We’ve hit the midway point of the 2014 Major League Baseball season, which means that it is now time to get the All-Star Game festivities kicked off.
The All-Star break is always a time for the players to kick back and enjoy a bit of a vacation of sorts. It also gives them an opportunity to show off their flashy personalities a bit, and that’s exactly what Seattle Mariners’ second baseman Robinson Cano is doing as he has stepped his shoe game up a bit for the All-Star Game in Minnesota.
Look in the photo below as Cano shows off his special All-Star edition Nike cleats, that are plastered with his initials, as well as the American League logo.

Now those cleats actually aren’t too bad, although if you look quickly, it almost looks in a way as if someone colored the shoes with a crayon.
Cano will be making his first appearance as an All-Star with the Mariners after showing up to the game multiple times throughout his career as a member of the New York Yankees. This past offseason, Cano signed a lucrative multi-year deal with the Mariners of the American League.
