Nike and Calvin Johnson, JR. Unveil the CJ81 Elite TD Cleat

Nike has unveiled the Nike CJ81 Elite TD cleat for one of the most dynamic athletes today in modern football.

Supplying the perfect cleat for a 6’5″, 236 lb wide receiver with phenomenal standards was no easy feat. It requires gear that combines the dynamic fusion of natural movement-inspired construction with a lockdown supportive system and a hybrid collar, all to accomodate Johnson’s explosive style of play. The result manifested in Calvin’s signature cleat, the CJ81 TD, which introduced a lightweight proprioceptive collar, dynamic midfoot arch strap, diamond star pattern upper, and a full-length speed plate made of that now-famous Pebax material.

The Nike CJ81 TD is available today at Nike.com.
