The PRO12 Pattern

Colorway

The Rawlings Heart of the Hide PRO12-6TI is made out of a leather color that is one of the most underrated, underused colors that any company offers – timberglase.

Just like another underused counterpart, Wilson’s orange tan, timberglase is one of the most beautiful colors its respective company makes. This is especially true now, as timberglase is now a darker shade of brown that, in my opinion, looks even better than the former, lighter timberglase color.
