Josh Hamilton is best known for making the old Yankee Stadium look like a tee-ball field.  It was that jaw-dropping power that made him a #1 overall pick in 1999.  He harnesses that astounding torque in a custom pair of Nike Air Huarache 2K4 spikes.  The color scheme isn’t available for retail, but we did our best photoshopping to show you what they look like on his feet.  You can also see them in the picture of Hamilton, taken at the 2011 World Series.


Though Hamilton only debuted  5 seasons ago, his trophy room is stocked with a 2010 AL MVP, 2008 AL RBI title, 2010 AL batting title, and a 2010 ALCS MVP, among others.  An All-Star the last four seasons, Hamilton makes his Lousville Slugger look like a wiffle ball bat.  He grips it with a custom pair of Franklin Carbon Fibre II that you see above.  This color scheme is also not available, but the glove retails in a few different alternative schemes.
