Marcus Stroman couldn’t resist the Jumpman in his Queens debut, rocking the Jordan 12, prompting about 100 WPW followers to ask “What happened to his adidas deal?” Whatever the story, the reality is that Stro’s relationship with adidas never seemed official and he’s gone to the Jordan 12s frequently. The Jordan 12 cleats that Stroman wore in his Citi Field debut have a mint green base that has nothing to do with the Mets (or Blue Jays for that matter).
I know people like to see uniqueness in cleats, but when they have absolutely nothing to do with the team, its hard for me to like them. The Mets have such an incredible color scheme, why ignore it like this?
Do team colors matter?
