Nike Vapor 12 Academy MG Multi-Ground Soccer Cleat


A synthetic upper is the best option for the Nike Vapor 12 Academy cleat. Why? Well, because cleat is a type of shoe used in high energy activities. Furthermore, the feet are very prone to sweating, and what you need is an upper with moisture-wicking properties like this.

Synthetic construction also offers great comfort and support, and don’t forget about the textile lining below the upper surface. The textile lining lends a helping hand in the breathability of the cleat and a smooth feel when wearing it.


The multigrain speed system is just Nike’s beautiful way of saying that the outsole of the cleat is capable of operating on any ground. Soft, firm, turf ground, indoor and outside, on artificial grass, natural grass, tall grass, and everything in between.

The chevron and conical studs on the surface of the outsole are also there to help with versatility, traction and to get a better grip of the surface where you are on. Once those studs sink their spike in the ground, you’re in good hands.


The cleats are not famous for their comfort as they are used for about two hours, but it is not necessary for these two hours to be a terrible experience.

The cushioned footbed helps significantly in the comfort of the Nike Vapor 12 Academy cleat as well as the anchored tongue that not only stays in place but also provides a consistent fit and comfort as well. But let’s not forget that the Nike cleat has a micro-textured upper.


You’re in luck. The Nike Vapor 12 Academy comes in several colour combinations. Eight to be exact. If you’re more into bright colours you should check out the grey and bright crimson colour combination, and if you’re looking for darker tones that won’t get dirty that easily, try the black and orange combo of the cleats.


  • Anchored tongue
  • Outsole wrap on the toe area
  • Micro-textured upper
  • Circular studs located on the outsole
  • Very comfortable


  • Too narrow fit
