Nike “Back to Black” Summer Collection Released

Nike Back to Black Collection

Nike has just unveiled a collection of Summer boots that really go against the norm of modern releases. It has been labeled the “Back to Black” collection and as you can tell, the line-up is modeled off of the color Black.

In a world of vivid colorways, this latest set is actually going to stand out for a completely different reason. Maybe Nike actually took note of the fan reaction and put together a more traditional set of colors on their extremely modern range of boots. Either way, it is actually a really smart move and the designs are really sharp.

“We know that our players love to stand out on and off the field. That doesn’t always mean bright colors, sometimes reverting to a classic look is just as powerful a statement.” – Phil McCartney, VP of Footwear for Nike Football

On offer in the Back to Black collection you have the following four ranges and designs to choose from.

Black HyperVenom Profile

Nike Hypervenom Phantom

Colorway:  Tonal Black upper with dark Charcoal colored honeycombs and a Crimson Red Swoosh.

List Price: $224.99

This is Nike’s latest boot release on the market. It is built off the premise of “A new breed of attack“. In other words, this is a boot built for attacking style players who want to take hold of the game. As worn by Neymar, extremelly impressively might I add, at the recent Confederations cup.

Black Mercurial Vapor Profile

Nike Mercurial Vapor IX

Colorway:  Black upper that features a White Swoosh and Red detailing on the heel.

List Price: $223.99

It is really interesting to see a Black Vapor release and they are sure to take a little getting used to on the feet of players like Zlatan Ibrahimovich and Cristiano Ronaldo. Seen as Nike’s top lightweight option, the Vapor comes with the tagline “Explosive Speed”.

Black CTR360 Profile

Nike CTR360 Maestri III

Colorway:  Black and dark Charcoal upper with a White Swoosh and Citrus detailing on the forefoot stud.

List Price: $199.99

Built for players who want to control the game, the CTR360 is built as a possession boot. You get several features that cater for players that want to really stand out and run the game from behind the front line.

Black Tiempo Legend Profile

Nike Tiempo Legend IV

Colorway:  Dark Charcoal upper features Black detailing and an Orange Swoosh.

List Price: $159.99

The traditional boot of the range – and this one seems to blend in as a release you would expect from the attributes of the range! The Tiempo Legend is designed to offer masterful touch on the ball while providing a classic, heritage fit.
