MINNEAPOLIS — If you watched Mike Trout in Tuesday night's All-Star Game and thought he looked like he was wearing a pair of brightly-colored fish on his feet, you shouldn't have been alarmed.

They're supposed to look that way:

The pair comes from Trout and Nike's "Lunar Vapor Trout" line, which was unveiled last month and is Nike's first signature shoe for a baseball player since Ken Griffey Jr. in the '90s. We actually kind of dig this version a bit better. Not only is it a cool sartorial reflection on Trout's last name, it also fits the theater of the All-Star Game. Where better to find a rainbow trout than the Land of 10,000 Lakes?

And, hey, they certainly did their job on the field. Trout legged out a first-inning triple to score Derek Jeter and give the American League an early lead. 

No word on if these will be available at retail like the original version (which costs $140). With the shoes, Trout joins guys like Bryce Harper (2012) and Brian Wilson (2010) who have made headlines with their All-Star footwear.  

Update: You can buy these fish for your feet! They'll set you back a cool $150 on Nike.com
