• Synthetic upper
Full synthetic upper - single piece upper
The upper is made from a single piece of synthetic, being extremely flexible. It features microtexture for an improved grip on the ball, when moving in high speed. The design covers the entire boot and you foot, following the movements of your foot - creating a feel of a second layer of skin, a truly unique fit and incomprehensible level of comfort. The upper has been treated with NIKESKIN and ACC (All Conditions Control). NIKESKIN is an ultra thin PU layer that has been combined with performance mesh, to allow for a light breathable and tight fit. ACC is an outer coating that enhances the touch and control of the football, in all weather conditions. The inside of the boot has been lined with high quality material. In the heel area it is lined with suede like material, that ensures an improved lockdown. Perforation in this area also adds to the breathability.
Re-engineered outsole for superior grip
The outsole is made with a two piece configuration, that reflects that shape of your feet. They are placed under the heel and the front foot, respectively. This configuration is all about offering the right mix of flexibility and responsiveness - resulting in the maximum power output. The insole is thin and designed to offer cushioning and stop slipping.
Stud configuration for acceleration and deceleration.
In the modern version of the beautiful game, much is decided by your ability to run fast and change direction quickly. But equally important is the ability to stop quickly. Using advanced computing, Nike engineered a new stud configuration. Pressure point and flow of power were mapped, different studs and shapes were tested and analyzed. Eventually Nike came up with the ideal combination of placement and shape. They have been slightly angled for improved grip, both when acceleration and change of direction. Equally effective when stopping.
This is an AG boot specially made for artificial grass surfaces.
Note:Nike informs that the chrome color on the outsole may wear off.
