Nike-Sponsored Baseball Players to Wear Pink on Mother’s Day

To celebrate Mother’s Day, Nike will have its sponsored baseball players on the field Sunday wearing pink.

The sneaker brand made player’s editions of three baseball cleat models – the Lunar Vapor Trout, MVP Elite and MVP Pro – adorned in pink for the occasion.

Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout is scheduled to take the field on Mother’s Day, as the west coast team will host the American League best Houston Astros. The Lunar Vapor Trout, the outfielder’s signature shoe, was built with the brand’s Flywire technology, a four-way stretch mesh inner sleeve, Lunarlon foam midsole, and a split Pebax speed plate, to handle his speed on the bases and chasing balls in center field.

For the baseball player or collector looking to grab a pair of the Mother’s Day edition baseball cleats, these colorways won’t be available in stores. However, other colorways of the three models are available now.
