The 2022 MLB season has been nothing short of amazing from start to finish. Unfortunately, all good things must end. The Houston Astros defeated the Houston Astros in six games to win their first World Series since 2017.
As always, we focus on what players have under their feet. Ahead of Saturday night’s game, the Phillies’ social media team shared a photo of Bryce Harper walking onto the court at Minute Maid Park.
Harper has been an Under Armor athlete since 2011. In 2016, Harper signed a ten-year extension, which was the largest sponsorship deal in history for a baseball player. Since then, Under Armor has released iconic shoes and cleats as part of the Harper collection.
However, Harper was not wearing Under Armor shoes until Game 6 of the World Series. Instead, the 7x MLB All-Star wore a rare pair of Air Jordan sneakers. It’s important to note that we don’t know the details of Harper’s contract with Under Armour.
Harper may well be within his rights to wear shoes from competing companies when he’s not on the court. Below is what fans need to know about Harper’s kicks.
Fragment x Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low
Harper wore the Fragment x Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low. The low tops released in August 2021 for $150. The shoes sold out immediately and now have an average resale price of $1,519, according to StockX.

The Air Jordan 1 (and its low-top counterpart) has been around since the mid-1980s. The classic silhouette has been reimagined in countless colorways. This colorway was designed in collaboration with rapper Travis Scott and Fragment.
In Game 6 of the World Series, Harper wore his Under Armor cleats as he always has before. Thursday we discussed the UA Harper 7 Low ST. Fans can choose from multiple colorways of low cut cleats and shop the entire Harper collection on the Under Armor website.
The partnership between Harper and Under Armor has been successful. Seeing the signature Under Armor athlete wearing Air Jordans is most likely a sign of the times. Stay locked in FanNationKicks.com for news, highlights and interviews.
