Since 2019, George Kittle has been wearing the Nike Alpha Menace Elite 2. Kittle dabbled with other high-top cleats in the past but has seemed to fall in love with these. The Alpha Menace Elite 2 is a high-cut cleat built for the big skills. It has plenty of support and even a strap to lock down your foot. For the cut of the cleat, it’s actually pretty lightweight. The upper is built from Nike’s light, but tough, flyknit and molds to your foot while you play. Lastly, this cleat has the alpha traction plate. This plate is a favorite among bigger guys because it’s wider, has longer studs, and is super strong. This cleat is perfect for guys like Kittle who need support but also like to keep things lightweight.
Since Kittle is one of Nike’s primary athletes, he gets plenty of unique colorways. The feature photo of this post is a special pair for Kittle. They feature the Niners’ scarlet, gold, white and a swoosh inspired by the Joker’s smile. These are just one of many cool cleats for Kittle and I’m sure we’ll see more soon.
Get yourself some Alpha Menace Elite 2s at Dick’s for $115-$200.
