Nike’s new Hypervenom 3 football boots were designed to do two things above all else: cut and strike. With these critical components of goal scoring in mind, Hypervenom underwent a radical makeover that includes a shift to Flyknit and the introduction of a new plate.
“This is a finisher’s boot,” explains Max Blau, VP of Nike Football Footwear. “Every component of this boot was built for goals.”
The limited-edition Mercurial Superfly CR7 commemorates Cristiano Ronaldo’s achievements with his club and country this year. Those accomplishments include Ronaldo’s fourth Ballon d’Or, the UEFA Champions League title and the UEFA Euro 2016 championship.
For over 20 years, Tiempo has been synonymous with premium leather football boots. The new Tiempo Legend 6 builds upon that legacy with innovative craftsmanship for dominant touch. “Tiempo players start the attack,” says Nike Football Designer Vianney de Montgolfier. “We prioritize the touch and precision they depend on. With Tiempo Legend 6, we challenged ourselves to work with legendary materials in a new way.”
Inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest scoring achievements, the new Mercurial Superfly CR7 324K Gold and Mercurial Superfly CR7 Quinhentos celebrate the player’s phenomenal finishing skills. The colorways take cues from two of Ronaldo’s favorite Mercurial Vapor 3 designs.
Nike Football is known for revolutionising the game through innovations like Nike Flyknit and Dynamic Fit collars. But Nike’s design team grew up wearing the era’s leather boots and retains high regard for the material, as well as the soft touch associated with it. Collectively, the team began exploring the potential of fusing leather to Nike’s iconic football silhouettes in 2014. Their thinking quickly evolved into experimentation and, ultimately, a premium collection of hybrid leather boots: Nike Tech Craft.
Nike Tech Craft strategically places a thin layer of leather in high ball-contact areas (the medial and lateral sides of the forefoot) on each of Nike’s four football boot styles — Hypervenom, Magista, Mercurial and Tiempo. Each boot remains true to its original aesthetic and performance attributes, but with the soft touch and classic appeal of leather.
New Balance Football has officially revealed the brand’s first range of football boots. New Balance has launched two styles of boots; both designed for attack- minded players, but differentiated by style-of-play – a player’s philosophy. The Visaro boot is for players who ‘Make Chances’ and the Furon boot for players who ‘Take Chances’; it’s not position-specific, its outlook-specific.
