After the Giants represented at last night’s MLB All-Star game, I figured I’d celebrate by wearing one of my favorite baseball inspired sneakers. These were given to me by NDP when I worked for Sole Collector. Originally made for friends and family and the players voted on to the team, I’m incredibly lucky to have a pair. Especially considering the San Francisco Giants were coming off a World Series title and had a solid lineup of players on the squad, all under Giants skipper Bruce Bochy. Pablo Sandoval, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong and Brian Wilson were all on the team, which made these Nike Air Trainer 1.3 “Fastest Show on Dirt” that much more special for me.
The 3M detailing on the shoes is one of my favorite details. The two-color makeup stands out quite a bit on its own. It when you see the 3M liven up, it’s money. These are low-key in a lot of ways. I’ve worn them to sneaker events and had nobody notice them but the people that do, know their stuff.
