The Chicago Cubs are out of the playoffs, but Kris Bryant is still doing his part to spread some magic in October.  During MLB’s “Players Weekend” in August, Kris Bryant wore three pairs of specially designed cleats to shine a light on spinal cord research. Now, fans can bid on those game-worn cleats at charitybuzz.com/KBcleats.  In those cleats, Kris Bryant went 4 for 11 with a homerun and a sizzling .364 average against the Phillies.

As you may know, the cause is near to Bryant because he is friends with Cory Hahn, a former All-American high school baseball player who was paralyzed sliding into 2nd base in 2011 while a freshman at Arizona State University.

As background, three Chicago street artists designed the cleats with a theme of “Wings” in honor of the Wings for Life Foundation, which is dedicated to raising money for spinal cord research. Each pair also celebrated one of the three cities that have given Kris Bryant his wings in life – Las Vegas, San Diego and Chicago.

Who are the artists?

The Las Vegas edition cleat was designed by artist Joseph Perez – aka “Sentrock” – using inspiration from Bryant’s hometown of Las Vegas.

The San Diego edition cleat was designed by street artist JC Rivera, in honor of Bryant’s University of San Diego days when he became a nationally known name in the world of baseball.

The Chicago edition cleat was designed by artist Max Sansing, who was born in Chicago and has a history with Kris Bryant dating back to Summer 2016 when he collaborated on a stunning mural of the player that is still up in the heart of Chicago’s Wrigleyville.
