Nike Air Huarache 2KFilth Review
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.

Some durability issues
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
