Talk about a boot with a Christmas type feel! Nike released a bunch of new colorways today, but this one seems like the ideal boot to start with as it offers a look that will suit any pitch on a Winters day. The new Challenge Red/White/Anthracite colorway of the popular Nike T90 Laser IV range comes with a pretty classic Kanga Lite upper.
Personally, I like this colorway and feel that it suits what they T90 Laser range is all about, more so than any other colorway to date. The challenge red color used is the same as we saw on the initial CTR360 Maestri release and it features an almost metallic finish. I recently posted a full review for the synthetic version, and it tested really well. But, there is a big difference between the performance offered from the synthetic to Kanga Lite upper but I have heard very positive things about the KL upper.
One of the primary features of T90 Laser IV is the Adaptive Shield region across the strike zone. It is particularly effective and it effectively bend in motion with your foot as you control the ball, making for a really smooth strike just as Nike advertise. Along with the release, Nike introduced us to the slogan “The Perfect Strike”, giving you some idea of the direction they have headed with this boot.
For those interested in picking up a pair, they retail for $220.
