Without any fanfare (or even a press release from Nike), Mike Trout‘s latest iteration of his signature Nike cleat is here, the Trout 7. Lets take a look at what we’ve been able to find so far on the Trout 7, including the Pro MCS, the Keystone, the Pro Metal, and the turf shoe.
Nike Kids’ Force Trout 7 Keystone Cleats
Similar to the MCS, the Keystone also features a molded cleat bed, but this one is made of less durable rubber with a different color outsole. These are available in black at Nike for $50 and for younger players with less demanding schedules.
Nike Force Trout 7 Pro MCS Cleats
This version of the Trout 7 cleat features a synthetic leather upper and midfoot strap to keep a snug fit. On the heel of the midsole you can see “MVNJ-856” for Trout’s hometown of Millville, New Jersey and its area code. This cleat is currently available in 5 colors: black, gray, white, blue and red. You can get a pair at Dick’s Sporting Goods for $70.
Nike Force Zoom Trout 7 Pro Metal Cleats
The Trout 7 Pro Metal cleats are a step or two up in quality and tech from their MCS and Keystone counterparts. These are a lower cut cleat and do not feature the midfoot strap that we’re used to seeing from Trout.
We love the addition of Air, but where’s the swag? If you take away the requisite Nike check, you aren’t left with much. They are currently available in blue and grey at Dick’s for $85 and black at Hibbett Sports for $85.
Nike Force Zoom Trout 7 Turf Shoe
Like the spike version, the turf shoe also features that Air Zoom unit in the heel of the shoe, and also has cages around the heel and midfoot to boost that “locked in” feel.
We also found these new images of the mid version. It features a new lacing system called “Ghost Lace” that “tightens with one pull and stays hidden” . The mid version is now available in black on Eastbay for $130 and Black and Gold on Baseball Monkey for $130.
The youth turf looks a lot like a popular lacrosse turf favored in the MLB, especially a few years ago. It has the same look to the sole and pegged bottoms. For $50 bucks, a pretty cool baseball shoe.
