Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez teams with Nike for new, lighter glove

DENVER — Nike and Rockies All-Star Carlos Gonzalez are joining forces. They set out to reinvent the baseball glove and came up with a new one.

The Nike Vapor 360 uses hyperfuse and flexible flywire technology to make the glove 20 percent lighter and virtually cut break-in time completely.

With special “tunable” inserts and perforated leather, the glove will form comfortably to your hand the first time you use it.

Gonzalez showed off the new glove Tuesday night during the All-Star Game. It’s expected to go on sale in time for the holidays.
