To support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Major League Soccer stars Fredy Montero (Seattle Sounders), Darlington Nagbe (Portland Timbers), Kenny Cooper (New York Red Bulls), Chris Pontius (DC United) and Teal Bunbury (Sporting KC) have created special adidas pink cleats to be worn throughout October.

"I wanted to make something fun and exciting and that definitely looked good. Mainly though, I wanted to show my continued support of Breast Cancer Awareness having that a family member was recently diagnosed with breast cancer," Bunbury said in a statement. "Having the ability to design my own cleat gave me the freedom to express my passion for the game."
