It’s hard to take a guy seriously when his walk up music includes tunes from Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Justin Bieber, but when that guy is Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, you’ll learn to respect him one way or the other. Arguably the game’s best shortstop, Troy is coming off a season in which he led all shortstops in home runs, RBIs, batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage and on-base plus slugging percentage. He nabbed his first Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Awards in 2010 and is hoping to erase this season’s early struggles to land those same awards again this year.

One of the many Nike Player Exclusives Tulo has worn throughout the season, here’s a closer look at his custom Shox Fuse 2. The cleat features a black and metallic silver synthetic upper with Rockies purple detailing on the forefoot, Swoosh logos, contrast stitching and inner liner. For personalization, ’2Low’ is embroidered in black and purple on the tongue, while Troy’s number ’2′ is stitched in white on the heel. The bottom is completed with purple Shox columns for responsive cushioning and a white v9 outsole.

Enjoy a closer look at Troy Tulowitzki’s Nike Shox Fuse 2 PE below. You can pick up non-PE colorways of this model at Eastbay today.
