Ortiz will end his 19-year-career in style wearing four cleats inspired by the states the final four series will take place in for the 2016 season. The final walk off shoes will be inspired by the man himself, number 34.

The cleats Ortiz will wear during the games will correspond with special edition fashion shoes available for purchase during the series. 

This image gallery shows the limited edition shoes, which will be available on NewBalance.com. The “Final Walk” shoes will be sold exclusively at the company's Boston store.

New Balance will also release a limited edition “Walk off 34” T-shirt available online and in stores.
