Mike Trout’s Nike Trout 3 MVP Customs by Recon Northwest

Mike Trout MVP 2016 Cleats

2016 MVP Mike Trout just received some very special custom Trout 3s, done by Recon Northwest, to celebrate his 2nd MVP (before his age 25 season).  Trout has finished 1st or 2nd every single year he’s been in the league.  Has that ever happened before?  Good grief.

Let me gush briefly.

Trout’s got as many MVPs as Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams and Willie Mays.

I wonder if Lou Gehrig got some fresh customs to commemorate his MVPs.  ?
