Endeavor for excellence. Fit and comfort against punishing compressive forces. Tensile. Aerodynamic. Permeability. NIKE makes the mark to ensure the ultimate football athlete achieve ultimate performance. In the course of redesign and reinvention, Nike Football Shoes evolves into the essential companion to each game delivering speed, agility and precision with cleats created to match the player’s position and field type as well.
Nike Football Shoes come in different heights to accommodate the player’s needs. Linemen prefer the ankle extension provided by high tops as they benefit from the extra support it gives especially for numerous lateral movements which puts too much pressure on the ankles during the course of the game. Skill players such as defensive backs, running backs, wide receivers and quarterbacks, on the other hand go for the mid-cut shoe as it offers more support and allows maneuverability at the same time. However, for quick cuts on the field, some players opt for the low cuts since its lightweight thus providing extra maneuverability.
Nike Football Shoes’ uppers are made of either leather or synthetic materials or a combination of both. Leathers offer greater durability, comfort and breathability but are more expensive than synthetics, which are lighter than leather. Latest innovations in technology gives each player a Phyon midsole with a conform sockliner that is lighter and shapes to each foot for secure, responsive cushioning, an outsole made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) or the new 7-stud Vapor for a lighter, faster control system and a Zero space technology for a weightless feel and a customized fit.
Moreover, Nike Football Shoes are of two types depending on what type of field you’re playing on, namely: molded and detachable. Molded cleats are attached permanently to the outsole on the bottom of the shoes and are often used by players who use turf fields for they provide spring and traction and a better grip on harder turf surfaces, while detachable cleats can be used to fit various field conditions on all types of grass, be it hard and dry or wet and sloppy and of course, as the name implies, can be removed and replaced with a wrench so you can customize your shoes easily.
