Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier on April 15th, 1947 and professional sports haven’t been the same since. To celebrate all of the historic achievements both on and off the baseball diamond to coincide with the 70th anniversary of that legendary first game, adidas has created a special edition version of the adizero Afterburner cleat and the adidas Icon Turf Trainer. They also announced the building of a new field at Robinson’s alma mater, John Muir High School in Pasadena, California using actual bricks from the Dodgers’ old home in Brooklyn – Ebbets Field. Each pair features premium suede and leather accents with highlights of Jackie Robinson’s signature, his league-wide retired number 42, bronze colors in honor of the bricks at Brooklyn’s historic Ebbets Field, and unique statistical achievements during his career imprinted throughout. Each pair is available today with prices ranging from $100 – $120 USD on adidas.com.
