On Friday, Nike unveiled Mike Trout's second signature cleat, the Nike Lunar Trout 2, which will also be available as a turf shoe—a first for the Los Angeles Angels center fielder.

The company tapped what it described as Trout's "otherworldly athletic abilities" for the launch colorway, the Nike Lunar Trout 2 Blueprint, which will be available exclusively on Nike.com on October 3.

It features some of the reigning American League MVP's most notable stats—the 20 mph speed he reaches between first and third base, the 60 inches he can jump to catch a fly ball and the 489 feet he can slug a home run.


The other colorways will be available online and at select retailers the same release day.

Trout recently spoke with Bleacher Report, naming LeBron James as the athlete he would most like to switch places with.

He also took a neutral stance on the Drake vs. Meek Mill beef, though Drake's "6 God" has sounded through Angel Stadium of Anaheim every time Trout has stepped up to the plate this season.
