Exceptionally talented and exceedingly humble, Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels has already cemented himself as one of the greatest talents to ever play the game, and his signature Nike cleat/trainer line is helping him walk his legendary path with its newest model: the Zoom Force Trout 6. From a performance standpoint, the Force Zoom Trout 6 is perfect for the center fielder’s 5-tool style of play, as it features a Flyweave upper that shaves 1.5 ounces off the weight of the previous model, with a midfoot strap for exceptional lockdown and Zoom Air cushioning for exemplary comfort. However, it’s certainly no slouch on the aesthetic end either. There’s accents inspired by retro Nike baseball cleats and plenty of personal details as well. These unique embellishments range from an arrowhead detail on the strap that’s inspired by Trout’s love for archery to the area code of his south New Jersey hometown of Millville stealthily printed on the midsole.
Trout’s love for his young fans is well-known, so he also wanted to ensure that his new Nike shoes would present a look that any kid would love to take the field in, stating “Kids have a unique relationship to their gear. Obviously, you think about young kids who are going to wear this cleat and make them look good, and more importantly, make them feel good. Nike allows me to change what I want, and in doing so, I can create a cleat that young players are hopefully excited to wear.” The Force Zoom Trout is available now in both cleat ($130) and turf shoe iterations ($120), so head over to Nike.com to secure your pair today.
