Each and every April 15th, the sports worlds honors a legend. That legend changed the course of history forever as he represented an ideal that would shift the landscape of sports as well as humanity for eternity. That legend is Jackie Robinson. With Major League Baseball honoring the iconic figure by having each of their players sport the number 42 throughout the course of games today, adidas is helping Robinson’s alma matter get in on the commemoration as well by unveiling special Jackie Robinson day uniforms and cleats.

Featuring cream and navy style threads with 3/4 cut sleeves and knicker-boxer styled pants, the Bruins are paying direct homage to Robinson’s era in Westwood. In addition, the aforementioned adidas Energy Boost Icon Cleat features stellar imagery throughout the silhouette that incorporates 1940’s UCLA logos and graphics along with fusing together a rich leather upper and wool detailed fabrics. This model also utilizes adidas’ Energy Boost midsole for added performance functionality.

Check out the UCLA Bruins tomorrow night as they take on Pac-12 rival, Cal, in a matchup that should be very exciting. To see more from the commemorative collection, view the official images below and let us know your thoughts on UCLA’s Jackie Robinson Day gear.
