Apparently, the two have become pretty good pals after Victorino tweeted out the above picture of a pair of red Christian Louboutin sneakers that Phillips gave him as a gift.
As you can see, the size 6.5 shoes actually come with spikes! Unfortunately, the spikes poke out above the shoe, thus in theory making them illegal to use as actual baseball cleats.
No word yet on what Phillips' motive behind gifting his buddy a pair of classy sneakers was. But I guess we'll just assume he did because he is a super nice guy. Here is what the Gold Glove second basemen said in response to Victorino's tweet, though.
