Tonight baseball’s biggest stars will duke it out in the name of league pride for the fans. Most fans will be wearing jerseys to support their favorite players and teams but that’s something that is best left to the players. Instead, opt for a more stylish option, like a classic pair of boat shoes customized for team pride. Step up to the plate and prepare to knock it out of the park with the Fastballs by Allen Edmonds ($115).
While Allen Edmonds has three other MLB-inspired boat shoes to consider (the black and red First Baseman, the tan Shortstop and the dark brown Center Fielder) the Fastball is my pick for the best of the bunch. The white leather combined with the red stitching gives the perfect impression that Allen Edmonds has manipulated a baseball into a superb fitting boat shoe. That fit comes from the shoe being manufactured on the rounder, fuller toe Handsewn 2592 Last. If you want to show a little team spirit, the shoes can be customized to subtly add your favorite team’s logo near the laces for an additional $10. Next time you head to the ball park to enjoy a game this summer, make sure you’re wearing a pair of these. It’s a more grown up way of supporting your favorite team.
