Good to know

  • The Nike HypervenomX Proximo II DF Turf features an upper that is lined with FlyKnit material offering a seamless, lightweight and breathable fit. Further comfort and stability are provided by Flywire cables installed into the mesh upper ensuring that wearers get a tight wrap around the foot.
  • Similar to most Nike cleats, this cleat also utilizes the All Conditions Control (ACC) technology on its upper. This feature is set to enhance ball control by allowing a clean touch on the ball in all weather conditions. This cleat is also fitted with the Dynamic Fit collar, which links the lower leg and the foot for that added support and stability.
  • Another significant feature of this cleat is the Nike Zoom Air unit. With this heel unit, wearers will experience the increased responsiveness as well as the added cushioning on the foot that will allow for swift movements on the pitch.

Nike manufactured the HypervenomX Proximo II DF Turf with a mid-cut design that features the Dynamic Fit collar for a comfortable, sock-like fit. The cleat offers a customized fit with a firm lockdown because of the flexible FlyKnit material lining the upper. This cleat comes in the standard sizes for men. It runs quite narrow but fits true to size.

Nike's HypervenomX Proximo II DF Turf features rubber cleats that provide exceptional grip on synthetic surfaces. With an aggressive traction pattern, the cleat performs with impressive speed and agility. The diamond-shaped nubs on the sole unit allow the cleat to hold up well on abrasive surfaces.

Fitted with a FlyKnit mesh upper construction, the HypervenomX Proximo II DF Turf provides a breathable, featherweight and stretchable fit. The FlyKnit material's flexibility works well with the Flywire cables integrated into the laces, providing an adaptable locked-down fit for any player's comfort.

The upper also utilizes the 3D texturing that is extremely reactive and flexible, facilitating an improved touch on the ball. With ACC technology alongside a thinner striking area, strikes are made with more precision and power.
