What Pros Wear: Robinson Cano (Bat, Batting Gloves, Cleats, Glove, Sunglasses, Guards)
Robinson Cano loves Wilson’s synthetic lightweight Superskin and has implemented it in his 1786 using Wilson’s custom builder. Here’s our article about the Cano/Wilson signing with his EXACT specs to guide in your own custom creation. Wilson has referred to it as the RC24, but you can see in the photo that it is a true 1786.

Maui Jim!? Jeez Robbie ya ever heard of Oakley?? The first Maui Jim’s WPW has ever seen on a ballfield. I would love to know how these came about.
The well-documented move to NB for Cano was the right choice. These are as sexy as any cleat in baseball. Check out more looks here.
Cano has his own signature cut from both SSK and Sam Bat, and both are available online.
We reported this in the pre-season. He’s already shown a few different colorways, which you can see throughout the profile, including the ones he is wearing during BP (below).
Cano and teammate Nelson Cruz wear one of these. The only thing like it for sale that we could find is here. The Belgard website is in Japanese and can be viewed here. Looks like there’s an order form, but I couldn’t decipher it.
Belgard is protecting Cano’s front leg, too.
ProHitter in White
Cano also wears a ProHitter hitting aid on his thumb to keep the bat in his fingertips and maximize whip. These are worn by hundreds of Major League hitters and are very available.
