Mike Trout’s signature shoe now comes in … trout


Now you can have this on your feet! (The Bulletin, Mark Morical via Associated Press)

Mike Trout recently made sports-biz news by becoming the first MLB player since Ken Griffey Jr. to get his own Nike signature shoe.

Okay, pretty nice (and for about $140, they’d better be). But what if I’d prefer a different look?

Ah, yes, those do represent a variety of colors. But I dunno, I was still hoping to get something that says, “Not only do I want to play baseball in shoes endorsed by Mike Trout, I’d like to simultaneously honor the fish of the same name.”

Boom! Now that’s a shoe someone could get hooked on. Does it let you scale any height? Gill-ty as charged!

The Angels phenom himself is wearing these during tonight’s all-star game, which is, fittingly, in the state of Minnesota. You know, the Land of 10,000 Places to Possibly Catch a Trout (usually for a lot less than $140).

This former editor and part-time writer at The Post is now happy to prove that if you combine 'blowhard' and 'blaggard,' you get 'blogger.' He previously had used 'Desmond Bieler' as his byline, but feels that shortening the first name to 'Des' nicely conveys his ever-decreasing gravitas. He also covers Fantasy Football.
