Altuve is proof that in baseball, size really doesn’t matter.  The 5’6″ Venezuelan flash is leading the AL in AVG, SB, and hits at the time of this writing and just bagged his 2nd All Star appearance in 3 full seasons.  Baseball is the only sport where you can line up 9 Jose Altuve’s against 9 LeBron James’ and still have no clue who will win.  For that, and for Jose Altuve, us sub-6-footers are thankful.

Cleats

Nike Air Huarache Pro Low

Nike Lunar Vapor Trout Spectrum in Orange/Volt  (All Star Game)

Altuve is a player that relies on stealth, and his gear reflects that.  He keeps an understated grey/black look throughout his gear, including the Air Huarache Pro Low you see below. These are available at the link above.

In the All Star Game, however, Altuve indulged and went with the head-turners, the Nike Lunar Vapor Trout Spectrum in orange, available at the link above.

Bat

Tucci TL-238 Maple 33/31

As you can see in the feature, Altuve handles a Tucci TL-238 Maple.  This cut is not available, but you can shop Tucci’s available pro lumber here.

Batting Gloves

Nike MVP Elite Pro in Various Astros Colors

Nike Vapor Elite Pro (All Star Game)

Altuve has mixed in just about any colorway of the MVP Elite Pro that would possibly work for the Astros awesome color palette.  Unfortunately, none of them that we’ve seen are available.

In the All Star Game, Altuve went with a little more flair than we’re used to seeing from him with the Vapor Elite Pro batting gloves you see below, which are available in a few colorways.  Volt fans, eat your heart out.

Glove

Wilson A2K 1786 2015 in Black/Grey

Jose showed this beauty off on his Instagram on Opening Day, along with some Nike batting gloves and a TL-S318 Maple.  (He hasn’t been swinging this lately.)  GOOD NEWS: Altuve’s Wilson glove is the 2015 Pro Stock version, which is available on order at the link above.

Sunglasses

Various Oakley Models, including Oakley Radar Path, Oakley Fast Jacket

We’ve seen Altuve wear a few different versions, including the all-white Radar Path below, as well as the Fast Jacket further down.
