"Nike Football’s most advanced cleat ever, the Zoom Alpha Talon Cleat leverages the most innovative technologies to meet the performance needs of every position," Nike said in a press release. "Working with elite athletes, Nike designers delivered improved footing at full speed with an innovative on-demand, adaptive traction system. The interior cleats in the forefoot extend when full pressure is applied for more traction when needed and retract when not. The Air Zoom Alpha Talon cleat also features a Flywire upper for lightweight lockdown, a low-profile cushioning system for comfort, and Nike Pro Deflex padding around the ankle for breathable protection."
The 2011 Nike Pro Combat System of Dress will debut during bowl games including:
- Boise State Broncos: Las Vegas, Dec. 22, 2010
- Florida Gators: Tampa Bay, Jan. 1, 2011
- Oregon Ducks: Phoenix, Arizona, Jan. 10, 2011
Texas Christian University (TCU) will be debuting the new Air Zoom Alpha Talon cleat with a new version of their current 2010 Nike Pro Combat Uniform in Pasadena, California, Jan. 1, 2011.
