Just yesterday we found out that reigning MLB American League Rookie Of The Year Carlos Correa joined the adidas family. Today was officially Opening Day for Carlos and the Astros as they faced off against the New York Yankees.
Correa wasted no time showing off his adidas pride as he wore a custom 1-of-1 adidas Boost Icon 1 cleat created by adidas Baseball. The cleats (pictured above) represent the fusion of Carlos’ family, his Astros family and joining the adidas family.
Correa?s family artwork includes influences from Correa?s family, heritage, his background, etc. ? including: Ponce, Puerto Rico; living by the water, fishing as a family, swimming with dolphins, Carlos Sr.?s work ethic, etc.
The Astros family artwork includes Texas, the Houston Astros, the Houston Astrodome, baseball design cues and living baseball 24/7. Lastly, the adidas family artwork includes the adidas Superstar and adidas NMD shoes, the hashtag #cleathead ? which is bringing the sneakerhead mentality to baseball cleats, and three fingers up to represent living the adidas ?three stripe life.”
Take a look at the custom cleat above and let us know what you think. For anyone interested, Correa helped the Astros open the season with a 5-3 victory and also hit a home run in the sixth inning.
