The Nike Vapor 360 fielding glove is a baseball glove that was borne out of Nike's Baseball team's meeting with Colorado Rockies star Carlos Gonzalez. It is said that Gonzalez picked up a mint-green Mercurial football boot -- popularized by Real Madrid soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo -- and said "make my glove like this." A huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalez wanted the glove to be inspired by Ronaldo's combination of flash, style and substance.

Armed with this insight, Nike Baseball's senior designer Matthew Hudson, who was previously a footwear designer, set out to create the Nike Vapor 360 glove.

The Nike Vapor 360 is an excellent option for outfielders looking for a lightweight, responsive fielding glove that fits snugly but also feels sturdy. The glove is available online through Nike's official website.
