adidas Creates Special Edition Cleats & Icon Turf Trainer to Honor Jackie Robinson
Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. adidas Employees Build New #baseball & Softball Field at Robinson’s High School Alma Mater
To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Jackie Robinson™ breaking baseball’s color barrier on April 15, 1947, #adidas
today unveiled a special edition #baseball
cleat and turf trainer and announced a new field at Robinson’s alma mater, John Muir High School in Pasadena, Calif., to celebrate #jackierobinson
Day on April 15.2017 Special Edition Jackie Robinson™ adizero Afterburner
With a cream colored premium suede version of the 2017 adizero Afterburner as a blank canvas, the cleat’s design is centered around Robinson’s signature, which is highlighted in gold foil above a 70th anniversary gold embroidered stencil commemorating the historic date he started in the majors. The old school numeric stencil is inspired by Robinson’s gym bag that displayed his universally retired uniform number (42).
Accenting the cream base color, the bronze color pallet reflects the bricks from Brooklyn’s legendary Ebbets Field, where Robinson started and finished his #baseball
career, and the ballpark’s façade is highlighted on the heel of the cleat. Additionally, the bronze plate of the cleat was inspired by Robinson’s Hall of Fame bust. Further encapsulating some moments in time, adidas’ iconic three stripes are stitched in brown and black tweed to pay homage to the tweed suit jacket Robinson wore the day he retired from the game and Robinson’s stats are stamped into the heel pulltabs (BA .311 | R 947 | H 1518 | SB 197 | RBI 734 | HR 137).
