Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Stefon Diggs might roast cornerbacks life coffee beans while outfitted in Starbucks cleats for the Minnesota Vikings' second preseason game.

Diggs will sport the special shoes for the Vikings' game at 10 p.m. Friday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.

Mache Custom Kicks was responsible for making the slick kicks. The mostly white shoes feature the traditional Starbucks check boxes on the toe, with some of them crossed out with a sharpie like design. They feature the traditional brown coffee cup hand protector sleeve on the laces and the Starbucks logo on the side.

"My love for Starbucks is a 4ever thing..." Diggs tweeted Wednesday.

Starbucks also got in on the Twitter love.

"The love is equal, forever & ever," the company tweeted.

The shoes also feature Diggs' name in the form of "Digz." Diggs will be subject to a fine if he ends up wearing the cleats in the game, as they feature a brand name.

Mache Custom Kicks said that Diggs will bring another pair with him for the contest.

Diggs, 23, had a career-best 903 yards and three touchdowns on 84 receptions in 13 games last season. He had one catch for five yards in the Vikings' 17-10 win against the Buffalo Bills in his first preseason game of the season on August 10 at Ralph Wilson Stadium in New York.

The original Starbucks is located at Pick Place Market in downtown Seattle. The company was established in 1971.
