Soccer players are often bogged down by dirt build-up and mud that can greatly slow them down during play time, making the Nike AntiClog Traction football boots an innovative piece of equipment designed to eliminate mud clogging. The cleats feature specially formatted spikes that better grip the ground and reduce dirt build-up sticking to the sole of the shoe, that can greatly increase the weight the player is carrying.

The Nike AntiClog boots are a stylish pair of high top cleats with an embedded sock style ankle upper. The taller length of the boot keeps ankles safe and dry. The shoes feature Nike's exclusively designed sole plates that resist water and turn compliant when in contact with mud. This allows the soles to become slippery so that dirt and mud cannot cling to it.
