For me, getting a new mitt always came with a bittersweet realization. The excitement for an upgraded glove was quickly overshadowed by the daunting task of breaking it in to my exact specifications. Seeing this as an opportunity to redesign an archetypal piece of equipment, Nike has developed the first lightweight, ultra-responsive glove that comes game-ready right out of the box. To achieve this, the Vapor 360 features a leather palm with an engineered perforated pattern that provides a game-ready feel without sacrificing strength and structure – but that’s not all. Its Hyperfuse construction produces a nearly seamless one-piece panel, a Flywire lacing system strengthens its structure, the inclusion of a perforated, soft PORON foam at the inside of its wrist enhances breathability and comfort, and a high-frequency molded web makes this glove that much more responsive. Answering the call of outfielders around the globe, the Nike Vapor 360 will be available this holiday season.
