Description of Nike Mercurial Vapor XII Elite FG
Full Flyknit upper – single piece upper
The upper is made from a single piece of Flyknit, being extremely flexible. It features microtexture for an improved grip on the ball, when moving in high speed. The full Flyknit 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 integrated 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
A thin contoured insole with NIKEGRIP tech, keeps your foot safely in place and enhances cushioning. Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 Elite FG Soccer Cleats has an outsole which is a combination of an internal pebac chassis and a two part external nylon soleplate. The two part external outsole reflects the shape of your feet, placed under your heel and in the front. The internal pebax chassis is engineered to provide the perfect balance of flexibility and responsiveness, and has a 3D pattern that lock down the insole. All this to enable the maximum power output.
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.
