Andrus’ bat has been slow to start this season, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that his shoe game is airtight. The Nike Zoom Vapor Elite is my favorite shoe in the game right now, and Andrus’ exclusives take it to another level.
We’ve seen him swinging both Tucci (one photo down) and Marucci (two photos down) recently, but he’s shown a lot of variation in his career. The DU26 is likely Dan Uggla’s model, which we haven’t seen online. He’s also swung SSK and MaxBat in the past. We’ll update the Marucci as soon as possible.
Nike Zoom Vapor Elite Exclusives in Black/Grey/Red/Blue with Blue Laces
Look two photos above for a great shot at these. Plain and simple they’re the fastest looking shoes in the game. He’s got two different versions we’ve seen. Aside from the obvious custom colors, there’s a gradient fade from blue to red on the dimples on one shoe and also on the midsole of his other version (below) that is the difference-maker for me.
Both of these Zoom Vapors have custom soles (including the molded spikes) and are not available online, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear about Andrus getting boosted in the parking lot by a WPW reader in the coming days. Smoke.
Nike Diamond Elite Pro II in Various Colors
As you can see in the photo above, Andrus most recently has been wearing a black/grey version of the DEIIs. These are exclusives, as are the royal/greys that he has also been wearing recently (below). He’s also worn whites with a black swoosh occasionally, too.

Figured we’d add this in since you guys love your pink. Get it while its hot.
