Continuing our look at player edition Nike baseball cleats for some of the best in the big leagues, we now bring you a first-hand look at this PE edition of the Air Max Diamond Elite exclusively for Matt Holliday. Holliday began his career after unexpectedly breaking onto the major league scene in 2004 as a member of the Colorado Rockies due to injuries to several Rockies major league players at the time. Now a member of the N.L Central power house St. Louis Cardinals, Holliday has been one of the most productive offensive forces in the league ever since he first made a name for himself as a key-component in the Colorado Rockies 2007 World Series run.
Currently in his second-full season as a member of the Cardinals, Holliday looks to pull through his current disabled list stint and continue to lead his Cardinals to yet another N.L Central divison title, where they currently hold a 2 game lead over the Brewers. Holliday will lead the Cards alongside Pujols and their flawless pitching in this PE pair of the Air Max Diamond Elite. Suited for both the Cardinals home and road uniforms, they work in a combination of red, white and blue throughout the upper. Personalization for Holliday is seen throughout, with ‘MH 7’ taking place on the tongue and heel tab, and a unique Matt Holliday logo stitched into the heel.
Enjoy a closer look at Matt’s player exclusive below, and look for him to continue to lead the Cardinals to victory in this exact pair of the Nike Air Max Diamond Elite.
