair of Jordan 9 cleats and shoes in celebration of Mookie Betts’ 2018 MVP. Jordan cleats are exclusive enough, but these Jordan cleats are a collector’s holy grail. Thanks to @reconbeatlab for the images.
The 1-of-1 cleats and shoes celebrate Betts, the first 30/30 man since Trout in 2012, with “MOST VALUABLE PLAYER” block lettering throughout the cleat.
…and some drop dead sexy gold accents and plates. The details matter.
Recon Northwest, a Beaverton, Oregon company that often partners with Nike on special make-ups like Mothers/Fathers Day, produced a box fit for 1 of 1 “MVPEs.” Most Valuable Player Exclusives for those that aren’t picking up what I’m putting down.
Jordan 9 cleats, not these, but for us non-MLB MVP’s, are available on eBay.
Would you wear Mookie Betts’ Jordan 9 MVPE cleats or keep them in the trophy case? I think I’d wear the shoes, because how many people get MVPEs? Its a very rare flex. And I’d trophy case the cleats. What do you think?
In his 2016 MVP season, Mike Trout received similar treatment, and this time the cleats were also done by Recon.
Trout got some gold bottoms in 2014, too.
Josh Donaldson Huarache 2KFilth from 2015 featured his stats. A nice touch.
Which is your fave?
