Anne Arundel County newborns are sporting new kicks thanks to Nike

The shoes are in honor of Matthew Centrowitz

Nothing looks better than a new pair of sneakers and thanks to Nike, some newborn babies in Anne Arundel County will be strollin' in style.

Every baby born Wednesday and Thursday in the Clantanoff Pavilion at Anne Arundel Medical Center will get their own new pair of Nike baby shoes.

It was all in honor of local Olympian Matt Centrowitz's rare gold medal win in the 2016 games in Rio de Janerio.

"These shoes represent the Olympics," said Betsy Lewis Snow of the Anne Arundel Medical Center. "All our babies are gold medal babies."

Centrowitz graduated from Broadneck High School and became the first American in 108 years to win a gold medal in the 1500-meter race at the Olympics.
