Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs knows how to play to a home crowd, even when he’s on the road. For Friday’s preseason game against the Seahawks, he received customized, Starbucks-themed cleats. While Starbucks is now one of the best-known global brands, it was founded in Seattle and is still headquartered there.

The designers at Mache Custom Kicks whipped up these customized cleats that replicate a Starbucks coffee cup. And in typical Starbucks style, they spelled his name wrong on the heel.

The NFL recently relaxed its footwear rules to give players greater flexibility with customization. But the league still does not allow trademarked symbols other than those of their three partnered shoe brand — Nike, Adidas and Under Armour. Mache Custom Kicks said there’s no official endorsement between Diggs and Starbucks, but Diggs could still face a fine if he wears the cleats on Friday because they showcase the Starbucks logo.

Fortunately, Diggs will have an extra pair of cleats that presumably abide by league rules.

But considering how much Diggs loves his Starbucks, maybe a fine is worth the experience.

We’ve seen plenty of awesome customized cleats, whether it’s to honor veterans, raise awareness for charities, or pay tribute to late athletes. But planting a brand logo on gameday footwear is something new.

Last week, Mache Custom Kicks also made Diggs customized “Cleveland Show” cleats.
