Mike Trout Becomes Second MLB Star To Release Shoes From Nike
Nike emphasized that the cleat is more for performance than looks. It’s lightweight and “designed for the directional speed needed to steal more bases, get to more balls in the outfield, and get out of the batter’s box quickly.” The line of Trout merchandise also includes batting gloves, wristbands and baseball caps. The cleats will be in stores July 12 but are available for presale at Nike.com Friday. Having a major league salary helps if you want a pair, as they cost $140.
