Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen is known best for his great hands, but the budding star has turned heads with his footwear this season. 

Last week, Thielen sported some custom cleats with the Mighty Ducks logo on them from the classic Minnesota youth hockey film and this week he went with a new movie reference. 

This week's cleats are a nod to the classic Adam Sandler football movie, "The Waterboy" which features a fictional college team called the SCLSU Mud Dogs. 

While they aren't playing the in "Bourbon Bowl" like the Mud Dogs did in the film, Thielen and his Vikings hope to grab a win today when they take on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

You can catch the game and the Vikings Postgame Show live on Fox 9 starting at noon. 


Custom cleat designer Mache, known on Instagram and Twitter as @mache275, designed cleats for Thielen and his Wide Receiver teammate Stefon Diggs last week. He designed another pair for Diggs Sunday in an ode to the Starz TV show "Power." 

In addition to Diggs and Thielen, Mache added Quarterback Kirk Cousins to his list, giving him a set of "You Vike That" cleats for Sunday.
