Clint Frazier has not only made a name for himself on the New York Yankees but he lets his shoes really do the talking.
In spring training, people assumed Clint Frazier was all talk and no action. How could someone make an impact for the New York Yankees when he couldn’t pass the spring training test?
Not only is Frazier letting his play do the talking, but he’s also now letting his kicks say a few things too.
He has earned a reputation for his notoriously quick hands at the plate and now he’s campaigning to become the player with the coolest kicks in the game. And, let’s be honest: right now, he’s definitely winning.
While CC Sabathia refers to him as “Canal Street Clint,” Frazier has stepped up the shoe game and is serving as a role model for other young players coming up. Play the game and look good doing it. Clint Frazier is doing it all.
But out of the dozens of cleats he’s donned this season, there are clearly some impressive shoes he’s displayed. So let’s count down the top three cleats he’s shared so far with the world.
3. Cactus Jack Jordan 1
Whoa, baby. When Clint Frazier broke out these cleats for an early May game, the entire baseball world took notice. After all, it’s not every day a ballplayer breaks out Travis Scott’s official relaunched shoes.
Admit it: the cleats look absolutely amazing on Frazier’s feet. He’s been wearing a new pair of cleats practically every single night but these cleats are simply impressive.
Instead of plain white cleats, Frazier chose the unique colored cleats to make a statement. While he went 0-for-4 on the night, his shoe game was still on point. Will he wear these cleats again? all signs point to no, as he has yet to be a repeat offender.

2. Derek Jeter Jordans
Clint Frazier knows greatness. He knows the New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter is beloved by fans and the entire sport of baseball. Clint Frazier needed Yankees fans to love him.
The perfect solution? Paying homage to perhaps one of the greatest Yankees players of all time.
Frazier’s Jeter cleats are just straight fire. It’s a way for him to pump up Yankees fans and show that he’s serious about his game. These cleats are the perfect way to show he’s serious about his time in the Bronx.
Using Derek Jeter to win over fans? I mean, he’s already won them over by his hot start before his visit to the IL but he hit a home run in these cleats.
Clearly, he’s going to be loved in the Bronx for a long time.
1. Cat Cleats
There is really no other option for the top cleat that Clint Frazier has brought to the field this season. These cleats are an absolute work of art, honoring his mother and his love of cats.
I mean, just look at the artwork on these cleats. The design itself must have taken hours to complete, all for one use on the ballfield. That, my friends, is dedication to the craft.
We have yet to hear how Frazier’s mother felt about the cleats but I can guarantee you that she must have been beside herself.
And what a guy for exposing his love of cats to the entire world. Some players wouldn’t be that open. But it seems like Clint Frazier loves cats and wants everyone to know.
These are by far the best cleats so far this season and, when looking at all the kicks that have appeared so far, it seems that his shoe game is only improving.
What can we expect in the future? Maybe a “Game of Thrones” pair for the finale? What about one honoring CC Sabathia? He would get a kick out of that, no pun intended.
Whatever shoes come next for the outfielder, they are only going to be even cooler. He’s found his niche not only on the baseball field but in the fashion world.
