I’m finally back after a two week vacation in Costa Rica. I had an amazing time but I’m sorry to have gone radio silence on WPW. Not really optimal and we’ll work on that.
Just in time for the Derby tonight, I wanted to drop a few special edition posts, starting with these adidas adiZero Afterburner 2 “Flying Pigs” edition (available at that link in limited quantities).
Taking inspiration from this year’s host city, the new All-Star cleat pays homage to Cincinnati and its heritage. Incorporated as a city in 1819, Cincinnati quickly became the pork capital of the Midwest and has since established a legacy of both flying and dancing pigs. Some even refer to the city as “Porkopolis.”
The cleats also feature a mustache on the laces as an homage to Reds mascot Mr. Redlegs.
Expect to see these (or the Energy Boost Icon below) on Kris Bryant, Justin Upton, and Dellin Betances. You can get the Afterburners here.
The ASG Energy Boost Icon features the same “Flying Pig” design (complete with curly tail) and is also available in limited quantities at adidas.com.
Though the stylized images don’t show it, adidas’ product photos show how iridescent these are and offer up a better look at those Flying Pigs:
Get these here.
Plenty more content on the way today.
