For those of you who are fans of Nike’s Tech Craft Packs and want something a little less vibrant rainbow, check out the latest “Achromatic” collection. Achromatic, which means “without color”, produces what is basically a Black/White design. This is about as pure and clean as you will find on any Nike boot, especially when you factor in how they are actually constructed.
Nike has mixed modern innovation with classic performance, creating a series of boots that players will seriously want on their feet. Each of the four Swoosh boot styles – Hypervenom, Magista, Mercurial and Tiempo – have been fitted with Nike Tech Craft across the forefoot. Basically, Nike has taken Flyknit and Dynamic Fit collars, and matched them with a clean piece of leather across the forefoot.
The application of leather to the upper delivers a responsive touch on the ball. But how do you add a leather to knit materials, keeping it together as one? Well, great care was taken by Nike to ensure the softness of the leather was not compromised as it was fused onto the upper. The footwear team leveraged a balance of oils to offset the steam and prevent the leather from stiffening. Nike All Conditions Control was integrated into the process to provide enhanced ball control in both dry and wet conditions.
