Nike FC247 Radioactive Collection Released

Nike FC247 Boot Collection

As winter begins to finally thaw, you’re probably already thinking about getting ready for your full sided games again. But not so fast! Nike’s premier small sided line FC247 has announced the Radioactive Collection at a perfect time to meld the end of the indoor season with the beginning of outdoor training here in North America.

All three boots in the FC247 range have received a new splash of paint (figuratively, of course) to herald the changing of the seasons. So join us as we dive into the new Radioactive collection!

Nike FC247 Elastico II Finale in Sonic Yellow

The futsal boot of the FC247 family comes in hot with an strikingly bright yellow upper, that’s pretty much impossible to miss on the court. The combination of the Sonic Yellow and Black gives me a reminder of the trefoil hazard symbol signifying nuclear decay, or as it’s commonly known, radioactivity. The Nikeskin upper is designed offer exceptional grip and touch on the ball while enabling the Elastico to be the lightest indoor boot ever created by ‘The Swoosh’. Traction wise, stability is ensured by the rubber outsole featuring the herringbone pattern, ensuring that you stay on your feet during all the quick turns and sprints which come along with the standard futsal match.

Nike FC247 Bomba Finale II in Black/Purple Venom/Wolf Grey

Easily the least conspicuous and most classic looking colourway in the Radioactive collection, the Bomba Finale II is the premier boot for small sided turf or AG games. A far cry from the original Nike Bomba, which was built like a tank and designed for power, the Bomba II is an entirely different animal, designed more in the vein of a control boot featuring the Nikeskin in the forefoot similar to the Elastico, and because of the nature of some turf and AG pitches being outdoors the Bomba is treated to a dab of Nike’s All Conditions Control (ACC) technology to ensure the boot is in tip top shape even if the weather isn’t! Traction wise the Bomba is probably the most interesting small sided boot in the world as it combines the classic turf nubby studs with the new hat technology of an Artificial Grass stud layout. If your looking for a more in depth look at what the Bomba II offers our own Jim Gauthier provided a very good review the other month, which you can read here.

Nike FC247 Lunar Gato II in Poison Green/Black

My favourite boot aesthetically of the bunch, and one that Bryan believes is the best performing court football boot on the market today. It’s the boot which is rough and ready for a game on pretty much any surface that isn’t grass. The black and green combination hits the spot a treat, and the supple goat leather upper on the forefoot and inside of the boot is pre-broken in so you’ll be able to take a pass and dish the ball off like your Andrea Pirlo right out of the box (not a guarantee). The mesh rear panel ensures a locked in fit and also sheds weight, which is something that we’re seeing more and more in the indoor game, which to be honest it’s probably about time.  Where traction is concerned again Nike have relied heavily on the herringbone pattern on the sole which is reknown for its grippyness and stability, so much so that it’s often used on competitive yachting shoes.

  1. Hey Brian,
    I wanted to ask whether I'll be able to use the lunar gatos or the elastic is on hard natural grass pitches as in my local park they don't allow firm ground studs so should I get these even though they're court shoes and not firm ground shoes.
