What you see above is a Russell Wilson PE version of the Nike Alpha Menace. This Nike football cleat is said to be Nike’s lightest and most innovative football cleat that they have to offer. The cleat comes with features such as the multidirectional traction and the 14 studs on the outsole that will help Wilson get to where he needs to go, fast! Above you will see two different colorway, both which will match up nicely with Wilson’s team colors. Russell Wilson branding on the tongue and”DANGERUSS WILSON” branding on the heels gives the cleats a nice PE touch.
“We used an algorithm that dictated what the lightest, strongest structure was, and we built the plate based on that information,” Nike Sr. Inline Innovator and lead footwear designer Jeff Rasmussen explained. After analyzing data, designers moved away from the usual carbon fiber for a combination of different textiles for the outsole. The upper is comprised of Flyknit and TPU yarns for a lightweight lockdown fit.
“This cleat means everything to me,” Russell Wilson said. “When you’re a young kid you dream of certain accomplishments and things you want to do in the sports world, and this is everything that I dreamed of.”
