  • The Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 Elite Firm Ground wears a unique design that deviates from the usual Mercurial. The Swoosh has made a radical move with this new-generation cleat that is crafted for players that have speed as their best ally.
  • For its upper, Nike has fitted the firm ground version of the Mercurial Vapor 12 Elite with a one-piece microtextured Flyknit. The material offers a snug wrap around the foot. It also ushers in a clean and close ball touch that gives wearers better control of the ball. Meanwhile, the ACC (All Conditions Control) ensures that touch is kept consistent no matter the weather conditions.
  • This soccer cleat also utilizes a Nikegrip top cloth that helps give a locked-in fit. The fit is further enhanced by a central lacing system that also allows for some personalization. Additionally, a heel lining also helps provide stability for the foot.
  • The base of this soccer cleat highlights a podular plate that is lightweight and functional. This type of sole unit mimics the shape of the foot for the best possible fit. Chevron studs attached to the plate deliver traction that facilitates quick moves on the firm ground.
