I’m going off the grid for the holiday (wish I had a game instead) but I couldn’t leave you without a little sneak peek at what Memorial Day will look like on the diamond. We got some great looks at the special Memorial Day Nike Huarache Pro courtesy of @NikeBaseball, and paired with the USMC jerseys, the boys better watch their butts this weekend.
To celebrate the military men and women who have died for our freedom, Nike has added a little camo to the Huaraches worn by so many Big Leaguers in the game today. These will go very nicely with the special uni’s to be worn this year (like the Royals powder blues below).
I’m skeptical of the gratuitous use of camo lately, but if you throw baby blues at me I’m pretty much helpless. If Alex Gordon doesn’t go 4 for 4 with a pair of jacks in this get-up then he’s got no one to blame but himself. There’s just too much swagger baked into the uni/cleat combo not to.
And don’t even get me started with Trout in the reds with the red Show X1s!!!
You can shop both the USMC hats and jerseys here. Nike’s camo Huarache’s are exclusive to the Big boys but you can create your own on NIKEiD. Have a great weekend and don’t forget how lucky you are to have two arms, two legs and the freedom to play the greatest game in the world.
