Hot on the heels of the brand new Nike Tiempo Legend V, the Swoosh are ready to fire a fresh salvo of football boots onto the world’s pitches as they prepare a batch of boots with a distinct Green and Orange theme.
Players have received their boots to train in ahead of the weekend’s games, with many taking to social media to give us a great look at their new wheels ahead of the official unveiling.
Romelu Lukaku dropped his new Nike Mercurial Vapor IX’s on Instagram, showing off this eye-catching mint green-to-seaspray fade, with orange branding.
Also of note is the silver tongue, something that’s set to be a stand-out feature of Nike’s boots since it’s introduction on the Tiempo last week.
Also of note is the new ’98M’ Mercurial branding on the heel of this model. Nike are fiercely proud of the great World Cup moments that have been made in the Mercurial range of boots, and – even if Nike can’t explicitly state it’s for the World Cup (with it being adidas turf) – Nike could be celebrating that legacy with colourways designed to evoke prior colourways from tournaments past; 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 – with the colourways launching in the run up to 2014.
Everton’s hot England prospect Ross Barkley took to Twitter to show of the new CTR360 III, too.
Now the oldest of Nike’s range of football boots the CTR360 III is due a revamp before the World Cup in Summer, however it looks as fresh as ever in this Mango Orange / Silver / Black colourway/.
