The most legendary team in baseball can arguably be none other then the New York Yankees. Throughout the years of the organization some of the leagues most well known athelets have emerged from the Yankees, players such as Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Whitey Ford, Thurman Munson, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Reggie Jackson and many more. Not to mention the team has won an amazing 15 American League East Division Championships, 39 American League Championships, and 26 World Series Championships.
In honor of the achievements the Yankees have made and the legendary players who once called the Bronx home Nike has designed this special New York Yankees Air Trainer 1. The sneakers feature your usual Yankees color scheme of navy blue and white. The heel and tongue tag of the left sneakers consists of the word New while the right heel and tongue tag have York printed on them. The Yankees logo is included on the backside of the tongue tag on the left sneaker with the backside of the right tongue tag having a quote from Joe DiMaggio. Wrapping up the sneakers is a pair of specially designed insoles. The right insoles says New York Yankees on it and the left insole has the retired numbers on the Yankees along with the NY logo.
Unfortunately, to our understanding, the New York Yankees Air Trainer 1 will not be released to the public and has just been given to the players on the Yankees are well as close friends of the Nike heads. Via: TSG
