In what is more of a soft launch, Nike has dropped the Future Lab II Pack, with fresh new looks for the Mercurial and Phantom silos. What makes this release so unusual is the fact we really don’t know when or if we will get to see this pack on pitch, something that I’m sure is on the minds of the folks of Nike. Visually, each boot looks pretty awesome, with sharp colors that would be perfect on any green field this summer.
The Mercurial Superfly gets a crisp White upper, while the PhantomVSN and PhantomVNM take on an iconic Green Strike. If you need reference on that one, think back to the T90 Laser III in Electric Green that was released back in 2009. Looking at the PhantomVNM, there are a lot of similarities to that release, including the very famous strike target, which is imprinted on the boot bag. Not going to lie, that is my boot of choice from this pack!!!
Something else to note here, there is no Tiempo released as part of this pack, leading us to wonder why. Maybe Nike has something else in mind for their signature heritage silo?
