So what I did was I used one boot of Nike Anti-Clog and one normal Nike soleplate, just to get a comparison. It has been raining couple days in a row so the field was really muddy with long grass, and you didn’t have to run for long before the normal soleplate was clogged.
The “Dark Lightning” pack is Nike’s latest release and I got the Hypervenom Phantom II! This is also my first ever Anti-Clog boot and this is why I want to go out and test them to see how the new technology works.
The Anti-Clog might be a bit difficult to explain and that’s why it took 2 years for Nike’s engineers and chemists to create this soleplate. However the solution to avoid mud clogging into the boots were not to make the plate water-repellent but instead to include an adaptive polymer that becomes compliant when exposed to water. The key was to understand the molecular strukture of mud and this way creating a Anti-Clog soleplate!
