As the ‘Wild Child’ of the old Nike5 range, we always expected bold, brash and beautiful' things' of the Elastico – and as the Nike FC247 collection launches, we’re glad the Nike Elastico Finale II doesn’t disappoint.
Designed for hard-court surfaces like you’ll find in futsal, the Nike Elastico Finale II' is as bright a shoe as you’ll ever come across.
In a dynamic green, complimented by hot pink, the Elastico Finale II' brings the ‘safari’ print across to it’s design on the Nike branding and laces for a truly standout shoe.
Futsal is all about speed, control and flair, which is why Nike have brought NikeSkin to the fore on their new FC247 collection. The high-friction upper on the Nike Elastico Finale II' offers a natural guide for the shoe to crease along, for comfort and ease of break-in, as well as improved touch on the ball.
Nike have sought out feedback from players at all levels for their FC247 range, and that hes resulted in them featuring 39% fewer components on the Elastico Finale II' than it’s predecessor, resulting in a 22% reduction in weight.
The outsole has been designed for hard-court surfaces, featuring a split herringbone and dot design to help maximize traction and improve underfoot ball control.
Designed to grip like a the on the lateral side of the foot, the medial point under the toes and outside of the heel both feature ‘dots’ for improved flexibility.
As with the new version of the Bomba Finale, the forefoot outsole is split along the first metatarsal. The resulting groove improves flexibility, for a more natural movement of the toes when accelerating.
On the comfort side of things, Nike have revamped the rear of the shoe with a new perforated segment. Additionally, the eyestay for the laces has been redesigned to lock the tongue and instep in place, so no more unwanted tongue sliding off to either side of the boot.
' Ĺ›If I had more free time, I would like to train more with my colleagues on the futsal team. Futsal helps my ball control in tighter spaces,ĹĄ added Andres Iniesta.
Launching March 28th, we’ll have full details of the Nike Elastico Finale II' (and it’s takedowns) pricing as soon as they’re made available.
