Ahead of this year’s MLB All-Star Game, adidas Baseball is getting in on the action with a celebratory pack. Consisting of the Icon Trainer, adizero Afterburner cleats and Icon cleats, the “Nations Pack” reimagines the three silhouettes with a patchwork upper that blends the 18 flags of each adidas Baseball athlete’s home country, ranging from Venezuela to South Korea to the Netherlands.

The result is a multicolored jacquard pattern that mimics the weave of an actual flag, with the right shoe different from the left shoe. Red and blue sockliner branding add a patriotic touch to the shoes, which sport white detailing everywhere else to balance the intricately-patterned uppers.

Look for the pack to hit adidas’s website shortly.

Elsewhere, DTLR and Villa introduced a New Balance 990 to commemorate the 2018 All-Star Game.
