Spring Training is around the corner and Nike has dedicated a baseball themed Air Max 97 for the occasion.
All the MLB teams will be preparing for the 2020 season in about a month or so as Spring Training will be officially underway. Divided into half, teams either head to Florida or Arizona and have a full schedule of games and practices to get their bodies and minds back into the baseball spirit. For MLB players, the Spring is used to get them back into the swing of things while for rookies or prospects, it get’s them the chance to prove themselves to MLB executives for a shot at playing in the big leagues.
We don’t have too many details to give regarding the release but one can expect that this edition is dedicated to the Arizona Cactus League with the desert themed colors of red, orange, and yellow. While the base is kept black, orange and yellow overlays are placed perfectly in a wave-like fashion while red covers the mudguard. A white Nike Swoosh, pinstriped heel tab and baseball diamond branded insoles along with 3M detailing finish off the design.
Take an official look below and when we get more news regarding the sneaker or a potential Florida Grapefruit league iteration, JustFreshKicks has you covered so stay tuned.
