Welcome news for ballplayers waiting for ANYTHING new to drop, the New Balance Fuel Cell COMP v3 cleat dropped a few days ago exclusively at Dick’s Sporting Goods. Retail is $150 (!), but that hasn’t stopped those thirsting for a new look as the whites already basically sold out. Red, navy, and black still have good inventory (as of 4/6/22).
The COMP line is centered on a plate that promises the traction of metal with the lightness of plastic.
These new v3’s offer a woven upper that looks well-ventilated while the toe and heel seem intelligently designed to avoid tearing, which New Balance Baseball has built for in the past.
This is the most expensive cleat on the market that I’m aware of, but its also the newest. If you need a fresh look, these are the choice. Get ’em at Dick’s for $150 while they last.
