The latest Nike Zoom Trout 3 cleat will become available on July 1 (increasingly an excellent day for sneakers, tons of stuff is releasing). Nike has, of course, not announced a price yet but stay tuned because the shoe debuts soon. Here’s all the information on it so far from Nike.
At 6 feet 3 inches, 200 pounds, baseball star Mike Trout needs a cleat that can propel him around the bases and harness his power at the plate. The Nike Zoom Trout 3 does both, and more. Here’s how.
IT CONTAINS THE FOOT
Whether rounding the bases or tracking a fly ball, Trout relies on his cleat to keep him in control. The heel bucket and TPU unit wrap the heel, preventing it from sliding. The upper features engineered mesh and Nike Flywire that stretches vertically to lock in the foot over the plate.
IT ACTS LIKE A LAUNCH PAD
A nine-cleat configuration digs into the dirt to give Trout firm footing from which to take his famously quick first step and swiftly hit full speed to reach base or track a deep ball. Geometric divots on the outsole help prevent dirt from clinging to the plate, helping minimize any drag in motion.
IT’S GOT COMFORT THAT WORKS WITH YOU
The Zoom Trout 3 cushioning system introduces visible Zoom Air to the Trout line for the first time. Units in the forefoot and heel deliverer a responsive, low-profile ride — all the better for stealing 3rd or leaping to snag a would-be-homer.
