Designed for dynamic athletic strength and force, the new Nike Vapor Ultimate football cleat combines the sportswear giant’s most innovative plate and traction technology with advanced upper technology – Nike Flyknit. This new cleat delivers lightweight durability, lock-down fit, and increased awareness of the body’s movements to meet the pressures of the game and create Nike’s fastest game cleat yet. For football, a new NikeSkin overlay material works in concert with the Flyknit, providing additional durability, strength and protection in high-impact areas. Flywire cables, wrapping the arch of the foot, are also woven directly into the knit fabric to create a full one-piece upper engineered for strength and durability. The dynamic fit augments the natural motion of the Carbon V-plate. The Carbon V-plate is the culmination of intense athlete-driven research into football-specific speed, and the first plate inspired by, and developed from, Nike’s 3D printing and testing facilities—accelerating development and testing timelines, pushing faster innovation and supporting faster athletes.
The groundbreaking studs on the Nike Vapor Ultimate are designed for zero-slip traction in both acceleration and breaking. The pattern allows for optimal ignition off the back foot, hitting the precision cuts to avoid a tackle, and the explosive propulsion required to make a critical catch. At the forefoot of the plate, an aggressive tri-star traction system allows for more confident movement overall.
The Nike Vapor Ultimate is now available for pre-sale at Nike.
