For the biggest workout of your life, it should go without saying that you need to gear up in the best football cleats and gloves you’ve ever worn. So as the 2018 rookie class preps for their 40-yard dash, bench press, and position workouts, brands like Nike and adidas set to work in creating special, cutting-edge products.
Built specifically for some of the top athletes in the world, at the peak of their powers, this gear better be special — and it is. But the best part is you can get all of this too! So let’s break down what you’ll see the players rocking, and how it can elevate your own game.
Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Cleats
Speed in every direction, support at every level — the Nike Vapor Untouchable line has been revamped to redefine what a cleat is capable of. It all starts with the Vapor Untouchable 3 Elite cleat. Weighing in a full ounce lighter than its predecessor and featuring an extended ankle collar for unbelievable support and fit, you’ll see plenty of this cleat in Indy.
The Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro has a more traditional, low-cut feel, but is still packed full of next-level features. It’s got a carbon fiber plate for lightweight strength, circular knit cuff for incredible flexibility, and a TPU heel counter for total lockdown.
Both cleats are being offered in special Total Orange colorways designed specifically for the biggest scouting event in the world. They are bold and fresh, helping ensure that each player who laces up in them will demand the attention of every scout and coach in the stadium.
Nike Vapor Jet 5.0 Gloves
You’ll see that same Vapor colorway being rocked by plenty of skill position players during their receiving and coverage drills thanks to the Nike Vapor Jet 5.0 Gloves. These gloves have a truly maximized catching surface because of their ultra-sticky Magnigrip palm and have a breathable, stretch-woven back so the incoming rooks can stay cool when the spotlight starts shining their way.
adidas adiZero 5-Star 40 Cleats
Alright, look — we know which numbers you’ll be watching — 40 times. Clocking a super-fast 40 is the quickest way for athletes to turn heads, drop jaws, and make scouts double-check their stopwatches to make sure they’re working properly. And that pure, uncontainable speed is what the adidas adiZero 5-Star 40 cleats are all about. Checking in at only 5.0 oz, (only 5.0?!), these are game-changers for players looking to set new records during the 40-yard dash. They’ve got a SprintFrame plate with SprintStuds to propel you forward with max energy return, all while keeping you comfortable. These aren’t made to play in, they are made specifically for 40 times — and speedsters will be thanking themselves for choosing these in Indy when they see those milliseconds shaved from their score. If you want to rock this look during games, we have the same colorway available in the adidas adiZero 5-Star 7.0 cleats as well.
So make sure to keep an eye out for all this gear in Indy when the biggest scouting event in football kicks off Feb. 27. And remember, you can get all this gear for yourself, too. These products are musts for any football player who is determined to push their game to new heights.
