Warrior Sports has just unveiled their latest boot release that completes their full category sub-set. The Warrior Superheat is a new type of speed boot, adding another choice for players who like things lightweight and designed for acceleration. With the likes of Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini and Tim Cahill part of their ranks, it is another step forward for the American company. Tom Ince is the player they are using to spearhead this campaign, which makes sense considering they are the type of boot that suits his style of play pretty perfectly.
Through their release campaign, we were initially introduced to videos and images of high speed cars and planes, then there was a lot of fire and the tagline “Can you handle the heat?” It all makes sense once you see and read about the final product. Fusing high tech innovation with unadulterated pace, the boot is designed for the game changer, the one who burns off opponents at will. And visually, you get that feeling!
As it pretty typical with Warrior, they have also introduced us to a whole new dictionary of terminology associated with the new boot, so in order to figure it all out, here is your cheat sheet of what to expect from the boot:
- Revolutionary TRI-FUSION bonded skin for limitless touch and speed.
- ORGANITOUCH super-thin outer film for natural feel and close control.
- NEOWEB mesh base layer with DWR water resistant treatment for lightweight infinite comfort.
- NANOCRADLE 2nd layer balances efficient support with optimum agility.
- Superlight TRI FUSION tongue for perfect feel and fit.
- Membrane HEEL SHIELD for unseen support and protection.
- SLIPSTREAM lacing system for optimum fit and comfort.
- FG WAR PLATE – Dual Injected Clawtech blades provide traction and acceleration on dry and firm surfaces.
Everything about the boot is geared toward being streamlined, and even though there seems to be a lot added to the boot from the above, it really is a minimalist design. Piecing together a formula that actually works and allows players to move about the pitch at high speed in total comfort can be a tricky process. But if the overall look is anything to go by, it seems that Warrior are off to a good start.
In terms of weight, the Superheat will sit somewhere around the 6.3oz mark, which makes them one of the lightest boots currently on the market. You can tell from looking at them that they are going to feel featherlight, with mesh in the upper and a see-through soleplate giving that appearance.
We haven’t yet confirmed where these will be available to buy in the US and there is no retail price yet officially set, but we expect them to come in around the standard $180 MSRP mark.
UPDATE: The Superheat is now available to order at Soccer.com for $179.99.
