The Phillie Phanatic was clearly flattered by Bryce Harper's decision to sport some spikes commemorating the green fella on opening day.

He was so flattered that he paid the gesture back to Harper.

Yes, the Phillie Phanatic got himself some Bryce shoes. Well, his same lime green kicks but with Harper's face on them.

Now that's some amazing dedication by the Phanatic. The guy just gets it.

He was so proud of his work that he had to show his buddy Bryce.

Harper approved.

If Harper's cleats or the Phanatic's shoes were sold in stores, they'd be a hit. You'd see a lot more lime green around the city, that's for certain.

Another thing for certain: Harper has a new best friend in the Phillie Phanatic.

And they're only two games into this 13-year friendship.
