The Nike5 Gato Street is a shoe that has been designed for players who like to get involved in soccer games whenever the opportunity arises. Along with a pair in the Sail/Victory Green colorway that I tested a few weeks back, Nike sent over this extremely bold Chling Red/Varsity Red version that really pop.
The best thing about this release is that they double as both a high-end, fashionable sneaker and a pair of street shoes that will give you top level performance when you jump in to a pick-up game. Whether you wear them as a designer shoe to be worn in casual circumstances, or in your back alleyway, they serve their purpose with applause.
I have street tested both colorways to full effect and I can confirm the obvious – they perform at exactly the same level. You simply need to decide which version suits your style best. For a more comprehensive review of what you can expect, check out the Nike5 Gato Street review.
Summing it all up
If you pick up a pair of Nike5 Gato Street’s you won’t be disappointed. To be honest, I didn’t know much about them before I received a pair for testing. But since, I have been really impressed with what they have to offer and love wearing them around as my everyday shoe, all the while being ready to jump in the nearest pick-up game. I recommend ordering true to size. Finally, and probably most importantly, if you decide to wear them in wet/rainy conditions, don’t go wearing them inside the house – even the best looking shoes are not designed to self-clean!
