Sports column: Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 soccer cleats essential for advanced play

Nicole Hawk, Guest Reporter

A good pair of soccer cleats are essential to playing soccer. The right type of cleats can determine how athletes perform. So it’s important to get good and comfortable cleats. 

Having good cleats that support feet and feel good while running is very important. The support cleats provide is important because if the shoe doesn’t fit well feet are going to hurt and calves will be on fire.

If cleats are too big or small this is something that can cause problems while playing the game.  Soccer cleats should provide little room at the top of the shoe, but not too much where it feels like it’s going to fall off. The reason cleats have to be fitted is because then player get a better feel of the ball without having to constantly look at the ball.  

The Nike Mercurial Vapor 13 Elite MDS FG, give feet good support, are comfortable to play in for a long time, fit very well and aren’t too big or small. They also look cool with any uniforms and have all types of designs and textures. The greatest thing about these shoes is the bottom of the shoe is rugged and does not come off easily. Compared to the Nike Mercurial Vapor 12 Club Neymar Jr. FG soccer cleats, the Vapor 13 elites are by far the better option. They just outshine the Vapor 12 club. They don’t rip on the bottom, fit feet better and are everything anyone could want in a soccer cleat. The Vapor 13 elites have it all.
