Spring and baseball are synonymous for many athletes. As the temperatures start to rise, the snow finally melts, and the grass starts to grow, one thing becomes clear—it’s time to step onto the diamond and play ball! The experts over at New Balance have crafted special baseball cleats and sneakers that pay homage to this special time of year with the ‘Coumarin Pack.’
So, just what is coumarin? It’s an organic chemical fragrance found in the freshly cut grass that litters the outfield. And it’s also a perfect name for two different colorways that signify the end of winter and the beginning of spring baseball.
The first colorway celebrates Arizona spring baseball with special versions of the 3000v3 cleat and 998 sneaker. The warm red and gold colors are perfect for those who play the game with a fiery passion while added dessert accents rep the Grand Canyon State in style.
For the coolest players on and off the diamond, the grey and jade, Florida-inspired colorway is the right choice. Styled after the Spring Grapefruit League, these 3000v3s and 997s have a level of Miami Vice-like swag that can only come from the Sunshine State.
If you want one of these special New Balance sneakers or cleats, you’d better hurry—they are limited edition and Eastbay is one of only a few places offering them. So snag your favorite cleat or sneaker and let us know in the comments which colorway you’ll be rocking this spring.
