With the 2016 U.S. Open kicking off at Oakmont Country Club next week, expect so see a lot of Pittsburgh-inspired gear. The city's black-and-gold color scheme, as well its many bridges, make it an obvious choice for some cool Open looks.

We have a peek at what adidas Golf will be offering starting June 8 on in a limited edition collection.

The collection, which plays off the color scheme of the city's major pro sports teams and the numerous bridges to get over the three major rivers dividing the city, includes a t-shirt ($30), hat ($25), socks ($18) and the a special version of adidas' Tour360 Boa Boost shoes ($250). The shoes have cable graphics on the saddle and bottom of the shoe, a bridge on the heel and other nods to the city's architecture.


The shoes come with a footwear bag which is embossed with the names of all 446 of Pittsburgh's bridges.

It's not clear which adidas staffers might wear the special shoes next week, but we'll learn more when scripting is announced.
