Designed and crafted to deliver speed, performance and the ability to provide razor sharp handling, cutting and acceleration bursts. Lightweight plate for support and stability. Multidirectional cleat pattern for acceleration and quick changes in direction. Firm-ground (FG) cleats for use on short-grass fields that may be slightly wet but rarely muddy. TRACTION: The Mercurial Vapor IX soccer cleats has firm-ground molded cleats (FG) and features Vapor Traction, a multidirectional cleat pattern designed for instant acceleration and quick cuts in any direction. To lock down the planted foot while the other controls the ball, molded heel cleats provide durable traction, support and outstanding surface penetration. Nike Grip zones in the forefoot were inspired by racing spikes and allow for quick bursts of speed. DESIGN: For ultra-lightweight support and comfort, the Nike Vapor IX features soft, supple and extra-thin Teijin synthetic leather that conforms to the foot. An anatomically correct design mirrors the shape of the foot for an enhanced, snug fit. Also contributing to this boot's light weight is the full-length, two layers of glass fiber composite and direct inject TPU studs deliver unrivaled acceleration. The plate also helps transfer foot-planting energy directly to the cleats, reducing cleat pressure and providing instant support and stability. A contoured sockliner reduces cleat pressure even more and offers low-profile cushioning and support. THIS ITEM IS FOR MENS.
