I’m starting to like the direction Nike has headed with the T90 Laser IV range. Rather than the actual colorway employed, it has far more to do with keeping things monotone on the upper. Choosing to keep the two tones used on the upper provides a much cleaner all around look than the hyperactive original designs we saw in the range.
On this Spring 2013 collection release, the colorway is listed as a Mango/Black/Crimson and it is obviously the Mango and Crison that give it the almost Nike Vapor VIII appearance. For those of you that are eagle-eyed boot fanatics, note that this latest release takes a page from the original Nike VIII releases. The Mango look is sure to draw some comparisons on pitch even if they are completely different ranges.
You can currently pick up this fresh new colorway from soccer.com.
What is ACC Technology?
ACC, which is a special treatment applied to the solvent-free Kanga-Lite synthetic upper during the development process, has the purpose of enhancing ball control in both wet and dry conditions. We have already seen this technology added to the current Nike line-up (including the Clash Collection) with positive feedback from players
About the Nike T90 Laser IV
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.
Again, you can currently pick up this colorway from soccer.com.
