Nike Baseball 2013 “Red Apple” and “Bright Lights, Big City” Collections
As Major League Baseball’s 2013 All-Star festivities get underway at Queens’ Citi Field – home of the New York Mets – Nike unveils its “Red Apple” and “Bright Lights, Big City” collections. Inspired by the excitement of New York City, the two collections pay homage to the Five Boroughs in distinctly different ways. While the “Red Apple” collection comes inspired by the Mets’ “Big Apple” that rises above the center field wall with each home run, the “Bright Lights, Big City” collection draws upon Manhattan’s Times Square for a range of takes on the Air Huarache Pro Metal – Nike’s latest flagship baseball cleat – that sport lenticular, color-shifting Swoosh branding and matching cleat plates. Look for the bold “Red Apple” collection – featuring the Nike Air Huarache Pro Metal Low and Mid, the Air Swingman MVP 2, and the Nike Free Trainer 5.0 – to make an on-field debut for tonight’s Home Run Derby while the “Bright Lights, Big City” Huaraches will appear on-field exclusively for this Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game.
