Trout becomes second MLB star with Nike shoe deal
Mike Trout has had a heck of a start to his MLB career, and on Friday the two-time All-Star made his way into the history books again when he became the first MLB player since Ken Griffey Jr. to have his own signature Nike shoes.
"I basically gave them a shoe that I wore a couple of years ago and they wanted to mix it with new technology," Trout said on Friday. "It came out pretty good."
The shoes are pretty flashy, but Trout says he’s not worried about the colors clashing with the Angels’ red uniforms.
"I may bring the neons out every once in a while. It just adds a little spark."
The kicks are going for $140, so if it’s not in your budget, have no fear — the line also includes gear like batting gloves, wristbands and hats.
