Johnny Cueto's new cleats are even hotter than the heat dome

Quick, what was the hottest thing in the Bronx when the Giants took on the Yankees on Saturday afternoon? You might think the correct answer is "everything," thanks to the heat dome encircling New York City, but you'd be wrong. What you really should have said was "Johnny Cueto's cleats."


Sure, the sun might be making half the country feel like the inside of a dragon's mouth, but it's also making Cueto's white and gold shoes shimmer like two impossibly beautiful mirages. But unlike mirages, they're thankfully 100 percent real.
