Brenton Wehrmeyer recently posted this Nike Baseball 2020 project (which is still a work-in-progress) to his portfolio. With the aim being to design cleats that will allow for better traction and spring in the forefoot area, allowing for a more explosove and faster jump in any situation on the field, Brenton created a cleat with a two-piece plate and a shank acting as a bridge between the forefoot and heel to give the user a more natural foot motion. He also added a protective skin over the vamp to protect from balls off the bat, foam protection in between knit layers and a leather overlay TPU overlay on knit tp protect against toe drag.
Brenton’s still intending on adding another cleat and turf trainer to round out the project, but for now you can see some of the initial thought process and progression behind his Nike Baseball 2020 Cleat Concept, below.
