The Nike Air Huarache 2KFilth baseball cleats are an all-around great pair of shoes to wear when playing ball. They can offer you amazing comfort thanks to the Nike Zoom and Air technologies in the midsole and the soft upper that hugs your feet, giving you a fantastic in-shoe and underfoot experience that your feet will thank you for throughout the game. They offer you a responsive ride, giving you a little edge by saving you energy with each step you take while rounding the bases or running after the ball in the outfield. Some customers have a few problems with the durability of the shoes, stating that one of the metal cleats on the bottom snapped off, but because of the lower price tag customers do not seem to be too deterred by the occasional durability issues they might encounter with them. The shoes are both lightweight and flexible, so you aren’t being weighed down or restricted while you are wearing them. Support can become a problem, some consumers saying that they slide around inside the foot chamber, but not everyone experiences these problems, but it is something that you might want to keep in mind. All and all, however, they are a decent pair of cleats with an affordable price tag. Both your feet and your wallet will love you for this purchase.

Editor's Pros & Cons
Pros

Affordable price tag

Amazing traction

Flexible and lightweight

Fun color options

Great comfortability

Cons

Not the most supportive

Some durability issues

Uppers

Uppers

The uppers of these cleats are made out of a mixture of synthetic leather as well as mesh materials to ensure that you are getting a lightweight feel as well as a well-ventilated pair of shoes for the big game. The uppers are integrated with Nike's Flywire technology to give you a secure and locked-in feel so your feet will not be wobbling around inside the foot chamber while you are rounding the bases. The uppers are designed to keep your feet comfortable and supportive, and they do a pretty good job at that task.

The breathable mesh is also helpful because it will help keep you from overheating. It can get warm while you are running the bases or standing in the outfield under the hot sun. The fact that your cleats will allow air to flow into them and circulate your feet will be significant to help prevent you from getting too hot and sweaty. Not only does the breathability keep you cooled down, but it will also help reduce the moisture in your shoe since it will quickly evaporate and escape the foot chamber, keeping you relatively dry.
Midsole

Midsole

The Nike's feature a midsole constructed out of Phylon foam with a full-length Nike Zoom unit to give you an amazingly responsive ride. You will not only get the comfort you desire underfoot, but you will also receive a little spring in your step, giving you a slight edge over your opponents. The lightweight midsole will let your feet sink down into the foam, but the Phylon will want to quickly snap back to its original shape which can push you forward, helping you save some energy with your steps. This is going to allow you to run just a little bit faster, allowing you to run home with ease and speed.

The Zoom unit is designed to be lightweight so it can keep the weight off of the cleats, so they do not weigh you down. The unit is thin, but don't let that fool you, it is quite effective at keeping your comfortable, and it is highly durable. The thin sole helps bring your forefoot closer to the ground to bring you better stability and support, especially when you are making the multi-directional movements and quick cuts that are caused by rounding the bases.
Outsole

Outsole

The Nike Air Huarache 2KFilth's have a metal outsole pattern that features a full-length Pebax plate which gives you helpful cleats that are strategically placed to ensure you get fantastic traction while you are in the field, as well as optimal support and a high energy return that you will be able to appreciate on game day. The only sliding that you will have to worry about while running in these cleats are the ones you want to do when trying to get to the bases.

They also feature geometric divots on the bottoms of the soles that help ensure that dirt and grass will not cling to the cleats. You are going to be grateful for this feature because without it you risk building up dirt and gunk on the bottoms of your shoes which can make your cleats all but useless. This is going to help keep them free of debris so you can sink your feet into the ground and keep your footing when you need it.
Style

Style

When you are playing baseball, the look and style of your footwear might be the furthest thing from your mind as you just want something that is going to be comfortable and functional. You are going to get that from these shoes, but you will also get some style as well. They come in a plethora of fun colors so you are sure to find something that you will just love. Chances are you will be able to acquire a pair that matches your team colors, and if not you can still enjoy a fun pop of color while on the field or even just a plain and simple choice. They are available in university red and white; cool grey, white, and wolf grey; game royal and white; black and white; total orange, anthracite, and volt; pine green and white; white and black; cool grey and white; wolf grey and white; black and wolf grey; or black and anthracite. It doesn't matter what colorway you decide to purchase, and they are going to look great on game day.

The sneakers themselves feature a mid-top design with a traditional lacing system, giving you some extra ankle support. They have a pull tab on both the heel and tongue of the shoe to help you put them on and take them off with ease. They, of course, also feature the iconic Nike "Swoosh" logo front and center.
Durability

Durability

Typically, when you are buying a product you want to find something that is going to be durable and give you a good value for the money spent. That being said, you can also expect your sports gear to wear out faster than something that you are buying for casual wear as they are going to be used and abused much harder than something else you might be donning. The Nike's, according to customers, do not have the best in the way of durability and have been known to fall apart sooner than consumers would have liked. This does not happen with every pair, but it's something that happens and is worth noting. They have a very reasonable price tag so that is something that many users would expect, as you generally get what you paid for when it comes to footwear.

The uppers and midsole do not seem to have any problems with longevity, as they are constructed quite well and do not wear down quickly at all. The problem lies in the cleats, as some reviewers mentioned that they could easily break and fall off while playing. Yes, it can get frustrating spending your money on a pair of shoes just to have them break on you, but the affordable price tag lessens the hurt on your wallet a little.

The majority of customers are happy with the lifespan of the Nike Air Huarache 2KFilth's, but there are some out there who would have liked to have seen them last just a little bit longer and did not feel that they were entirely worth the price they paid for them.
Comfort

Comfort

Ensuring that your shoes are comfortable while heading out to the diamond is essential. You are going to be on your feet for a while and doing a lot of running so you want to make sure that you get the comfort that you need so your feet are hurting you too bad that they are throwing you off of your game. Thankfully, the Nike Air Huarache 2KFilth's are rather comfortable, and you should have no problem with them on the field. They feature Nike's Zoom insole sitting on top of a Phylon foam midsole to ensure you get a cushioned underfoot experience that your feet will thank you for after the game. The uppers are designed to fit your feet snuggly, giving you a soft and comforting feeling all around. The interior lining on the underside of the upper will help prevent irritating rubbing and blisters, and the mesh uppers will help keep you fresh and dry while you are playing hard. All and all, they are pretty comfortable, and customers can appreciate that about them.
Versatility

Versatility

These Nike's are specially made for the baseball diamond and would not really be a great fit anywhere else. They have a cleated bottom that is designed to help keep your feet firmly in place on the field, and those cleats do not transition well to the pavement or any indoor surfaces, as you will risk damage to the floor and even your shoes. It is best to keep these cleats where they belong, the diamond.
Flexibility

Flexibility

Whether you are in the outfield running for the ball or you are rounding the bases, on your way to home plate, you are not going to want to feel like your shoes are restricting your movements and slowing you down. You want to get to the ball or the base as quickly as possible so making sure that your cleats are flexible is essential. The Nike's offer a decent amount of flex to them so when you are running they will move with the natural movements of your foot, giving you a free feel that might not even have known was imperative. Of course, they are not going to be as freeing as your running sneakers or other types of footwear, but when compared to other baseball cleats, they are going to give you a little better flexibility that will go a long way.
Fit

Fit

Making sure that you are ordering the correct size of footwear is essential to getting a pair of comfortable and supportive shoes. It is especially important when you are getting something to wear while participating in sports, such as baseball. You need to make sure that they fit your feet snuggly, so you are not sliding around too much inside of them, but at the same time of they are too tight then you are going to be miserable and uncomfortable, and no one wants that. That being said, the Nike Air Huarache 2KFilth's are running true to size so that is going to make choosing your size significantly more straightforward because you should not have to play the guessing game when it comes to that. You can always take a quick look at the sizing chart just to be sure. Most customers are happy with the way these fit their feet.
Support

Support

Support is not the strong suit of these cleats, unfortunately. They have some great features that are designed to help give you a locked in and supportive feel, like the Flywire tech integrated into the uppers, but they just don't seem to work as well as most customers would have liked. There are quite a few reviewers who stated that their feet slide around too much in the foot chamber which can lead to you falling and injuring yourself. The lacing system helps give you a more customizable fit and enables you to get a snug feel, but that does not always get the job done, and some customers are left with a wobble foot inside their shoe.

One thing they can offer is excellent ankle support. The mid-top design comes up and helps keep your ankles more stabilized which can help you prevent injuries there. Unfortunately, it just does not seem to be enough for a lot of consumers.
Bottom Line

Bottom Line

If you need a pair of cleats to wear on game day or you are just playing some casual baseball with friends, the Nike Air Huarache 2KFilth's might be a great addition to your attire. They offer a lightweight and breathable upper to keep you fresh on those hot summer days, but they are also fairly durable and offer some pretty good flexibility. The cleats have some problems when it comes to supporting, some people saying that they slide around too much in their shoes, but there are still others who have had no issues with it. They have an affordable price tag which draws customers in, but the comfort and functionality keep them coming back for more.
