Basketball superstars sporting souped-up versions of their signature sneakers has pretty much become an NBA's All-Star Weekend tradition (one that's way more exciting than the eventformerlyknownastheSlamDunkContest, imo).
But if three of Major League Soccer's big-time players have their way, customized kicks will soon become a major part of MLS' All-Star festivities as well.
Javier Morales of Real Salt Lake, Juan Pablo Angel of the New York Red Bulls and Omar Gonzalez of the LA Galaxy will each be wearing modified models of their Adidas soccer boots during the 2010 MLS All-Star game, which takes place tomorrow night in Houston. The boots will boast all-new colorways, as well as the initials and numbers for each player...
But what's really cool is that the boots were created using miadidas, Adidas' online sneaker-maker. That means you don't even have to wait/wonder if these will hit retail stores. If you like them, you can just visit miadidas.com and create a pair for yourself!
