Customs In Game can’t get much higher than this. Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane “Flyin’ Hawaiian” Victorino graced the first World Series clinching win at Fenway Park in 95 years with a pair of USA themed Nike Huarache cleats customized by Casey Custom Sneakers. The customization was the addition of a American flag motif fabric sewn to their upper to go with the shoes red, white, and blue accents.
Across Instagram there has been a slew of customizers being commissioned by the switch hitter for cleats and street shoes. In a sense Casey won the lottery as Victorino played in Game 6 after sitting out two games and helped clinched the series driving in 4 of the Sox’s 6 runs. Customs are currently the “it” thing in pro sports with each of the three major American leagues having a player sport customs in a game.
