BOLDR is a baseball cleat that is able to compete in style with the crowded basketball market. These cleats have an aggressive aesthetic with sharp lines and bold colors. They also provide functional improvements like toe protection for sliding and extra ankle support.
As both a previous baseball and basketball player, I have noticed a big difference in the two shoe markets. Basketball shoes or sneakers attract a lot more attention from consumers and manufacturers. The quality and choice is much more developed for basketball shoes than it is for baseball shoes, but why? I believe baseball shoes deserve just as much attention as basketball shoes.
"why do basketball shoes get all the attention? We work just as hard!"
- American baseball player
I have been playing baseball for about 14 years and have a lot of experience with different shoes. I know what features work and which are just gimmicks. In general I have never been satisfied with the options available especially compared to basketball which I have played for about 9 years.
I have also been able to talk to teammates and other baseball players about their opinions on baseball shoes. They are also not happy with the choices and lack of options. I learnt what they liked and didn't like on certain shoes and this helped my design decision making.
