Not long after the initial launch of the Nike Vapor 8, players now have another colorway option to choose from thanks to the Nike Clash Collection. Listed as a White/Black/Solar Red, this is the most standout colorway released in the range. On field, the Solar Red is designed to stand out and they won’t be missed on the pitches through Euro 2012.
The Vapor 8 is a boot designed for speed and they have been receiving plenty of praise from players who have worn them to date. While testing them, I found that they offered a very natural feel thanks to the soft microfiber upper. When they initially arrived, it was the first thing I noticed as it is super soft and extremely flexible to touch.
There are several key differences between the Vapor VII and VIII release, all of which we covered comprehensively yesterday in the Vapor 8 release post. All of the changes are geared toward a lighter, more explosive boot that delivers optimal traction. A 2 blade heel design coupled with a suede microfiber upper create an unmistakeably new experience for players. They weigh in at 6.5oz and will retail for $220.
The Nike Clash Collection delivers performance engineering for every style of player. The individual boots are sparked by specific color finished with a white toe upper to create a distinctive yet common theme across the collection.
Stay tuned for details on the rest of the boots in the Clash Collection over the next week!
