Baseball is America’s game and the Mariners are Seattle’s team. The latter was in jeopardy during the 1995 season. A history of losing records and rumors of relocation clouded the future of a franchise with so much fresh talent. On October 8th, 1995, Edgar Martinez changed the trajectory of the team by hitting a double in the bottom of the eleventh inning in Game 5 of the ALDS. Sending in Joey Kora and Ken Griffey Jr. for the game tying and game winning runs, the Mariners knocked off the Yankees and saved their season and, perhaps, the franchise. Dave Niehaus’ famous call of the play still serves as a highlight almost as big as the play, with the famous “My Oh My!” catchphrase cementing the remarkable win in baseball and pop culture history. The historic hit and classic call are celebrated on the Made in the USA Nice Kicks x New Balance 574 “My Oh My!” Quickstrike.
A Pacific Green/Black-Charcoal colorway plays to the team colors, hitting it off on the US574 silo. Pig suede paneling provides the premium styling New Balance fans have come to expect, while classic mesh contrast stays true to the model’s running roots. 3M branding stays on point with the team themed colorway, adding flair and trademark flash. To celebrate the 18th anniversary of the historic play back in 1995, the Nice Kicks x New Balance 574 “My Oh My!” Quickstrike will release to the tune of 95 pairs exclusively at shopnicekicks.com on October 8th at 10 AM CDT.
