Do real men wear pink?

Nike Pink CleatNovember 18, 2008 – The latest shock tactic in sports gear has been unveiled by Nike: the pink soccer cleat – for men!

So what guy is brave enough to put in a shocking pink performance? A guy very sure of himself – who’s fast as a whippet and capable of scoring a hat-trick every game. Or is the pink thing for guys not a big deal anymore? I feel like the shock value may be passe.

See what reaction the cleats have caused among Europe’s finest male players — including Rio Ferdinand, Cesc Fabregas, Gabby Agbonlahor and Theo Walcott — in the latest Nike video viral.

The hue is technically called Mercurial Rosa but make no mistake, it’s pink. Don’t know how many guys will go for the cleats but I can think of more than a few girls who might check them out – they’re pretty cool!
