The Energy Boost Icon brings energy and acceleration to the field. Designed for five-tool players, the cleat features shockvent windows for maximum ventilation, an external heel clip for peak stability and a new print called Damascus.
“Everything we do at adidas is about making athletes better,” said Aaron Kahn, Director of Baseball for adidas. “adidas’ innovative Boost technology has revolutionized the running world and we are proud to now offer the same cushioning and energy return to baseball. Any player who spends hours a day on hard dirt in metal spikes will be amazed by what ‘9th inning energy’ feels like.”
Louisville and UC Irvine will debut the Energy Boost Icon this week at the College World Series.
The Energy Boost baseball cleat is part of the Silver Package, which includes the EQT X1 and X2 bats, EQT silver batting glove and EQT silver mitt. The EQT X1 features an extended barrel profile designed for maximum bat speed balance and control, while the EQT X2 boasts permalock connection technology and a durable texin end cap that maximizes the sweet spot.
