1st Look: Gleyber Torres’ Nike Cleats & Batting Gloves 2020


The internet might make you feel like you need to be mad about everything all the time, but its important to remember a little thing called happiness every once in a while. Happiness for me is baseball in the summer. And its happening now.

Yankees All-Star shortstop Gleyber Torres slid in the WPW DMs with a plethora of player exclusive heat this morning. Home and away cleats and batting gloves for your viewing pleasure…


It looks like Nike helped Gley celebrate his All-Star selection with these Nike Alpha Huarache PEs. (Various Alpha Huarache styles available at Dick’s, some low price options, too)

What you won’t find at Dick’s is this unbelievably cool Statue of Liberty / Yankees design on Gleyber’s insole. As a New Yorker and a Yankee fan since birth, I am shocked I haven’t seen this creative mashup before. I absolutely love it. Need it.

This is Gleyber’s second season as one of less than 50 baseball players in the world with a player exclusive Nike cleat deal.

In 2019, with his Nike cleats, Gleyber paid homage to Kobe Bryant and the Mamba Mentality, which has become a blueprint for so many great 21st century athletes.

With the road greys, Torres will rock a starry design, and even though the Yanks don’t wear pinstripes on the road, Gleyber will have pinstripes on his feet. I would like to see how the cushioning would look with the pinstripe design, too.

Cannot overstate the swagginess of the insole.

Gleyber’s batting gloves, the first we’ve seen of Nike’s new Alpha Huarache model (available at Dick’s for $45 / $25), make a pinstripe pattern out of Gleyber’s personal “GT” logo.

The road greys have the same style. Both look fire.

Of the home and away combos, which do you like best?

Shop the cleat and batting gloves ($45 / $25) at Dick’s Sporting Goods!
