Joe Mauer’s one of those rare Major Leaguers who hits for average and for power while playing the catcher’s position. The 2009 AL MVP was selected to grace the cover of the MLB The Show franchise for the second straight year, and Nike is celebrating Mauer’s accomplishments as an athlete and repeat coverboy status with a special PE colorway of the Nike Zoom Huarache TR Low. It features a navy blue upper with a red inner sleeve and a white outsole to complete the Minnesota Twins appeal. Additional details include the Sony Playstation badge on the tongue and the MLB The Show graphic insoles. Check out the detailed images of the sick new colorway and expect these to hit select retailers like Sole Boutique on April 9th, as these are set to be a Quickstrike release.
