The offseason is rounding third and we’re all feeling ready to hit the diamond. While you’re finishing up a winter of indoor training, start learning about all the latest products and building your gear rack for the new season.

Cleats

Built For Speed

adidas Afterburner 4.0

adidas adiZero Afterburner 4: All hail the speed king of the diamond. This cleat is designed for one purpose: to get you to the next base as fast as possible. Weighing in at just 9.4 oz, it won’t matter if you’re charging for a stand-up double or chasing down a ball in the gap, the Afterburner will get you there. Fast. Available in stunning colorways like the Gold Pack and Dipped Pack, you’ll definitely stand out in the adiZero Afterburner 4 — that is, if they even see you coming.

New Balance 4040v4

New Balance 4040v4: If you play baseball, you’ve heard of these popular cleats from New Balance. From the spikes to the tongue, the 4040v4 is one of the most thoughtfully designed shoes in the game. For performance at speeds, these cleats feature a supportive yet lightweight outsole plate. This plate flexes at key bend points so you get maximum dig from metal spikes. A convenient lace cage adds the finishing touch to a streamlined upper by keeping the laces secured and out of the way.

 

Built For Comfort

Nike Huarache Cleats

Nike Alpha Huarache Elite: We’ll start this list with a legend. From top to bottom, this cleat is built for the much-needed comfort of a long season. The internal bootie and ankle locking system hug the foot with a supportive fit, and a full-length Air Max unit in the midsole creates the perfect buffer between your foot and the spikes. Choose the Alpha Huarache Elite in one of its sleek new colorways and link up your look with the Huarache Elite Gloves.

New Balance COMPv1

New Balance CompV1: Ready to embrace change? The New Balance CompV1 is the most innovative baseball cleat system this season and it’s here to take the field by force. The key, new feature is the spike – each one is a glass-fiber tack surrounded by TPU. The hardness of the glass-fiber allows this cleat to punch through dirt with the effectiveness of metal while the TPU delivers the comfort of a molded system. This makes the CompV1 the perfect choice for players who live in their cleats day in and day out, on any surface and in all conditions. Read all about this impressive new cleat in our featured blog here.

adida Energy Boost

adidas Boost Icon 3: It’s right in the name – these innovative cleats house the power of boost from heel to toe. This responsive cushioning system is the perfect solution to cleat pressure felt from metal spikes. But the tech goes beyond the boost. The Icon 3’s sock-like upper hugs your foot for a natural fit while the spike layout gives you perfect traction. Plus, the classy look makes your diamond presence gold-status.
