In January 2016, Russell Wilson inked another deal Nike after a season of wearing Under Armour. Since then, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback has gotten his own Nike trainers and now, he's getting player exclusive football cleats.
Designed for versatile, explosive and multidirectional players like Russell Wilson, the Nike Alpha Menace is the brand's lightest and most innovative football cleat. “In terms of cleats we’ve made before, this is our antagonist,” says Jeff Rasmussen, Nike Sr. Inline Innovator and the lead footwear designer for the Alpha Menace Elite. “It has a dangerous, gritty vibe.”
With 14 studs on the outsole, the Alpha Menace Elite provides multidirectional traction— an attribute Wilson needs to dodge opponents and stop on a dime. Coming in two Seahawks-inspired colorways, Wilson's player exclusive cleats read "DANGERUSS WILSON" on the heels.
The Nike Alpha Menace will be available for a limited pre-order on March 27.
