Dee Gordon got his first taste of the new Under Armour Yard in Spring Training for a photo shoot. He was supposed to give them back after the shoot. He put them on, ran around a bit, and then told Under Armour, “You’re not going to be able to get me out of this cleat. Its the best cleat I’ve literally ever put on.”
Dee was so jacked up about the cleat that he DM’d @whatproswear:
He told us it was the best he’s ever worn. Now, the best cleat Dee Gordon has ever worn is available for purchase.
According to UA, and similar to the new Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2, the Yard aims to offer a sneaker-like fit:
“By mimicking how a running shoe is zoned, and using ultra-comfortable signature textiles, the UA Yard is bringing the sneaker fit and feel to cleated footwear.”
Andrew Benintendi also had high praise, calling the Yard “one of… if not my favorite cleat I’ve ever worn.” The mesh vamp above the toes offers breathability and mobility, a popular sneaker-like feature we’ve seen on many baseball cleats lately.
