Nike have released a new Neptune Blue/Vibrant version of the Total90 Laser III that has been pretty easy to spot lately. If you saw the mid-week Champions League game between Man Utd and Bayern Munich you might have seen Wayne Rooney scoring wearing them. That is if you caught the first minute of the game! Rooney ended the game with only one boot on, as he unfortunately injured his ankle right on 90 minutes.
These are a pretty bold looking cleat, but to be honest I kind of like the design. Instead of having the red pods like on the original release, these bad boys have an easily noticeable yellow. This yellow pops with the almost sky blue main color. I also like the bright yellow Nike swoosh that sits along the outside. I can just imagine how colorful these would be with the Nike Red laces! Can you say rainbow?
I reviewed the Nike Total90 Laser III a few weeks back and really liked them (other than the fact I got injured wearing them, with a very similar injury to Wayne Rooney’s but that’s another story!) I think they are a huge improvement on the T90 Laser II and offer a great level of comfort and support. The five pods across the front of the boot are designed to improve shot power, while the fins along the side of the boot have the job of cushioning the ball on impact – improving control.
