In recent years, there has been a rise in the amount of MLB players bringing heat to the baseball field. With the custom shoe services of today, you can now make about any shoe into a baseball cleat; all it takes is modifying the outsole to hard plastic fitted with spikes. This is what some of these athletes have been doing and that number will only continue to increase. Jordan brand is also endorsing more MLB players and fitting them with custom made cleats. From retro Jordan’s to Nike Basketball signatures, here are our favorite hardwood classics that have been brought to the diamond.

The legacy of Stuart Scott can never be diminished. Throughout his tenure at ESPN he pushed the envelope for a typical sports broadcaster. He brought a hip-hop swag and flair to the table, tying in cultural icons and music artists into the conversation. Scott made the show fun. He expressed his own opinions and made jokes which allowed his commentary to be much more personable. He began small, working nights at ESPN 2, but then got his shot on the main ESPN channel and never looked back. He was the number one option for hosting big events such as Monday Night Football and the NBA Finals.

With his signature catch phrases along with his glowing charisma and persona, he always was “as cool as the other side of the pillow.” Here are our favorite moments of the late and great, Stuart Scott. Boo-Yah!

Aaliyah Album Cover 2001

Aaliyah was a breathe of fresh air in more ways than one. Alongside of being a singer, dancer, actress and model, she was soft spoken, humble and true to herself.  In light of her 2001 self-titled album, “Aaliyah” releasing 15 years ago, we wanted to highlight the things we’ll never forget about her. She came a long way from the Star Search stage when she was 10 years old and it seemed nothing would stand in her way in 2001. With an album, two movies and unapologetic style, Aaliyah was that somebody everyone wanted to know.


Throwing it back to 1990, Jordan brand is set to release the remastered original Air Jordan 5. The shoe will remain true to form as it will come dressed in a Black, Fire Red, Metallic Silver, and White color scheme. The shoe features an all-black nubuck upper and metallic colored tongue comes in 3M to make the shoe pop. Branding comes by way of the Jumpman on the tongue and outsole, and the ‘Nike Air’ on the heel of the shoe to give it that OG look. Additional features on the shoe include the lace locks, the clear icy outsole. Jordan fans have long anticipated this release and will finally get the chance to get their hands on a pair this July.


The Air Jordan 5 ‘Metallic’ OG will release on 7/23 at 10AM EST in store or online at finishline.com
