Following this morning's reveal of the new NFL jerseys, Nike previews their new Vapor Talon Elite football cleat in a series of vivid NFL team colorways. 

Shown in both low-cut and three-quarter profiles, the Vapor Talon Elite is one of Nike's most technologically advanced cleats to date. The cleat features a Hyperfuse upper with strategic venting for breathability while maintaining strength and support. Additionally, a Phylon midsole, carbon-fiber midfoot shank and Pebax plate bolster the cleat's lightweight performance capabilities. "Talon-like" design cues appear under the plate, where a shark tooth pyramid pattern in the heel and forefoot, shovel cleats in the sidewall and Talon cleats at the toe improve both acceleration and lateral traction. 

The Nike Vapor Talon Elite appears here in the colorways of several NFL teams, including the Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, San Diego Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, Cincinnati Bengals, Tennessee Titans, Chicago Bears, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders.
