“This is a guy I’d let hit third and date my daughter.  There might have been two of those in my 39 years (in baseball) that even come to mind.”  –Clint Hurdle

Is catching it with your eyes open just too easy, Cutch?


Nike SHA/DO Elite J 6-Finger

Cutch wears a custom Nike with the Swingman logo stitched into the thumb, a 12.75″ Trap web that was available for a time from Nike for $500.

Oakley RadarLock Pitch

Cutch’s Oakleys are custom, and you can get pretty close through the custom builder, but you can’t get his yellow earsocks.

Here’s Cutch’s specs:

  • Frame: Polished Black
  • Lens: Fire Iridium Pitch
  • Icon: Team Yellow
  • Earsock: Team Yellow (can’t get these through the custom builder)
  • Lug/Band: Polished White

Clicking the link above will show you all of Oakley’s color options for the RadarLock, or you can make your own with the custom builder.

I guess the Pirates where the same jerseys for both home and away games sometimes?  Either way, both sleeves are available at those links.

Phiten Tornado in Black/Yellow

You can see Cutch’s Phiten Tornado necklace in all of the photos.  This necklace is available online and in many different colors.

Marucci Cutch22

Check out some WPW-exclusive info on Cutch’s bat here.  His exact model is available at that link above.


Batting Gloves

Nike Swingman Batting Gloves

He is one of Griffey’s Swingmen, wearing exclusive batting gloves and cleats with Junior’s likeness.  McCutchen’s gloves are exclusive, and at the moment there are no Swingman gloves out on the market right now.  We expect them to come back around for next season, but probably not Cutch’s.

Nike Air Swingman MVP 2

Like the photo we lifted from McCutchen’s Instagram account and his All Star exclusives, Cutch has been wearing the Swingman MVP 2, a model that we have yet to see surface online.  Let us know if anything turns up.  Also see Adam Jones’ MVP 2s if you love these.

Leg Guard

Evoshield Leg Guard in Black w/ Yellow Straps

McCutchen wears an exclusive Evoshield leg guard with no protection over his foot, just like in the feature.  He was so proud of it, Cutch threw it on Instagram for us to drool on.

    the cleats he wore at the home run derby are the new swingmans that a few select guys including jason heyward wore for Jackie Robinson Day

      Thanks Jake but that’s not the glove. I appreciate you looking.

    Sunglasses are wrong. He wears fire iridium lenses.

    • mike8

      Can you show me how you know that? A link, a photo? I get a lot of people telling me I’m wrong but if I’m going to change it I want to at least see where you’re getting the information. Thanks for helping out and let me know if you have something to show me.

        Usually if you just search for oakley fire iridium radar lenses, they will come right up. If that doesnt work just go to and find the lenses.

      • mike8

        I know how to find the glasses, I’m asking you if you have proof that Andrew McCutchen wears fire iridium.

    The glove is a Nike ShaDo Elite glove, currently only available in Japan. Nike has a ShaDo line available for High School players in japan, and currently McCutchen and Matt Kemp are using the Elite models in the MLB (they make two lower level models as well). They can be found on Rakuten for approximately $550. Here’s more information on the line:

    Sorry, the exact model is BF1489 Nike ShaDo Elite

    August 14, 2012 at 7:59 am

    • mike8

      The glove you see in the feature photo is the BF1489 but McCutchen’s is not the BF1489. I used it because it was the closest thing—but his has a different web. I do appreciate you checking us out and for letting us know what you know.

  5. JD

    Hey mike, you’re right…digging alittle further (and hitting some of my glove contacts), Andrew McCutchen uses a ShaDo custom…FB, and traditional six finger trap. But it is a ShaDo!

    August 14, 2012 at 8:54 am

    • mike8

      Yep, you nailed it. Whenever you have any info that I don’t, please hit the comment section like you did. I just do grunt-work, so if you have contacts that could help make this more accurate, please do continue to share. Thanks JD

    is his sleeve mainly the phiten now, or is he kindof hit and miss with the brand

    Mccutchen is wearing a black and yellow glove in Seattle today. I’m not sure what brand.

      Do you know what exact size bat he uses?

  14. joe

    If you search for oakley radar ear socks on ebay they have the yellow ear socks

    August 6, 2013 at 2:20 pm

  15. Concon

    You may already know this but Mccutchen’s glove is now up for sale on Nike’s website. The lacing looks like a darker yellow than the one in the pictures above

    • mike8

      good looks man, thanks for the heads up

      October 1, 2013 at 5:42 pm

  16. Luis

    He doesn’t wear the evoshield sleeve. From the games that I’ve watched he wears the phiten sleeve

    May 1, 2014 at 7:17 pm

  17. Luis

    You can find a lot of good recent photos on getty images. Just type in “Andrew mccutchen getty images” on Google and go to it. They do pretty much every game of the year

  18. Jamel Vilmont

    Does anyone. Know what exact bat size he uses?

  19. Shane

    Are his Oakley lens red iridium or fire iridium?

    June 29, 2014 at 8:56 pm

  20. Donovan

    It appears as though most of these pictures of Cutch show him wearing a Phiten arm sleeve as well as EvoShield.

    August 20, 2014 at 8:47 pm

  21. Donovan

    At home, I mean.

    what is the cross sweat band cutch has been wearing on his arm? it is yellow

    September 30, 2014 at 6:34 pm

  23. Joey

    Yeah Mike, it is their alternate jerseys because they wear white at home and gray away. I wonder if Cutch will rock some Evoshield digi camo this year?

    March 1, 2015 at 5:23 am

Love it, hate it, proof we're wrong? Let the world know.
