Father’s Day is this Sunday (hopefully you remebered), and it’s always a big day in the sporting world. Just about every major sport has an event going on over this weekend, but baseball has always been synonymous with the holiday as many players and teams celebrate at the field. This year, Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino will hit the field wearing something special to celebrate the day.
The longtime Nike athlete will lace up some custom Air Huarache Pro Mid cleats with some very special and personal touches added in. The cleat comes in an all blue look, with paint speckle throughout the forefront, and a baseball stitching graphic extending around the shoe. Of course, the cleat features his signature #18 along the mid panel, but the best part of the shoe is along the medial side, where there’s a graphic of Victorino walking hand in hand with his kids, a common tradition during MLB games on Father’s Day.
Check out the cleats in detail below, and keep an eye out for Victorino and the Red Sox this Sunday as they face off against the Indians at 1:35pm EST.
