Over the past little while we have seen a host of new boots released. Puma, Umbro and Adidas have all released new boots and colourways and now it is Nike’s turn to update their colourways. Nike recently launched the new Tiempo Legend IV boots and have followed that up with a new colourways across all their silos. We have been lucky enough to glimpse these new colourways during the European U21 Championships, Copa America and other international friendlies that have happened but now we get close up look as Nike official unveil new colourways for the Superfly II, T90 Laser III and CTR360 Maestri II football boots.
We start with the ‘old man’ in the Nike range, the T90 Laser III. Nike will replace the Laser III with the brand new Laser IV in October, so we expect this to be one of (if not) the last colourways for the Laser III. And what a great looking colourway it is! We first got a glimpse of this Blue Dusk/Volt/Black colourway on the feet of Chris Smallng while the Manchester United star was training with the England u21 side – and we liked them immediately.

The T90 Laser III Elite boots feature a large striking zone thanks to the off-center lacing. ShotShield technology enables more powerful shots and passes while raised TPU fins on the instep increase friction on the ball adding swerve control in crosses, shots and passes. The Elite’s Carbon Fiber chassis enables them to be lighter and stronger than the standard model and offers a higher energy return. Lightweight direct-injected TPU blades provide balance, traction, and instant acceleration in every direction.
Nike’s CTR360 Meastri boots were revolutionary when they arrived on the market and that momentum has been kept by the CTR360 Meastri II. This is the 5th colourway Nike have released for the Maestri II and think this could be their best yet. The new Black/White/Challenge Red colourway is a classy looking pair of boots and we expect these to be a major hit with boot fans around the world.

The CTR360 Maestri II boots are designed for the player looking to master control on the pitch. Control the tempo with accurate passing, dictating the pace and creating chances. The Kanga-Lite synthetic leather upper reduces the weight while still providing superb comfort and ball feel. Injected instep pad ensure a great first touch while grip-like traction allow precise ball control and leads to precise distribution and placement of passes. Damping pad zones on the lateral forefoot give great first touch ball control. Direct- inject, bladed TPU studs on the bottom of the boot provides excellent stability and superior traction in every move.
Nike’s Mercurial range have been at the forefront of speed boots for years and their current offering, the Mercurial Vapor Superfly III once again boast some amazing technology. After two eye-catching colourways (and Cristiano Ronaldo’s of course), Nike have released a slightly more understated colourway for the Superfly III. Introducing the Granite/Purple/White/Red colourway:

The Superfly III are designed for speed. Flywire technology in the upper adds comfort by providing anatomical fit while enabling weight reduction. Nike’s innovative Adaptive Traction Technology and Pressure-activated traction system provide excellent stability and traction allow for superb acceleration. The glass-fiber composite soleplate adds strength and support.
