This year, lets have a look at the contenders and please weigh in at the end!
Mark Reynolds won the day for me with the Bald Eagle staredown UA cleats (first photo). Bald Eagle is so legit and that half and half look of stars and stripes is flat out Big League.
David Phelps/@solesbysir with a more stylized approach which looks pretty unique. Uniqueness is a must at this point, after many years of 4th customs.
@moonbootcustoms had the editor’s choice last year (below), and added a a little extra flair with the fireworks along the midsole.
Why fix it if it ain’t broke? Moonboot Customs did these very similar cleats up last year (with graffiti in place of fireworks).
Mixing in some #catcherswag here with a really cool design on Tyler Flowers’ custom chest protector. Unfortunately, this is a 1 of 1 but Force3 does offer this style at this link.
Martin Maldonado and All-Star’s take on the 4th ain’t bad either. Between the two, I might have to take Maldonado’s. Too clean.
Amazingly, All-Star is offering the same set:
Adidas took the Bomb Pops theme a step further, and made the whole cleat into a Bomb Pop.

Bryce and UA went nuts on these Harper 2s, frankly a little too nuts for me. The two different color thing is tough for me. Speaking of two different colors, these socks were everywhere:
@rockies and just about everybody was rocking these socks. Insanely enough, its July 5 and they’re already sold out on both Stance and MLB sites. Sorry we missed them.
Franklin is currently offering some of their sickest stock colorways we’ve ever seen, and in four different styles!
Mache kept it clean for Robbie Cano with these 3000v3s, and the simple star pattern and smart colors make this cleat pop despite the simplicity.
