Mike Trout’s astounding rookie campaign earned him a full-ride on none other than the almighty Swoosh.  Not only is he wearing the shoes and batting gloves, but Trout has also converted in the field.  Let’s take a look.


Nike Diamond Elite Pro BF1433 Custom (sold out last we checked)

Mike Trout’s Rawlings got subbed out for a custom Nike with the same stylized Trap web as Matt Kemp‘s, but with his own modifications. (Thanks to Gonzalo for coming up big again on this one.)

You can see in the feature photo that Trout’s glove has his own signature embroidered on the thumb next to the Nike Baseball logo.  A little less noticeable but no less cool is the wrist strap with “30/30,” referencing Trout’s explosive rookie season.  Trout’s BF1433 also has the closed back, with only the Fastback opening for the index finger.  What’s funny to me is that he doesn’t even use that slot.  Maybe guys think a glove would look funny without at least some opening back there?  It also does provide some ventilation so I guess it serves some purpose.

Most recently we saw Trouty wearing the Show-x1 Pro in black on black, but as you can see in the photos above and below, he switches it up.  Excitingly enough, each version we’ve seen him in is available via the links above.

Here’s a couple videos for your enjoyment.  The first is a highlight reel of Trout’s 2012 season.  I hope you don’t mind there’s a few bombs mixed in there along with some spectacular plays.  His speed is just absurd.


  1. In all likelihood Matt Kemp‘s glove is from Japanese Nike. On contrary, Mike Trout’s glove is definitely made by American Nike.
    I think the differences among these three guys’ glove are pretty conspicuous. lol

  2. That’s not a SHA|DO, it’s a regular DEP
