Nike Mercurial Vapor XIV Academy FG/MG - Chlorine Blue/Laser Orange/Marina
Fast by nature, the Nike Mercurial Vapor 14 Academy FG/MG sees you sprinting away from the opposition with ease thanks to a new, more comfortable upper and an innovative soleplate that provides instant response. Its stripped-down design is inspired by the wings of a dragonfly, using minimal materials with maximum efficiency for fast, streamlined performance. Grippy texturing provides superior control over the ball, and the upper once again wraps around the bottom of the cleat for a true 360-degree fit. For acceleration, a stiff internal chassis helps you explode off the mark, while the next-gen soleplate features a grooved central spine and a tweaked hybrid cleat configuration for outrageous speed in every direction on natural and artificial surfaces.
Starting with “The Nike” back in 1970, the Swoosh’s designs have always led the way when it comes to combining style and performance.
Their modern range includes the ever-popular Mercurial for speed, as worn by the legend that is Cristiano Ronaldo, along with the touch-focused Phantom GT. Or, if you prefer a classic cleat, the more traditional Tiempo and Premier are your go-to options.
Nike offer cleats for all types of surface and levels of play, including their exclusive Anti-Clog editions with soleplates designed specifically for wet, muddy pitches.

Ground Type Guide
Selecting the correct sole plate for the surface you are playing on is crucial, not only for the performance and longevity of your cleats, but also to avoid the risk of injury.
Using an outsole that isn't designed specifically for the surface on which you are playing may cause premature wear and/or damage that will not be deemed as a fault of manufacture and will prevent the retailer accepting them for a refund or exchange.
Cleats with Firm Ground soleplates are only to be used on natural short-grass surfaces that is firm underfoot but may be slightly wet.
Designed specifically for this playing surface, they offer acceleration, comfort and enhanced traction, dispersing stud pressure evenly across the foot.
FG soleplates are fixed (not removable) and are used worldwide; wetter countries tend to use them spring to autumn.
FG cleats are not to be used on artificial ground (AG) surfaces as the construction is not designed for the extra friction.
FG cleats used on AG surfaces will invalidate the manufacturer’s warranty.
