The 4th of July is finally here and the MLB will be celebrating with a huge slate of games, including an AL Central collision between the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox.

Though the Twins vs. White Sox in-game action will garner most fans' attention, Minnesota outfielder Byron Buxton is sure to steal some looks with his latest fashion statement. The former Gold Glove winner has unveiled the amazing pair of Independence Day-inspired cleats that he'll be rocking on Monday.

You can check out Stadium Custom Kicks' recent Twitter post below to see just how amazing the cleats look. It's hard not to feel a bit more patriotic looking at them.

Twins fans are thrilled that Buxton is healthy enough this season to wear his new kicks. Injuries have plagued the 28-year-old throughout his career, allowing him to reach triple-digit games played only once in seven previous campaigns. Fortunately, that isn't the case in 2022.

By suiting up in 61 games this season, Buxton has already matched his total from 2021. While his .227 batting average is far from eye-popping, he's been creating his own fireworks this year with a career-high 21 home runs, tying for the team lead with 38 RBIs as well.

The Twins currently sit 4.5 games ahead of the White Sox for the AL Central lead. That lead can grow even bigger if Buxton can help give the fanbase a second reason to celebrate on the 4th of July.
