The combo of colors on this latest Nike T90 Laser IV release is one of the funkiest we have seen this year to date – yet they are grabbing a ton of positive attention! Reaction has fans for the Black/Total Orange/Blue Glow colorway has praised the look and it seems like this might be one of the more popular releases in the silo to date. It is the use of Orange on the upper that makes it a very signified T90 release, but the inclusion of Blue Glow detailing creates a very different look.
I like what Nike has done with this release and it adds a fresh and edgy look to the range. One of the primary features of T90 Laser IV is the Adaptive Shield region across the strike zone. It is particularly effective in play and it effectively bends in motion with your foot as you control the ball, making for a really smooth strike just as Nike advertise.
For those interested in picking up a pair, they are available with a retail of $220.
I haven’t tested the Kanga Lite version of the T90, so I can’t really comment too much on their performance. I recently posted a full review for the synthetic version, and it tested really well. But, there is a big difference between how both the synthetic to Kanga Lite upper perform on the pitch. Feedback from other players has been very positive toward the KL upper, and there does seem to be a trend in players shifting to the advanced upper.
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!
