Brian Wilson's New Cleats Are Even More Awesome Than His Orange Spikes
So now, a year later, Wilson talks about his facial fame. "I never knew there was such thing as morning beard," Wilson tells MLB. "It's like a spider's nest."
Aside from his iconic shoe-polish-black beard, Wilson also garnered fame for the hideous orange cleats he wore during last year's All-Star game. He was later fined for trying to don them again in the regular season. But screw the orange cleats. Wilson will be wearing some new spikes for the All-Star game that promise to be even more eccentric.
"I wanted metal shoelaces, but apparently they don't tie well," Wilson says. "It could have been glorious."
The orange and black cleats are hand-painted with a picture of Wilson (no machine!) above each Nike swoosh.
