Today, star outfielder Mike Trout joins an exclusive baseball club. Since Major League Baseball introduced the All-Star Game Most Valuable Player award in 1962, only two other players have won both an All-Star Game MVP and regular season MVP in the same season. To celebrate Trout’s record-shattering twin MVP titles, Nike Baseball has created a one-of-a-kind pack presented to Mike that captures key moments of the outfielder’s epic year.
Commemorative gold box
Included in the commemorative gold box are three versions of the Nike Lunar Vapor Trout, each recognizing a significant moment of Trout’s 2014 season. The first Nike Lunar Vapor Trout is the red and Volt colorway that Trout debuted during batting practice on June 20.
The second cleat, the Nike Lunar Vapor Trout “Trout,” is what he wore during the 85th MLB All-Star Game and consequently the MVP award.
The last cleat in the pack, the Nike Lunar Vapor Trout “MVP” edition, is featured in black, gray and gold with a metallic gold plate. The medial side of the cleat features Trout’s number, 27. The special three-sectioned box features an MVP acrylic and is inscribed with Trout’s name, number and 2014 statistics, including a .287 batting average, 36 home runs, 111 runs batted in and a .377 on-base percentage.
Lunar Vapor Trout
Informed by Trout’s insights
The Nike Lunar Vapor Trout is designed for the directional speed needed to steal more bases, catch more balls in the outfield and get out of the batter’s box quickly. The cleat features a durable and lightweight Nike Lunarlon foam midsole for comfort and a split Pebax speed plate for ultra-responsive movement across the field.
The California Golden Mike Trout MVP tee in black, gray and gold is named after the official state fish of California, the Golden Trout. It will be available on nike.com on Nov. 13, while the Nike Lunar Vapor Trout will also be available on NIKEiD on Dec. 15
