That is the absolute definition of “Hanleywood” right there.
Whether you love it or hate it, Giants need a W tonight to avoid getting steamrolled by, in my view, the best team on paper in baseball. You’re crazy if you don’t shudder looking at that 3-man rotation of Kershaw, Greinke, and Ryu. And then as a pitcher you’re staring down a 2-3-4 of Puig-Gonzalez-Hanley that, if Dee Gordon finds a way on base, you’re living my nightmare.
We all know his history, so Hanley’s looking to reduce the pounding on his joints over the stretch run by mixing in a TPU (plastic) 4040v2 from New Balance, who is now at a point where they’ve got the best palette in baseball and they’re having fun with it. These cleats look good in every color. This one looks like its got a reptilian treatment to compliment Hanley’s overall opulence.
Hanley had a brief stint with Carl Crawford’s Jordan 12s early in the season, but he’s come right back to his NB “Hanleywood” cleats that he’d been in since last year. These are obviously player exclusive, but there is plenty to choose from with the 4040v2. Shop them here.
