21-year-old Matt Manning is a baseball prospect for the Detroit Tigers and he’s a superfan of The Office. Sunday night he played in the MLB All-Star Futures Game and wore cleats inspired by the show. The shoes were designed by Long Island’s KD Custom Kicks with Dunder Mifflin employees: Michael Scott, Pam Beesley, Jim Halpert, Andy Bernard, Angela Martin, Dwight Schrute, and Kelly Kapoor. They’ve got a baby blue background with falling sheets of paper and the Nike swoosh on the side was designed to resemble a sheet of loose-leaf paper. Manning loves the show so much that last year he said that he watches the show before every game to calm down.

Matt Manning’s custom shoes made for the #FuturesGame.
Manning telling me he watches #TheOffice before every start to help him get rid of nerves. Started the tradition last season.
