Walker Buehler is back for the Dodgers, and he had one heck of a return. With less than a week until his first likely first playoff start, Buehler came on and shut down the A’s offense for 4 great innings of work.
But there was something else other than a great performance that stood out for the young Dodgers pitcher. Buehler came into the stadium holding some of the coolest cleats you will ever see, and fans were dying to know if he was going to wear them in the game.

As it turns out, that’s exactly what he did. Buehler rocked the custom Air Jordan 1’s for his return, with great success in them. But even if he ended up with a bad game, he still managed to pull off one of the coolest looks on the mound I’ve ever seen. Dominic Ciambrone, also known as the Shoe Surgeon, helped to design the custom cleats for the Dodgers co-ace.

For @buehlersdayoff21 we created a shoe fit only for those who bleed blue. Our inspiration rooted in the classic Dodger blue, contrasted by a hand sewn red baseball stitching, and lined with custom-engineered CUTS fabric. Here’s a look into our unboxing with @cuts and @buehlersdayoff21
Check out the custom cleats that include red baseball stitching as well as his own signature on the inside. We have no idea if Buehler will wear them again, but we sure hope this sort of swag sticks around on the mound. The Dodgers start their final series of the year tonight against the Angels in Los Angeles.
