Up Close – Nike Hypervenom X Finale II SE TF

Nike Hypervenom X Finale II SE TF Review

If you are on the market for a pair of turf specific shoes, the Hypervenom X Finale II TF has probably popped up on your radar. They are a very clean looking boot that takes advantage of Nike’s many fine technological advancements over the past few seasons, like Flywire to aid in lockdown and support. The theme since their introduction has been focused on allowing players to cut, strike and score in tight positions.

So, what exactly is it that makes this version a special edition release? Nike has created them to “represent the South and the warmth that allows players to play outside”, with this model utilizing neoprene and weather coated materials to help you withstand the elements on the outdoor courts. Note here that there is no Flyknit on this release, unlike the Hypervenom series itself. Neoprene around the ankle offers a very different type of feel. It is a lot more like a foam than a knit material, so from first wear it isn’t overly constrictive.

Hypervenom X Finale II TF Upper

When it comes to the upper, Nike use a texture to help increase ball control. It works well in both dry and wet conditions, as the extra definition across the NikeSkin material creates some extra surface area for the ball to connect with.

Underfoot, a rubber studded outsole is intended to provide ultimate traction on artificial turf surfaces. Personally, I find FG provides better traction for my style of play, where I rely heavily on quick turns and acceleration. TF specific seems to be more appropriate for players that like to hold a more central role in a team, where they are more about front to back and lateral movements, getting on the ball and creating opportunities for other players around them.

A few other notes;

  • In the heel, a Nike Zoom pod adds extra cushion underfoot.
  • The Swoosh is treated to a luminescent treatment that can be seen under lights.
  • FlyWire through the lacing allows for a more personalized fit.
  • They do fit a little small, consider going a half size up.
  • They weight in at 9.6oz.
