The first-ever College Football Playoffs are set, and it's a major innovation for the future of the sport following years of complaints about the BCS system. Making up the top four are Oregon, Alabama, Florida State, and Ohio State, which just happen to all be Nike sponsored teams, leaving a perfect opportunity for the Swoosh to debut something innovative of their own.
Each team will be outfitted with the all-new Nike Vapor Untouchable cleat, which they are calling their its most innovative football cleat to date. The Vapor Untouchable is the first Flyknit cleat made with recycled polyester yarn, with each pair being the equivalent of five recycled plastic bottles. Flyknit makes the upper, and is supported by Flywire, a Nike Skin overlay, and a Carbon-V Plate which all come together for 360 degree support system for the foot.
Along with the Vapor Untouchable cleats, each team in the playoffs will be wearing Nike Mach Speed uniforms with special design cues and enhancements. Each uniform comes with a unique Nike Pro Combat Hypercool baselayer design, all-new Nike Vapor Knit gloves, and a fractal diamond-color Swoosh on the front of the uniform to represent the chase of the National Championship.
