Let's say you're a fan of an MLS team — obviously. You love your team, thus naturally hate your team's biggest rival.
When said rival rolls into town — or you enter into enemy territory — for that much anticipated showdown, you've probably got that one special piece of your outfit that you wouldn't dare be caught without.
Maybe it's the jersey you wore last time the two teams played, and your side got the dramatic late winner. Or, perhaps it's an article of clothing with a not so savory message directed at that particular team. Whatever it is, it has special meaning to you.
When the New York Red Bulls and D.C. United take the field at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday night (8 pm ET, ESPN2), fans of the two Eastern Conference teams will almost certainly be outfitted in attire like that described above.
But on this night, the players will be sporting something a little special for the rivalry game as well.
Using adidas's miadidas.com customization tool, adidas has created a limited edition set of NitroCharge, Predator, adizero F50 and 11Pro cleats for this particular I-95 Corridor Cup matchup.
Several players will sport the customized cleats, including DC’s Perry Kitchen and Bill Hamid in the Predator and adizero F50, respectively, as well as and New York’s Dax McCarty and Jamison Olave in the Predator and NitroCharge, respectively.
