Being the best in baseball requires balance. On the field, both speed and power count. A blend of agility and strength are required for excellence in batting and fielding. Mike Trout embodies these traits. Trout’s rare skill set and talents inform the design of the Nike Lunar Trout 2, the athlete's second signature cleat, and the Nike Lunar Trout 2 Turf, Trout’s first turf shoe.
Directly informed by Trout’s insights, the Nike Lunar Trout 2 combines dynamic fit and support for lightweight speed. Its unique plate, engineered for traction, ensures a quick first step — crucial for running the base paths and tracking down fly balls.
The Nike Lunar Trout 2 Blueprint, the cleat’s launch colorway, illustrates the reigning MVP's otherworldly athletic abilities: He reaches 20 mph between first and third, leaps 60 inches to snag a flyball and smashes pitches 489 feet.
The Nike Lunar Trout 2 will be available October 3. The Blueprint colorway will be available exclusively on Nike.com while black/white, gray/white, red/white and blue/white colorways will be available on Nike.com and at select retailers.
The Nike Lunar Trout 2 "Rainbow Trout" features a spectrum of colorful accents throughout the entire cleat that pays tribute to Mike’s love for fishing and the outdoors and launches November 7 on Nike.com.
