This week, we happened to have a pair of the latest Nike T90 Laser IV colorway fall through our hands and we couldn’t miss the opportunity to highlight them – especially as they are the current colorway being worn by one Paul Scholes! Of course, there are other top players like Wesley Sneijder and Klaas Jan Huntelaar wearing the same look, but Scholes current form is scintillating and I’m an automatic fan of whatever he is wearing!!
The colorway is listed as a Bright Crimson/Dark Obsidian/Electric Green and we actually highlighted them when they were released in mid-September.In person, they are absolutely popping – I’m not sure how Nike formulated the Crimson color, but it is seriously bright.
Then there is the addition of ACC technology in the upper, or “All Conditions Control”. I’m not going to go into detail on ACC, but if you are interested in reading about it, check out how the experts describe it. It is something that makes this version of the T90 Laser much different from any of the other colorways currently on the market, and it is an ideal addition as we head into the wet winter months.
For those interested, this colorway retails for just under $190. More detailed images below!
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 and it effectively bend 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.
