Mike Trout has trout-themed Nike cleats for the All-Star Game

The hook is that they should be excellent for scaling walls and fishing back home runs.

Mike Trout shares a last name with a fish. Nike, aware of this, decided to do something clever.

You can buy your own! Just $150. I'll take four pairs. Or, you can give me one pair for free, Nike, in exchange for these free marketing ideas:

  • Super fuzzy, patchouli-scented Brandon Moss cleats
  • Drew Stubbs cleats with one toe sticking out precariously
  • Limited-edition brown Bartolo Colon/Albert Pujols cleats (in honor of the color of the dirt around home plate and the pitcher's mound)
  • A.J. Pollock cleats that are like Trout's, but with a pollock theme
  • Anthony Bass cleats that are like Trout's, but with a bass theme
  • Mike Carp cleats that are like Trout's, but with a carp theme

Again, those are free. In exchange for the cool shoes. Think it over.

(Those are neat cleats.)
