Jeremy Guthrie is known for bringing a sneaker-centric sensibility to MLB, and this weekend he outdid himself. When he took the mound Saturday to start against the Baltimore Orioles, he unveiled his latest footwear accomplishment: Foamposite baseball cleats.
The acclaimed Sport Blue Foamposite One, a perfect match for the uniforms and colors of Guthrie’s Kansas City Royals, was refitted with baseball spikes on the still-rubber outsole. In fact, the entire shoe is unchanged, save for the addition of those metal cleats stretching from heel to toe.
This is a Guthrie one-off, so don’t expect a public release. Is this one of the great baseball cleats you’ve seen of late?
