Scratch off Christmas and birthdays; If there’s one yearly tradition we can get behind it’s Nike’s annual Stealth Pack releases.
Following on from last year, Nike have kicked off each new season with a batch of boots that are the perfect antidote to the forays into neons that always come with a summer of football, big tournament or not.
So, rolling out the black paint, the Nike Stealth Pack for 2014 gives mean and moody new colour-ups to their World Cup range of boots, cleverly incorporating silver accents and the Hyperpunch and Volt colours that were inescapable this summer.
After a mostly-Volt look in Brasil, the Nike Magista Obra reduces it’s flagship colour to the trim on this phenomenal Black/Silver/Volt Nike Stealth Pack entry.
Once quite a fun looking release, the Stealth Pack Magista now looks very deadly indeed, with the FlyKnit and NikeSkin’s all-black look adding an organic feel to the boot.
Likewise with the Nike Stealth Pack Superfly IV; Hyperpunch only makes the cuff this time out, as the Superfly now offers a colourway that dishes out that high-speed tech in an all-business colourway.
But does it look as good as the Nike Stealth Pack Mercurial Vapor X? The jury’s still out here at Footy-Boots.com HQ as this is one handsome release.
The all-black upper really shows off the low-profile, tongue-less cut of the latest Mercurial, not to mention that textured upper.
Speaking of uppers that look good in Black; oh, there you are, Nike Hypervenom Phantom.
With a two-shade Stealth Pack black on the segmented upper and just the amount of Hyperpunch – that will mostly go unseen when the boot is on foot – these are another strong looking boot.
And just to prove nothing pulls off the all-black look quite like a heritage release, the Nike Stealth Pack Tiempo Legend V’s game is on-point in all sorts of ways.
Available to pre-order now and shipping July 25th, which of the Nike Stealth Pack releases is your favourite?
