Nike continues to push the limits of innovation and design by debuting its third football cleat built using 3D printing technology.

Last year, Nike's "40 Yard Dash Project" redefined the game with new 3D plate construction built for linear speed through the Nike Vapor Laser Talon cleat. In January Nike unveiled its new 3D printed Nike Vapor Carbon 2014 Elite Cleat as part of the NFL Nike Silver Speed Collection for Super Bowl XLVIII hosted this year. This week, Nike has come up with a new Nike Vapor HyperAgility Cleat, featuring a re-engineered amplified, tri-star stud shapes that Nike claims will enable maximum speed on turf while creating the optimal traction needed to decelerate and change direction quickly.

The cleat's upper is constructed using dynamic Nike Flywire cables, individually hand threaded through the plate and under the foot, providing maximum lockdown to prevent slippage inside the cleat. The mid-cut design also features a proprioceptive compression collar providing a closer fit as well as protection from the studs.

Engineered to improve an athlete's time during a 5-10-5 or 'shuttle' drill, the overall design was heavily influenced by the original Vapor Laser Talon cleat and it's performance during the 40 Yard Dash Project.

Like the Vapor Laser Talon before it, the Vapor HyperAgility once again adopts Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology in the production of its 3D-printed cleat plate. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) is a 3D printing technology that uses high-powered lasers to fuse small particles of materials into a 3-dimentional shape. It allows designers to make updates within hours, instead of months, to create fully functional plate and traction system at a fraction of the weight.
