In celebration of Jackie Robinson Day, Sneaker Report takes a look back at some of the most memorable performance Nike sneakers inspired by the Major League Baseball legend. There have been a couple homages to Jackie on Nike's lifestyle models, such as the Blazer and Air Force 1, but surprisingly there haven't been many on-field tributes. Robinson's biopic, 42, is in theaters now, but unfortunately most of these sneakers disappeared from retail shelves long ago.
