Davante Adams Teams Up With Eastbay To Give Back To Palo Alto High School Football Team

Davante Adams Teams Up With Eastbay To Give Back To Palo Alto High School Football Team

In March, Green Bay wide receiver Davante Adams went back to his alma mater, Palo Alto High School, to surprise the football team with some advice, inspiration, and – with Eastbay’s help – fresh gear.

Adams knows that giving back is about more than just the physical items you’re giving. It’s about supporting the next generation of athletes who are looking to build a name and a future for themselves both on and off the field. And it’s about the lasting impact sport can have on young people and their communities.

 

“My time here at Pally shaped who I am. All my experiences, from state championships to the occasional losses that we had, we got to learn from that. How to win, how to come together as a team. A lot of what took place here, I feel like it shaped me for who I am in the league. The things I’m able to achieve, I can attribute to this.

Sports is a huge thing. It holds communities together. It was the #1 outlet for people in my neighborhood growing up in East Palo Alto to kind of have an escape and a way to stay out of trouble.

To be in a position now where I’m blessed to be able to do what I love and receive opportunities like this to team up with Eastbay and make this happen for the kids – it’s life changing for them, and I know that. It brings me instant gratification to be able to do that for them.”

The Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro: Making The Game’s Fastest Even Faster

The Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro: Making The Game’s Fastest Even Faster

 

It was November 13, 2016. Dallas had the ball and was trailing by one point. Only 14 seconds remained on the clock and the ball was on Pittsburgh’s 32-yard line. Despite only having one timeout left, the offense decided to keep it on the ground and hand the ball to their star back, Ezekiel Elliott. As soon as he got the ball, Zeke saw daylight. He turned on the jets and burst through the middle of the line, catching his opponents off guard and giving them no chance to catch him as he raced into the end zone. He scored the game-winning touchdown and delivered a highlight that would be replayed for decades to come. Elliott lives for big moments like this, and he has the speed and work ethic to deliver time and time again. He also has the perfect cleat for these situations: the Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro.

Lightweight, but reliably supportive. Fast, but incredibly comfortable. The Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro is the football cleat that the most explosive players on the field have been waiting for. Let’s break down how it helps speedsters like Ezekiel Elliott make the biggest plays look effortless.

 

Distraction-Less Fit And Feel

Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro 1

When the game is on the line, there can’t be any distractions. No threads out of place or areas of discomfort. That’s why the Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro has a seamless one-piece bootie construction and an integrated tongue. It ensures that each player will get the perfect fit every time they lace up and allows them to focus on making that game-changing play.

 

Lightweight Breathability And Durability

Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro 2

Thanks to mesh and synthetic skins along the upper, the Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro cleats are never too heavy, hot, or flimsy. They are built to last and to keep elite athletes comfortable from the opening kickoff to the final play.

 

Total Support And Stability

Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro 5

The faster players accelerate and cut, the more at risk they are for injuries. Flywire cables around the midfoot of these cleats lock feet into place and provide total support. That way, players can stay confident while racing past the opposition.

 

Game-Changing Traction And Control

Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro 4

Playmakers like Zeke rarely run straight during a play. They need to cut, juke, and spin their way to greatness. If they can change direction even a split second faster, they can make their opponent look foolish. The Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro features revolutionary cleat studs that dig deep into the ground as they plant their feet, allowing them to deliver video-game-level moves.

 

Unbelievable Acceleration And Explosiveness

Nike Vapor Untouchable 3 Pro 3

From fast to untouchable, from good to unstoppable — the carbon fiber plate on these cleats is the pinnacle of electric speed. During every push-off, the plate propels the foot forward with speed, ensuring that skill players get that added burst they need to leave their opponent in the dust.
