adidas Honors Dads with Special Edition Father’s Day Cleats

adidas adizero Afterburner Fathers Day 01

adidas Baseball today unveiled the limited edition adizero Afterburner Father’s Day cleat to honor and celebrate dads across the globe
 
Inspired by the “dad jeans” fashion statement, the special edition Father’s Day cleat is dipped in soft, baby blue and highlighted with denim striping details. Brown jean stitching accents the light blue SPRINTSKIN upper, while Nubuck details on the tongue and pulltab complete the look. 
 
The 2017 adizero Afterburner, the lightest cleat in the game, is engineered with a seamless SPRINTSKIN upper with zoned support. A reinforced abrasion toecap enables lateral movements and sprints between the bases. Sculpted to be aerodynamic and wrap around the foot to provide a sock-like feel, the new TECHFIT breathable, compression bootie allows for flexibility and movement through the ankle. And an articulated heel provides a lockdown sensation that makes the cleat feel like an extension of the foot for multidirectional movement and control.
 
The blue jean inspired upper sits atop a full-length LITESTRIKE EVA midsole for increased cushioning and comfort. The Father’s Day cleats are powered by a matte blue plate with PROTRAX cleat configuration that provides dynamic acceleration and traction.

 

The perfect gift for the father who has everything, over 100 #teamadidas baseball players will don the cleats this weekend to honor their fathers.​


The 2017 adizero Afterburner Father’s Day cleats will be available starting today for $110 exclusively at adidas.com. For more information and images of the newest iteration of the adizero baseball cleat, please visit http://news.adidas.com/US and join the conversation on Twitter and Instagram via @adidasBaseball and https://www.facebook.com/adidasbaseball #cleathead​  #teamadidas​​.
