New Balance 4040v5

Baseball is a game of ever-changing strategy, and the new era of ballplayers is constantly adapting to the evolution of America’s pastime. So, when you step onto the diamond, you need a versatile cleat for this versatile game. The fifth version of New Balance’s popular 4040 cleat offers a new Kinetic Stitch upper, strategically placed in high-stress zones to support the foot with stronger material that doesn’t compromise flexibility. New Balance tested the cleat using a variety of baseball movements that included balance while batting, stability while planting during a pitch, and accelerating while running the bases. Plus, when All-Stars like DJ LeMahieu and Jorge Polanco consistently rock the 4040 line, you know it’s a legit cleat built for all-around players. After browsing our large selection of team colors, make sure to check out the new All-Star colorway, available at eastbay.com.

Nike Force Zoom Trout 6

Personalized Mike Trout features include: Cleat plate mapped to Trout’s foot and 865 area code on the heel to pay homage to Trout’s hometown

Smacking dingers, driving the gaps, blazing the base paths, and making plays in the field. Is there anything the overall leader in All-Star fan voting, Mike Trout, can’t do? The short answer is no, and it’s only fitting that the newest version of Trout’s signature cleat is designed to help you do it all, too. The Nike Force Zoom Trout 6 features Flyweave construction that conforms to your foot, providing the ultimate lightweight support. Nike also used a data-generated design from the two-time AL MVP’s foot to pinpoint where to reinforce the bottom plate, providing exceptional traction. Finally, the sixth version of this cleat has a large strap across the lacing that keeps your foot locked down during intense movements.

adidas adiZERO Afterburner 6

All Star Afterburner

If speed is the name of your game, then the Afterburner 6 is the perfect choice for you. The tongueless bootie construction feels like a natural extension of your foot, while the widened anatomical lacing system delivers a custom, locked-down fit. These cleats were specifically designed to allow for quick, multidirectional movement when turning that single into a double or chasing down a ball in the gap. So, it’s no surprise that All-Star starters, Alex Bregman and Ketel Marte, sport the newest Afterburners while tearing up the diamond. Don’t forget to visit eastbay.com for the brand new “Iced Out” colorway.

adidas Icon V Boost

There’s a reason that Kris Bryant is one of the best young players in baseball today. It’s because he works tirelessly day after day to perfect his game – down to the smallest detail. So it’s only fair that adidas put in the same effort when designing the newest Icon Boost cleat, worn by the superstar slugger. The Icon V Boosts feature a full-length BOOST midsole that provides game-changing comfort while easing the pressure felt from metal spikes. These cleats also include a brand new fit system that uses flexible elastic bands for an easy on/off and a back-lacing configuration for a locked-down feel. The Icon V Boosts are also available in the new “Iced Out” colorway, in addition to a large selection of team colors.
