Let’s leave a little big football alone and turn our attention to small grounds with artificial turf, where both professionals and amateurs love to run today. The best solution for artificial turf will be Nike centipedes, whose lineup in 2021 is replete with technological and stylish innovations that we could not just pass by.
So, we invite our readers to evaluate a review of the models that seem to us the most worthy of attention relative to their style, capabilities and technologies used from the popular Nike sports laboratory.
Updated Nike TiempoX Finale Turf
Here is a new generation of TiempoX, made of elastic and natural calfskin leather. The main feature of this new product is the inner frame, which adapts to the anatomical features of the foot, providing good fixation and natural movements. The use of synthetic microfiber has contributed to a reduction in the overall weight of the gaming shoe, which we note as a definite plus. Among other features, it is worth highlighting the presence of:
- Brio support cables;
- fixed elastic tongue;
- a lightweight stand in the heel area for fixing the heel;
- Lunarlon midsole;
- Foam in the heel to reduce impact.
Nike MercurialX Proximo II
And these are the top Nike centipedes, which can be purchased at a trusted football shoe store. The novelty guarantees a perfect adaptive fit, precise ball control in all weather conditions and excellent traction for maximum speed on natural and artificial turf. This is a great option for attacking players who love tech footwear. Among the technologies used, it is worth noting:
- Flyknit upper
- Flywire fixing threads combined with laces;
- Dynamic Fit elastic sock that fixes the ankle joint;
- Nike Grip system that prevents the foot from slipping inside the shoe;
- tongueless design;
- stitched sock;
- Cushioned Phylon outsole with cleverly contoured rubber outsole.
Nike Magista Ola II
After two professional models, it’s time to return to earth and show our readers what you can buy for an affordable price tag.
This model is lightweight for its price point, snug fit and excellent grip on synthetic turf. The streamlined shape is crafted from artificial leather, and the low-profile spiked outsole provides comfort during maneuvers and acceleration. Everything is simple and tasteful!
Nike TiempoX Rio IV
Another budget model from the classic series with a synthetic upper with a grooved surface and a thick rubber bottom. These Nike centipedes have good ball control and decent traction on the lawn. For its price tag, this model shows good results in terms of convenience and practicality of use, demonstrating along the way natural movements, despite the lack of advanced technologies. A great option for those who want to save money!
Nike MercurialX Victory VI
And finally, we will show a model of the middle price category, designed specifically for small areas with artificial turf. The upper of the shoe is made of high quality synthetic leather with special embossed overlays for better ball control. There is also a Dynamic Fit toe cap and a tongueless design. The low-profile outsole is crafted from durable yet flexible rubber with multiple studs for secure contact with the playing surface.
On this, perhaps, we will finish. Now you know what you can count on with a certain budget. There will be enough novelties for everyone, since it is simply unrealistic to list everything in this review, and there is no particular sense. We showed the most significant models for 2021, which, in terms of technology, differ little from the models of the previous season. We are waiting for new developments from the sports laboratory, and we say goodbye to this and go to prepare a new review for you.
