Best Cleats from April 15-29

2024 Topps Big League Baseball #122 Fernando Tatis Jr. Black Foil SSP /25 | Off White “Cloudy Sky” Jordan 1s

Get used to seeing Fernando Tatis Jr. on Cleat Heat. The Padres’ superstar is in the driver’s seat for 2024 “Cleat King,” and he won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Against the Rockies on April 22, 2024, the splashy outfielder pulled out the Off White “Cloudy Sky” Jordan 1s. Talk about heat! R.I.P. Virgil Abloh

2024 Topps Heritage #275 Alex Verdugo | Air Jordan 1 Taxi Custom

Alex Verdudgo’s turned down his swag a bit since joining the Yankees in 2024, as the team’s limited him to wearing one chain a game. That hasn’t stopped him from still being one of the sauciest players in the MLB. Against the Rays on April 21, the outfielder saluted his new city with an ode to its taxi drivers in the custom Air Jordan 1’s above. With the custom kicks on his feet, “Dugie” went 3-for-4 and helped New York to a 5-4 win.

2024 Topps Series One #243 Michael Harris II | New Balance FuelCell 4040V7 Customs

Michael Harris II felt mighty festive when the Braves hosted the Rangers on April 21, 2024. The Atlanta-bred outfielder broke out a pair of New Balance FuelCell 4040V7 Customs featuring Braves mascot Blooper adorned on both sides of the cleat. The kicks also boast a fuzzy fur on the tongue of the shoe, but check out the “I Wanna Be Like Mike” quote on the side. Nice touch, eh? Harris might have a say in the “Cleat King” 2024 race. It ain’t over until October!

2024 Topps Series One 1989 #89B-22 Francisco Lindor | New Balance FuelCell Lindor 2 

Francisco Lindor makes a statement on the field with his signature New Balance FuelCell Lindor 2s. On April 27, as the Mets donned their City Connect jerseys for their game against the Cardinals, Lindor’s cleats stole the spotlight with a colorway perfectly complementing the team’s attire. Welcome to Cleat Heat, Mr. Lindor—this could be just the beginning of many standout features.

2024 MLB TOPPS NOW® Card 89 Juan Soto | Under Armour Yard Low

Against the Blue Jays on April 17, 2024, Juan Soto went deep and became the seventh youngest player in MLB history to reach 500 RBIs in the last 50 years (25 years and 175 days). He did so in the Under Armour Yard Low’s. We can’t lie. The all white with blue laces go crazy with the Yankees uniform. Heat!
