Typically, a player will evaluate a firm ground cleat based on the upper material and design and the cleat pattern. The "Upper" is the top of the shoe and is made of either a synthetic material or from leather. Many manufacturers will cater the Upper to the type of player using the shoe. This includes:
• weight of the shoe
• enhancements to the soccer shoe to promote better
touch, control or power for the soccer player.
The cleat of the shoe provides the necessary traction while running in a soccer practice or game. Most cleats are either a conical or bladed shape. Each one has its advantages in how it provides grip and leverage when running and cutting from side-to-side. It is recommended to find a cleat pattern that feels best on your foot and reduces any uncomfortable pressure points. For younger players, a rubber outsole (cleat) is recommended because it is a softer material and will still provide the necessary traction.

So, although not on the Nike marketing radar right now SoccerPro can assure that the Hypervenom is still a force on the soccer pitch. Check out The Instep and... read the rest!
