I’m really not sure where to start with this latest Nike T90 Laser IV release, except to compare them to a disco party piece from the 80’s, and immediately Madonna’s “Get into the Groove” comes to mind! The mesh of colors, a Bright Crimson/Dark Obsidian/Electric Green to be precise, creates an electric effect that stuns the eyes on first glance.
The big question is who actually will buy these? As is the way with so many releases, I can actually see a large chunk of players wanting to wear the full-flavored release. The T90 Laser IV range has been extremely popular with both attacking and defensive minded players, so there is definitely room for a new colorway to choose from. Plus the Electric Green detailing along the Crimson Red upper creates a one-off type of pop.
In terms of retail, the T90 Laser retails for $219.99.
Something else to note about these is the fact that Nike employ a solid forefoot color – this is the first time we have seen them do it on a regular release in the T90 IV range. The Euro Edition did feature a solid white forefoot, but the overall visual design of that boot was unique to the Clash Collection.
One of the primary features of T90 Laser IV is the Adaptive Shield region across the strike zone. It is particularly effective as it bends in motion with your foot as you control the ball, making for a really smooth strike just as Nike advertise. I recently posted a full review for the synthetic version, and they tested out really well.
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.
