Nike To Produce Jackie Robinson Tribute Shoes

Shoe and apparel giant Nike is celebrating Jackie Robinson Day today with Major League Baseball by having some of its top endorsers, including Ken Griffey Jr., Jimmy Rollins and David Wright, wear Robinson-inspired shoes.

The shoes feature an engraving of the iconic image of Robinson sliding into home and also have his number (42) stitched on each heel. The shoe below is a version of Ken Griffey Jr.'s signature "Swingman" product.

A non-cleated version will hit shelves on May 1.
