The Technology inside the Nike Vapor 12 Elite


By: Joel Caceres

The Nike Vapor 12 Elite has a 360 flyknit upper. This cleat is a speed boot, and can be argued to be the best cleat right now. It weighs about 7 ounces, which is really light and it almost feels like you don’t have anything on your foot. This boot also has ACdC ( All Conditions Control) which allows the same control in all conditions of weather. The flyknit is a very light material, that is perfect for a speed boot like this one. This relates to engineering because engineers had to design a shape for the cleat to be light and very responsive.
