Baseball fans, rejoice! We’ve made it to midpoint of the
grueling 162-game season. Now it’s time to kick back, relax, and enjoy baseball’s
All-Star game. For the avid or casual fan, this is one of the best games of the
year. The biggest names in the game assemble for one night of big hits,
spectacular plays, and fun-loving trash talk. It’s also where these top players
show off the all-star cleats they use to elevate their game. Eastbay is home to
the best selection of baseball cleats, including the newest models chock-full
of cutting-edge technology. Let’s check out some of the top picks and the
All-Stars who’ll be rocking them throughout the second half of the season.

New Balance 4040v5

Baseball is a game of ever-changing strategy, and the new
era of ballplayers is constantly adapting to the evolution of America’s pastime.
So, when you step onto the diamond, you need a versatile cleat for this
versatile game. The fifth version of New Balance’s popular 4040 cleat offers a
new Kinetic Stitch upper, strategically placed in high-stress zones to support
the foot with stronger material that doesn’t compromise flexibility. New
Balance tested the cleat using a variety of baseball movements that included
balance while batting, stability while planting during a pitch, and
accelerating while running the bases. Plus, when All-Stars like DJ LeMahieu and
Jorge Polanco consistently rock the 4040 line, you know it’s a legit cleat
built for all-around players. After browsing our large selection of team
colors, make sure to check out the new All-Star colorway, available at
eastbay.com.

Nike Force Zoom Trout 6

Personalized Mike Trout features include: Cleat plate mapped to Trout’s foot and 865 area code on the heel to pay homage to Trout’s hometown

Smacking dingers, driving the gaps, blazing the base paths,
and making plays in the field. Is there anything the overall leader in All-Star
fan voting, Mike Trout, can’t do? The short answer is no, and it’s only fitting
that the newest version of Trout’s signature cleat is designed to help you do
it all, too. The Nike Force Zoom Trout 6 features Flyweave construction that
conforms to your foot, providing the ultimate lightweight support. Nike also
used a data-generated design from the two-time AL MVP’s foot to pinpoint where
to reinforce the bottom plate, providing exceptional traction. Finally, the
sixth version of this cleat has a large strap across the lacing that keeps your
foot locked down during intense movements.

adidas adiZERO Afterburner 6

All Star Afterburner

If speed is the name of your game, then the Afterburner 6 is
the perfect choice for you. The tongueless bootie construction feels like a
natural extension of your foot, while the widened anatomical lacing system
delivers a custom, locked-down fit. These cleats were specifically designed to
allow for quick, multidirectional movement when turning that single into a
double or chasing down a ball in the gap. So, it’s no surprise that All-Star
starters, Alex Bregman and Ketel Marte, sport the newest Afterburners while
tearing up the diamond. Don’t forget to visit eastbay.com for the brand new
“Iced Out” colorway.

adidas Icon V Boost

There’s a reason that Kris Bryant is one of the best young
players in baseball today. It’s because he works tirelessly day after day to
perfect his game – down to the smallest detail. So it’s only fair that adidas
put in the same effort when designing the newest Icon Boost cleat, worn by the superstar
slugger. The Icon V Boosts feature a full-length BOOST midsole that provides
game-changing comfort while easing the pressure felt from metal spikes. These
cleats also include a brand new fit system that uses flexible elastic bands for
an easy on/off and a back-lacing configuration for a locked-down feel. The Icon
V Boosts are also available in the new “Iced Out” colorway, in addition to a
large selection of team colors.
