As we wish one of our clubs safe travels on their way to St. Louis this weekend, the MAVBBL can take the time to follow one of St Louis’s traditions and that is blacken your shoe out Weekend. As the MAVBBL strives to be as authentic as possible, one of the things a spectator will notice is that we wear modern cleats or spikes for safety reasons. One thing we all can do though with our black shoes is to darken out any logos that may appear on the shoe. Just take 5 seconds to erase the modern logo off of your shoe and go out there and have fun. Most clubs are in the middle of festivals over the next 2 months. Each player wants to put their best foot forward and try to look as authentic as possible. On a related note, best of luck and safe travels to the Brandywine Club as they head out to St Louis for a festival out there!
