We’ve seen some weird and wonderful boots over recent weeks, the Nike Mercurial Vapor Berry, David Beckham’s Adidas Predators but we haven’t seen anything like this – the Nomis NXGEN Spark.
Nomis has a new innovative technology at its disposal – small runs of customised designs direct onto the leather surface of the football boot under the patented Dual Control grip enhancing treatment.
In the past it has been fairly easy to manufacture designs onto synthetic leathers, but only at a screen printing quality. Now a fully digitised hi-resolution design can be incorporated onto the Nomis K leather upper, allowing freedom of design on the best performing and sustainable material for football boots. This beckons a new era of you the athlete becoming a co-designer with Nomis.
The technology was developed over the last few years and was trialled extensively to ensure that new technique could stand up to demands of competitive football. And it does.
Naturally Nomis are playing their cards close to their chest on this, but the process is said to be quite revolutionary in the way that it is incorporated into the tanning process, with concepts utilised from four different chemical industries to create the final product.
More limited designs will be launched throughout 2009 with leading artists coupled with systems being launched for you the athlete to co create with the Nomis design team.
For the launch, there are a limited edition of just 200 pairs and you can only get them via Footy Boots for one month only by clicking on the link below.
Other technology incorporated into the boot
Dual Control Technology has been found in laboratory tests to create significantly more grip in dry conditions compared to other standard leather boots. More grip gives more control, power, swerve and better performance. The leather is soft, strong, and breathable, providing excellent sweat resistance while being totally colourfast.
Nomud is an innovative new technology that helps our boots to remain light during game play without sacrificing vital support features that expose you to injury.
Nomud is applied to the outsole of Nomis boots, which significantly reduces the amount of mud, grass, and dirt collected during normal game play.
Nomud helps retain maximum traction whilst your boots stay just as light at the end of your game as at the beginning.
Nomud also means less cleaning as it is a self-cleaning technology.

Limited Edition: 200 pairs
Does it use K-leather or just normal leather?
It’s K Leather, says in the description.
Would like to know if the leather feels as good as the Nomis boots normally do.
Quite fancied a pair of Nomis, some of their recent boots have had some great technology in them, without going overboard.
That said, Nomis, give me a pair that are Black or white, instead of ‘Sunset Waffles’ I’ll be more than happy to buy.
hmm I don’t like it..
Full marks to Nomis for coming up with something different.
At least its a nice rest from ‘another colourway’ of an established boot.
Wow! In the past I didnt really like the design of Nomis boots, but this looks good.
“Nomud also means less cleaning as it is a self-cleaning technology.” Sounds funny i want to see this working 😛
We had Nomud technology around when I was a kid. It was called ‘your Mum’.
somebody knows when does the new umbro sx flare comes out??
They have replaced the SX Flare range with the SX Valor.
I don’t like this boot, too much going on, Give me a pair of Specialis any day!
they are being axed!!! i rang umbro and asked them wen the new colourway is comin out and they said there will not be any new colours as they are being discontinued!
The SX Flare has been replaced by the SX Valor II, seen here
BTW I don’t like the Nomis, too much fuss! Give me a pair of specialis any day!
a football star who wear them ???
Man these are hidious..
Anybody tht thinks they look good is out of their mind..
Vapors are the best. These look like their they are made for wide footed people.. Not for me..
that is true kevin
what do you think about the f50???
Well martinccillo, I think they are a very nice looking boot again.. But to me they just seem to complicated.. Having to tighten your studs every game.. Changing every piece possible. Again just stick to a shoe that makes you feel good without and changes being done to it.. That’s when you feel truly comfortable.. Plus a lot of my freinds say they loose pieces or the chasis breaks..
thank kevin, they look good, but i heard that is hard to tigh correctly the studs.
ehh i dont like these much, did anyone notice footy-boots has a smiley face in the bottom left corner? haha
haha anyway these r alright, but i just dont like the color, anyone know how much they weigh?
devin how do you think about pay 260 euros for them, nomis is sick !!!!
