The T90 Laser III is back, and this time out it’s packing more punch than ever!

Nike Total 90 Laser III Elite

Part of the Nike Elite Series of football boots, the T90 Laser III Elite is the same football boot you know and love, but with even more added benefits.

The first one that Nike would tell you about is the full Carbon Fibre Soleplate. As we know from many other football boots such as the Umbro Stealth Pro and Puma v1.10 – Carbon Fibre has been used in the industry to provide a lightweight, rigid spine for improved power transference when striking the ball.

In the T90 Laser III Elite, the whole sole is Carbon Fibre, and it’s been specially ‘tuned’ by Nike – to make the whole plate bendable in the toes, but stable and strong in the mid-foot.

This not only makes the football boot lighter, but in theory, should also provide a great platform for the energy released when striking a ball to transfer into the ball!

The second big revolution for the new T90 Laser III Elite is the Colourway. Now, we know what you’re thinking – we thought it too on first glance!

But Nike assure us that this is a whole new level of sports science that we can expect to see exploited more often:

An average person’s vision is 99% peripheral. Under 1% is considered foveal, or focused vision.

To spark increased focus of peripheral vision Nike designers analysed the colour spectrum to identify two, high-contrast colours, so that when a player is running with these boots the colours trigger a stimulus to rapidly tune peripheral vision.

Mach Purple and Total Orange provided the perfect blend to create this effect and performance advantage.

    I think the lasers probably benefit the most from the elite series, along with the Tiempos. Still, that price….

    I think Nike will produce these in pretty limited quantities as they probably know that the average consumer would never pay this much for a mildly improved version of a football boot.

    I just realized that they are about 40g lighter than a normal pred X but cost 2.5 times more. lol think if i do wanna get a T90, i just stick to the K leather version. its also about 2.5 times cheaper than the elite version.

  3. says: thekop

    This nike elite thing it’s just a ridiculous way to get more money and frankly i think it is sad. I award them no points and may god have mercy on their soul.

    @ Perry

    sources said the Mizuno ignitus is at 229g. which makes it about 60g lighther and ÂŁ140 cheaper LOL

    this is the ugliest color period… i was thinking to buy them for the boot but too many damn beaners where the superflies and new vapors that it’d feel like a beaner boot…. drop the color or im dropping this boot…

  6. says: Alexander Cairel

    this cleats are sick i want them but im just going to settle for the green NIKE TOTAL 90 iii strike’s

  7. says: Mark

    I know everyone is complaining about cost but you can wait six months and find them for half the price! These are the latest advancements in soccer cleats and THEY ARE AWESOME! Light and powerful. I had the adizero and thought they were good because of light weight but they aren’t great for control or power and if you miss hit the ball it actually hurts your foot because they are so thin… And they don’t offer any protection. Light is good to a point… But don’t sacrifice everything else for it.
