With the right light, a pair of stunners can make a good player great. Plus-ten points on the batting average and at least a few MPH’s on the gun, easy. That’s science.
So lets take a moment to observe and appreciate the best stunner shades of the MLB 2021 season.
Whit Merrifield is riding his own wave with the shades resting on top of the head like a NFL coach’s headset.
It definitely shows off the 100% Speedcrafts that he’s been rocking for the last few seasons. They’re available at $155-$195 at 100percent.com.
When you’re hitting .400 in May it doesn’t really matter what you’re wearing. But these Nike Show X3 sunglasses are still hot enough to suit the hottest hitter on Earth, Mike Trout.
Get ’em at NikeVision.com for $179-$199. Trout’s colors are player exclusive.
Oakley looks like they upped their stunner game after 100% was taking their lunch for a couple of seasons. While Manny Machado rocked 100% briefly, he went back to Oakley for these Oakley Sutro Prizm shades ($166, Amazon).
They really popped in the right light.
Francisco Lindor‘s slow start in New York has not slowed his style down one bit. Once he starts hitting, Citi Field is going to be a sea of Lindor jerseys.
Lindor is wearing a new style from Oakley, the Encoder, available in two colorways for the utterly ridiculous price of $248 at Oakley.com.
Byron Buxton is putting it all together this year, putting up video game numbers and showing exactly why he was MLB’s number one prospect in baseball back in 2014 and 2015.
Bux wears the Nike Skylon Ace, a low-profile throwback that has always been an MLB favorite. Get the Skylon Ace for $79-$119 at NikeVision.com.
Flow Bichette wears the 100% Hypercraft in the perfect Blue Jays colorway. These are an 11 out of 10 on the Swag Scale, and they’re actually available for $175 at Amazon.com. 100percent.com offers colorways, too, but Bo’s is out of stock at time of publish for $165.
Fernando Tatis, Jr.
How could we possibly make a list like this without the swaggiest guy in the league right now. The crazy thing is that Fernando Tatis‘ sunglasses are the same as Bo Bichette‘s, the 100% HYPERCRAFT, available for $175 at Amazon.com. 100percent.com offers colorways, too, but Tati’s is out of stock at time of publish for $165. So. Damn. Saucy.
So who’s got the best shades in MLB?
