This baseball cleats were developed absorbing some request of Mr. Shohei Ohtani who is MLB(Major League Baseball) player in Los Angeles Angels. He mainly needed 2 key points for this shoes to demonstrate his maximum performance. One of that is getting rid of P-guard by choosing Polyurethane material for upper that withstand hard wear, and keeping balance of both left and right foot. Due to adding cleats at heel, stability has improved whenever he plays, that is secound point. And also shoes design is linked Mr.Ohtani. Because he loves Japanese style, "KARESANSUI" from ZEN inspire us to make this design.
