Have a real thorough look below:


Gargoyle Rover

Wright wears the sunglasses he’s wearing in the feature, the Gargoyle Rover flip-ups.  They’re available at the above link.

Unrelated, but had to post this:

VITAMIN WATER “David Wright his Wrongs” from Giraldi Media on Vimeo.

Despite the much-deserved ribbing he most definitely got in the clubhouse for that trainwreck, the commercial (and his 0.5% stake in VitaminWater) netted him $20 million dollars when the company was sold to Coca-Cola for $4.1 billion dollars in 2007.



Louisville Slugger Prime C243 Ash (other C243 models at that link)

Wright has been swinging the C243 Ash most recently, a change from the player-exclusive W310 he was using last we profiled him.  The C243 Prime Ash is available as are several other C243s, an indicator that its one of the most popular turning models in all of baseball, not just professional (C271 and a couple others are up there to0).

Note: We were able to confirm with Louisville Slugger that Wright predominantly swings Ash, but has mixed in Birch in games as well.

In the past, Wright has swung the W310 you see below.  We found a forum called Baseball Fever where “BMH” explains Wright’s bat model:

“The W310 is a model made for David Wright. It has a Mc69 handle (Brian McCann model) and a S318 barrel. The Mc69’s knob is a cross between a C271 and a M110. The closest model we offer in store line is probably the S318, it won’t have the flair in the knob though.”

Batting Gloves

Exclusive Nikes and Nike N1 Fuse (seen in the feature gallery)

Wright’s exclusive Nikes are like nothing we’ve seen (see the orange ones here).  They seem to have a similar design to the Diamond Elite Pro IIs.


Nike Air Huarache Pro (seen above in an exclusive colorway)

Bat Wrap

Assorted Lizard Skins

Wright is one of the pioneering pro ballplayers for Lizard Skins, a “Dura Soft” Polymer bat wrap that many pros have been seen using.  Most recently, he’s been wrapping his C243 with a black Lizard Skin, available online.

Leg Guard

Evoshield in Blue

As you can see in the photos above, Wright wears the blue Evoshield leg and foot guard religiously.  (Also notice his Nike Air MVP Pro custom cleats)

      Hey Eric, thanks for checking it out. Unfortunately I can never find anything of that sort, aside from game used stuff from those players online. They don’t personalize those things yet. Bummer, I know.

    his new batting gloves are HOT, hope Nike offers one of the two variations (orange/blue/white for home, and blue/orange/silver road). Would’ve also loved to have a pair of his black ones. Too bad there’s no way to custimize (yet…)!

    the batting gloves are just Diamond Elite Pro II’s with the background on the strap showing instead of the diamond elite
