We got some great looks at Nike’s custom leather work for the 2014 season thanks to @t_vett.  See Part 1 here.

We showed you Kurt Suzuki’s new Nike SHA|DO BF1483 catcher’s mitt, and here’s a closer look.  Notice the mesh back and “808” inscription, an ode to Suzuki’s home state of Hawaii.  Suzuki had another Hawaiian-themed treatment done to the inside of the mitt below.

Suzuki and Nike’s glove guys did an amazing job on this one.  Did you notice the Swoosh on the chest of that silhouette?

That’s not all, though.

Here’s Aroldis Chapman’s new Nike piece:

Jon Lester:

Ian Kinsler:

Notice the branding on the palm, a salute to Kinsler’s home state of Arizona and that web is just filthy.

As we found out, Suzuki’s BF1483 is not available.  To shop the rest of the SHA|DO series, click here and here (Eastbay for more options), and be sure to follow@t_vett on Instagram for more.
