Under Armour will debut the new Spine Highlight Cleat tonight at the 2012 MLB All Star Game, a unique baseball offering that utilizes both a high-top Compfit upper and a cleated Spine sole unit.
The special All Star Game version of the Spine Highlight pays homage to Kansas City's Kaufmann Stadium, the site of the 83rd Midsummer Classic. The gold material, in addition to the "K" and crown prints on both cleats represent Kaufmann Stadium and the Kansas City Royals logo. The sockliner features a photo print of the Kaufmann Stadium fountains, while the tongue features the official All Star Game logo.
The UA team also created custom Spine RPM running shoes and Ignite II slides for its roster of participating players, which includes Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, Jonathan Paplebon, Matt Weiters, Fernando Rodney, Paul Konerko, Jim Johnson, Lance Lynn, Joel Hanrahan, Clayton Kershaw and Bryce Harper.
You can pick up the MLB All-Star Game Ignite II Slide for $30 at UnderArmour.com.
Check out the Spine Highlight on the field tonight. The 2012 MLB All Star Game starts at 8:15 PM ET.
