Next month, the NFL will begin their annual observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by allowing players, coaches and officials to wear pink-accented gear on the field. While these new Alpha Speed TD Nike football cleats aren’t directly linked to Breast Cancer Awareness with any official markings, you can bet that you’ll see them hit the field plenty in October.
The molded cleat features a predominantly hot pink performance synthetic base with a black durable urethane cast design along the collar and heel. Branding on the tongue is also done in pink, while black takes care of Swoosh logos on the side panels. Below, a molded pink TPU plate allows lightweight control while playing.

With football season right around the corner and practices currently kicking off across the country, the latest designs are arriving at Eastbay. Nike Football’s latest is the Nike Alpha Speed TD.
The multi-purpose Alpha Speed is designed for the ultimate traction on both wet and dry conditions, thanks to its aggressive stud configuration. The molded fit of the upper keeps things locked-down and offers support for all types of players thanks to a durable cast urethane collar. For superb fitment and comfort, an EVA foam sockliner with Poron forefoot was chosen. Added protection in the toe area comes from a reinforced toe bumper, but with its seamless design, chaffing and irritation shouldn’t be an issue.
A number of colorways are now available of the Nike Alpha Speed TD, including a couple of shiny patent-finished models that will turn heads as fast as they perform.

With training for new football seasons beginning, Nike is rolling out their newest gridiron footwear. The latest cleat from the Nike camp to drop is the Alpha Speed TD, a lightweight cleat that delivers top-notch traction, a locked-in fit and unforgiving support in a lightweight model built to withstand the rigors of a football season.
Comfort in the Alpha Speed TD is enhanced with the addition of foam in the collar, quilted foam throughout the tongue and forefoot, and foam pods around the Achilles. There’s also a seamless internal toe bumper to protect your toes and reduce irritation and chaffing.
Living up to its name, the Alpha Speed TD features a molded plastic outsole with a 12-cleat configuration that can perform on wet and dry surfaces. The outsole combines cone-shaped and supplemental forefoot studs for excellent traction, along with rectangle heel studs for maximum surface penetration, allowing for effortless cutting and instant acceleration.
The three-quarter silhouette provides additional ankle protection during intense play and multi-directional movement. And the synthetic materials used for the cleat’s construction are both lightweight and durable.
