Nike Vapor 360 Fielding Glove With No Break-In Time
So it’s goodbye Derek Jeter after this season, and what the hell, while we’re at it, maybe it’s time to make some other changes in baseball too. While the commissioner mulls over our topless umpires idea, it seems Nike has one of its own: gloves that are instantly broken in.
The key to this breakthrough is the fact that Nike’s Vapor 360 Fielding Glove features leather only in the palm. Otherwise it’s the company’s Hyperfuse technology and flexible Flyknit lacing that results in a 20% lighter glove and one that requires no tedious, months-long break-in time. The Vapor 360 also features PORON foam for comfort and a high-frequency molded web that enhances the lightweight profile. Look for it at sporting goods stores this holiday season. [Purchase]
