Wednesday, July 11th will be the slowest day of the sports year, as not a single top-tier professional game will played. Football’s gearing up to dominate the fall, basketball just wrapped up its biggest championship with an Olympic gold to be decided in weeks, and Major League Baseball will finally take a breather after the Midsummer Classic. But today is kind of like the storm before the storm, because while Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Kansas City decides home-field advantage in the World Series, there will be just as much attention on the recently renovated Kauffman Stadium during tonight’s Home Run Derby. Nike Baseball is ready with their typically impeccable timing, bringing forth a pack of cleats along with one special edition pair done similarly to one of the Training division’s best. The Nike Lunar TR1 and Air Max MVP Elite 3/4 cleat represent the best pre- and intra-game footwear choices for the best baseball players on the planet, and these special colorways are available now from select retailers including NikeStore.
