Mets slugger Pete Alonso is wearing some intimidating polar bear cleats for All-Star Week

Pete Alonso has been swatting homers at a prodigious rate for the Mets for the past few months. The rookie has put himself on the map in a big way, and his platform will be elevated even higher this week as he partakes in the T-Mobile Home Run Derby and All-Star Game presented by Mastercard at Progressive Field in Cleveland.

Along with his larger-than-life personality and awe-inspiring blasts comes a great nickname: The Polar Bear. Alonso has that nickname because, well, he's very strong, just like a polar bear.

With that in mind, enjoy this look at Alonso's custom polar bear cleats that he was gifted just in time for the week's events:

... and a Derby win?

It's Pete Alonso's world, we're all just living in it.
