Players around MLB showed off their collection of fancy footwear once again, and some were in a giving mood.

New York Yankees center fielder Aaron Judge gifted rapper and record producer G-Eazy a pair of Jordan 11 cleats.

Judge wore the Jordan 11s back on April 14 when the Yankees took two of three games in their series versus the Cleveland Guardians.

The Yankees are in the mix with the Orioles at the top of the AL East at 19-11, and Judge quickly found some replacement shoes for their series against the Oakland Athletics.

Here are the other top cleats worn throughout the MLB this week.

The New York Mets revealed their City Connect jerseys on April 19 and debuted them during their series versus the St. Louis Cardinals. The shortstop had a pair of New Balance cleats to celebrate the occasion.

Lindor's cleats featured a white base with the logo in blue, while purple shades dominated the look.

The Mets went 1-2 during their weekend series against the Cardinals. Lindor struggled but had a home run during their lone win in an extra-innings game Sunday.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Toronto Blue Jays

Guerrero showed off a custom pair of Air Jordan 1 cleats when the Toronto Blue Jays faced off the Los Angeles Dodgers this past weekend. The pair is mostly red and white, but has blue spots surrounding the heel of the shoe.

The Blue Jays went 1-2 in their weekend series. Guerrero hit a pair of home runs in the 3-1 win Sunday.

Mookie Betts, Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop has been on an offensive tear, batting with a .387 average, six home runs and 23 RBIs.

His shoe game has been just as impressive, as Betts featured this sleek pair of gray cleats against the Blue Jays this weekend.
