The Union and Troy Cole, also known as Kickasso, are certainly no strangers when it comes to partnerships.
The two came together for the first-of-its-kind cleat collaboration for the team's Pediatric Cancer Awareness Night. The Union teamed up with 15 children affected by childhood cancer, and together, they created custom boots on paper.
Kickasso brought the cleats to life, and unveiled them at a special event in late August. The cleats that he brought to life will be worn during warm-ups for the Union's match against Chicago Fire on September 23.
In addition to the cleats, there will also be exclusive merch for fans to purchase in a collaboration between the Union and Kickasso. The "savage" shirts will be on sale at the Union shop, and a portion of the proceeds will go toward the non-profit Alex's Lemonade Stand, a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer.
Fans unable to purchase a shirt at the match will be able to buy one on Kickasso's website, which will be made available following the match.
