The Adidas Excelsior Baseball Cleats are often referred to as the ultimate, do it all team cleats. After this review I think you will see why. Let me first start by saying you can get this shoe in either mid or low. This is great for those who would prefer one type of shoe over the other.
When it comes to best all around player, the Adidas Excelsior Baseball Cleats will win hands down every time. This is thanks to two very special technologies Adidas uses in their baseball shoes. The adiTUFF abrasion resistance technology and the Protrax TPU technology.
We will discuss each in just a second but let’s first talk about how lightweight this shoe is. If you have played the game of baseball for any amount of time you know how a heavy show can have a negative impact on your game. It can cause you to run slower and to get off the bases slower. In the game of baseball having a quick first step is extremely important.
And in order to do that you need a show that is lightweight. With the Adidas Excelsior Baseball Cleats you will have a lightweight baseball shoe that demands respect on the field. And when you add that to the comfort and durability this shoe provides, you have yourself a sure winner.
Now lets talk about the two technologies used to take this shoe to a whole new level. The first one is adiTUFF. In the game of basesball there is a lot of running involved. Because of this many will suffer from minor abrasions in the toe area. This is very common and happens quite often. But not with the AdidasExcelsior Baseball Cleat. It uses the adiTUFF technology to prevent such a thing from happening.
It is an abrasion resistant material that prevents abrasions in the toe area. It also gives the shoe exceptional durability. It causes the shoe to have a prolonged life because it can withstand the wear and tear for much longer than other materials. And because it is abrasion resistant, you will be able to run harder and much longer without feeling any discomfort.
The second technology is the Adidas Traxion technology. This technology was originally designed for football shoes to provide the traction and ground penetration for football players as they run up and down the field. However, softball players need that same type of traction to make it around the bases and run around in the infield catching fly balls. Softball players also need to check out softball bat reviews to ensure they are picking up the right bat!
The Traxion technology has a wide yet very narrow profile. This gives the baseball cleats exceptional grip with no slippage at all. This is something you don’t see in a lot of baseball cleats. You get maximum outsole grip which gives you a very explosive first step and the ability to stop on a dime.
The entire midsole of this shoe is covered in EVA. EVA gives this shoe the ultimate in comfort. Last but not least I want to talk about a technology that I have never heard of being used in any other baseball cleat and that is the OrthoLite odor resistant technology. As you know, when you are run around the baseball diamond your feet get hot and sweaty. But thanks to the odor resistant technology your feet will stay nice and fresh all day.
