Nike has dropped the Mercurial and Phantom releases that will join the Tiempo legend to complete the “Rawdacious Pack”, the boots that will be worn by Nike athletes at the Olympic Games in Tokyo this Summer.
Crisp and clean is the theme, with Nike creating a neutral white upper that really stand out on pitch. What is nice about the Mercurial is the stripped-down Flyknit upper, with its see through appearance. It is designed to deliver a distraction-free feel, while reducing weight in the process. The new Speed Band around the forefoot keeps you locked in and ready to accelerate.
These boots join the new Nike Tiempo Legend 9 that was released earlier this month. Nike dropped a limited edition version that now merges with this pack. The Tiempo features a blast of crimson detailing around the Swoosh, giving it a signature look amongst the rest. The ninth generation is the lightest Tiempo released to date. It has a redesigned plate and refined upper that combine to help reduce the boot’s weight down to just 7.3 oz.
