In their first year as the Official Performance Footwear Supplier of Major League Baseball, Under Armour gears up for the 2011 MLB All-Star Game with a new collection of cleats, running shoes and slides for their players to wear for the festivities. With MLB adopting sky argyle print in tribute to the location of this year’s game, Arizona, Under Armour has incorporated similar graphic work into the cleats. Spun into the team colors of UA represented players, the Under Armour baseball cleats are white-based for the National League and grey-based for the American League.
The photo sets below are broken down into three groups. Group 1 consists of the Natural III Low, which features a Micro G midsole an UA 6-3 plate powered by Fang Spikes.
