Yoenis Cespedes was dominant in last night’s MLB Home Run Derby, blasting a total of 32 homers in the Nike MVP Elite 3/4. Although Cespedes opted for something more subtle than the Nike “Big Apple” collection, the fiery red cleats were on center stage thanks to sluggers like Chris Davis and Michael Cuddyer. Also worth mentioning was finalist Bryce Harper’s exclusive Under Armour Spine Highlight ST colorway.
Cespedes blasted 17 homers in the first round (the third highest single round total of all time), six in the second, and 9 in the finals for a total of 32 on the night. His Nike MVP Elite 3/4 cleats are available now from Nike iD for $130 and can be configured with cushioning of the user’s choice.
Runner-up Bryce Harper kept it flashy in his UA Spine Highlight ST “All-Star” makeup. The model officially hits retailers in October, although there’s no word if Harper’s version will be available to the public. Harper hit 8 homers in all three rounds of the derby, finishing up with 24 total.
Meanwhile, both Chris Davis and Michael Cuddyer donned the Nike Air Huarache Pro Mid Metal in the limited “Big Apple” colorway. Cuddyer finished with 15 homers, while Davis had 12. If you’re interested in picking up a pair, the limited style is still available for $115.
