The sneaker store, which had been converted into a gallery space celebrating the Galaxy's new 2016 kit, featured 10 large prints showcasing Galaxy players posing in their home neighborhood, with photography captured by Robert Mora, Jon Lorentz and Hana Asano.

“You see photos of Robbie Keane in Downtown LA, Landon Donovan in Manhattan Beach, and myself in Redondo Beach. [The photos] show that we’re all over the county and all over Los Angeles,” DeLaGarza told
