While we wait to see whether or not there will be an NFL season to look forward to, here’s a look at one of the new Nike football cleats you’ll see hit the turf if play resumes. The Alpha Speed D 3/4 is detachable and designed to meet the standards of the modern day hybrid athlete. Sporting a 3/4 silhouette, the Alpha Speed is constructed of synthetic leather with a durable cast urethane design throughout collar. Fit is enhanced by an EVA foam sockliner with Poron forefoot. Finishing up below is a lightweight TPU outsole with a seven-stud plate for lightweight control. The cleat weighs in at about 11.6 ounces.
While this shoe isn’t officially linked to Larry Fitzgerald, this Cardinals-like colorway would look right at home on the feet of Arizona’s superstar receiver. The cleat features a white leather base with heavy medium maroon accenting along the ankle, heel, tongue and Swoosh branding. You can pick up the Nike Alpha Speed D 3/4 for your off-season training and upcoming season today at Eastbay.
Available: Nike Alpha Speed D 3/4 – White/Medium Maroon
