Cincinnati's Red's Hall Of Fame member Marty Brennaman sits down with us to explain What Jackie Robinson did for the game of Baseball. April 15, 1947 was not your typical day at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, NY. During the first inning of a game against the Boston Braves, a man by the name of Jack Roosevelt Robinson took his spot at first base and in a single moment, changed the game of baseball forever. As he dug his cleats into the infield dirt for the first time that day in Brooklyn, Jackie shattered the sport's longstanding policy of not allowing African Americans to play professionally, now referred to as baseball's "color barrier." Being a black man in a white person's game, at a time in our nation where racism was nearly at its peak, Jackie would step onto hostile fields throughout his entire career. Balls were thrown at his head and slurs were thrown at this heart, but Jackie never lost focus. He stood in the batter's box and stared adversity directly in the face. Jackie swung more than just a bat that day. He swung the door open for African Americans to fulfill a dream that they were once denied. The opportunity to play at baseball's highest level. In celebration of the 75th anniversary of Jackie's major league debut, Unheardof presents the Nike Dunk Low "Jackie Robinson." Donning Dodgers inspired Racer Blue nubuck and Coconut tumbled leather in the Dunk's iconic "Be True to Your School" colorblocking, the upper features Jackie's number 42 at the heel and his famous quote: "I’m not concerned with your liking or disliking me… all I ask is that you respect me as a human being" subtly printed on its panels. A simple yet powerful message for human beings the world over. Other notable details include a special tongue tag denoting the 75th anniversary of Jackie's debut with the Dodgers, a two-tone embroidered Swoosh on the toebox, and two sets of laces including one done in baseball stitched motif. The Nike Dunk "Jackie Robinson" sits atop a White midsole with a Black rubber outsole. This is truly a collector's item for both baseball and shoe fans alike. Dropping July 19th at UNheardof.
