We love the Nike 5 Gato Street here on Footy-Boots.com.
Not only do they look the business and come in more colours than an all-the-way double rainbow, you can roll up to just about any game of footy on any surface and join in – which is great for when you get invited for a kickabout, and don’t want to be ‘that guy’ that wears football boots and a full Barcelona kit.
And all this is why we welcome any new colourways for the' Nike 5 Gato Street with open arms, and the latest trio of colourways rank up there as some of the best yet!
Camel/Solar Red, Navy/Photo Blue and Jetsteam/Volt are the three new additions to the range, and definitely provide some nice visual variety to the launch colours – which were mostly greys, whites and blacks.
Whilst our favourite has to be the Jetstream/Volt, we’ve got to hand it to Nike’s design team for the Camel/Solar Red colourway of the' Nike 5 Gato Street – it’s two colours we never thought we’d see on any piece of performance footwear and we think it looks tight!
Well, it’s designed is inspired by three great footballing cities; Barcelona, London and Tokyo. Each city is the muse for a different part of the Nike 5 Gato Street, giving it an eclectic-but-exceptional design.
Barcelona is the inspiration behind, or rather – beneath – the sole of the Nike 5 Gato Street. In a city where the best players dazzle with speed and exceptional touch, the ‘Iron-Grip’ sole ensures that you get the best possible traction, giving you the advantage of being able to leave your opponents for dead.
The concrete courts of London were the acid-testing ground for the Nike 5 Gato Street; if it’s ‘Hang-Tough’ construction and Lunarlon cushioning could keep the shoe in one piece and offer a comfortable ride there, they can probably do it just about anywhere.
Finally, Tokyo sparked the designers imagination when they came up with the overall look of the Nike 5 Gato Street. The electric circus of Akihabara is mere minutes away from the Meiji Shrine of Shibuya, it’s a city of contrast and where old meets new.
That’s why the classic Nike outstep with central lacing and the big tick„design that has graced so many great shoes meets an instep covered in a durable, prism-patterned instep that powers every pass and increases first touch friction.
All three new colourways are due out early August, with an RRP of £59.99/$74.99
