Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Not only did Stefon Diggs honor Randy Moss with his play Monday, he also paid homage with his custom cleats.

The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver had 93 yards and two touchdowns on seven catches in a 29-19 win against the New Orleans Saints. On Monday, the Vikings also honored Moss by inducting him into the franchise's Ring of Honor.

Diggs sported slick black hand-painted Nike cleats. One featured Moss sticking his tongue out and sporting a large afro. The other blended black, purple and gold shoe featured Moss' infamous mooning touchdown celebration. That moss antic occurred in 2005 during a Wild Card playoff game at Lambeau Field after he scored against the Green Bay Packers.

"Just paying tribute, paying respect, he's coming back, so I wanted to give my respect to him," Diggs told Vikings.com. "Hopefully I get to see him."

The special shoes were made by Mache Custom Kicks.

"Cleats honoring the @RandyMoss tonight," Mache Custom Kicks tweeted. "Me and @stefondiggs wanted to come right for #MNF. Everything hand painted. #moss #skol."

Wide receiver Adam Thielen also wore Moss inspired cleats in the victory. His purple shoes featured the No. 84 on the upper and the name Moss on the heal. Kyle Rudolph wore Moss inspired Jordan brand kicks for the victory.

Thielen also had himself a night, reeling in a game-high nine receptions for 157 yards.

After the game, Moss autographed Diggs' shoes.

"Bro, I appreciate the love, boy," Moss told Diggs on the ESPN postgame set for the Monday Night Football matchup.

Moss currently serves as an analyst for the network.
