Thursday is Opening Day in DC, people, which, yeah, means more baseball and all that, but most important? It means another season of Bryce Harper’s fresh kicks.

You probably saw the Washington Nats right fielder sport some Supreme x Louis Vuitton cleats at the team’s first game against Cincinnati last Friday. If Harper’s past footwear is any indication, those Louis cleats are only the tip of the sartorial iceberg to come this season. Not only does he have a vast personal collection, Harper also has his own collaboration with Under Armour.

Herewith, a lineup of some of the most entertaining and unusual cleats designed or donned by Harper.
