Calvin Johnson aka Megatron has an elite game, making spectacular plays and putting up league leading numbers. So it’s clear, Johnson is a beast on the field with a demanding work ethic. Nike took that in consideration when crafting his latest cleat, the CJ81 Elite TD as he states…

Nike took the time to understand exactly what I need in my cleats — from the way I move, to how much support I need, to the way it feels. My new CJ81 Elite TD cleat is built for hardcore performance and it looks amazing.

Nike puts it this way…

His size, speed and quickness demand a cleat that offers full range of motion like a low-cut version with the performance benefits and ankle support of a mid. With this in mind, Nike designers created a new lightweight proprioceptive collar that allows full freedom of movement without sacrificing lateral ankle stability and support – a mid-cut that plays like a low.

The performance elements on the cleats include…

Dynamic midfoot arch strap created to provide side-to-side and heel lock-down as well as cradled support. The strap transitions from the internal medial side of the foot to the outside lateral side, providing a more customized fit around the arch, while the open mesh panel allows for more ventilation in this area. To support his powerful movement, he also needs additional toe and ankle protection so the lock-down fit from the strap helps with those quick, sharp cuts.

The diamond star pattern across the forefoot and side panel of the cleat upper provides a purposeful body-led solution that allows the upper to conform to the foot providing a more customized fit. The tongue also features a large diamond star perforation to help keep the foot cool and dry.

The full-length speed plate includes a Pebax® outsole for lightweight durable strength and a 12-cleat pattern for precision traction and control on real or artificial turf. Four supplemental studs in the forefoot help to enhance traction and when making quick cuts.

Pick these up from Nike dealers and Nike.com US in Detroit Lions battle blue and silver.
