With a couple of weeks in the books, lets take a look at what we’ve seen around the league so far.
The LeBron Soldier 10 is still popping up all over the league with Custom Cleats conversions.
Along with Yangervis Solarte, Rougned Odor, Josh Donaldson, Nelson Cruz and many other pros wearing them as cleats, Trevor Story has been wearing them pre-game.
We’ve mentioned it on IG a few times already… Stance is in its first year as Official Sock of the MLB, and they’re making their presents known throughout the league. We saw Denard Span wearing them well for the Giants (above).
Giancarlo, too. The pants up look is a classically good look, and these socks add a 21st century edge to it. Shop Stance’s plethora of MLB options here.
Dansby Swanson is still gaming his A2K from last year that everybody loved so much. From what he told us in Florida, it sounded like he may go for the A2000 instead, but he’s clearly gotten comfortable with the A2K.
I tend to think it only looks better with age. Get Dansby’s A2K 1786 in his exact specs here.
Speaking of Wilson, David Wright’s got a new piece, complete with a branded “Jumpman” style logo of Wright himself. You can actually get what we’d consider a better looking DW5 on Wilson’s website, in grey/blue/black/orange, and it even has the D. Wright logo on it.
Justin Bour is the first position player we’ve seen wear a 44 Pro glove in a Big League game. He hasn’t gamed this one just yet (he wears a less showy 44), but we hope it makes the cut soon. Its pretty sexy. Check out 44 Pro here.
Matt Harvey switched to Rawlings this off-season, leaving Nike behind entirely. Rawlings hooked him up with a camo mesh shagger, which we think is somewhere in the above photo.
Christian Yelich’s training glove is probably a hold-over from the WBC (USA-USA-USA). He added an H-Web to match his Gold Glove winning Rawlings PRO303.
We noticed Brandon Crawford swinging his own model of Warstic, a company who has been very selective on the players they’ve supplied.
Last but not least, we wanted to throw out a vote: Who’s wearing the “Mint/Tiffany Blue” better, Nolan Arenado or Brandon Phillips?
We spoke to both guys about this exact topic on our Youtube channel. More videos yet to be added this year, including Bryce Harper, Trea Turner, Carlos Correa, and others. Its worth subscribing if you’re into that sort of thing..
So, Arenado or Phillips?
