As adidas is making a serious run at the metal bat space with the EQT X1 and EQT X2, it might not come as much of a surprise to learn they’ve also released a line of premium leather baseball gloves under the EQT franchise. A pitcher, infield and outfield handcrafted glove with Pro K3 leather may grace some MLB fields this year as Oscar Mercado (@Osc_merc), Tyrell Jenkins (@), Ender Inciarte (@) and Angelo Gumbs (#twitterless) all take to the professional ranks.
I’m a fan of the gray with the blue lettering. The ‘Damascus Steel’ look of the wrist patch to match the X1 and X2 bats is a nice touch and growing on me. An Adidas logo in the palm of a baseball glove might take a while to get used to, but the glove, yet to be broken in by me and played with, feels as good as any new glove I’ve put on. A medium depth pocket and open webbing on the infield glove feels right.
