For those that want to “rule the streets,” Nike has dropped a new collection that will let you play with São Paolo style. Two fresh new StreetGato colorways blend Nike’s top performance technology with an iconic streetwear look, providing a base for players that want the best footwear for court soccer.
There are two key features that make these one of the most versatile shoes available. First, a suede upper offers an everyday look whether you’re playing on the street or keeping things casual. And then performance wise underfoot, Nike has redesigned an outsole that provides nonstop traction for small-sided games.
In terms of sizing, the StreetGato offers a snug fit that keeps you locked in on hardcourt surfaces, where rapid changes in direction are key to playing the game right. The upper wraps up close around your foot, so you won’t have a lot of breathing space. I found that starting out, they felt extremely tight, but over a few wears the materials loosen up enough to provide comfortable performance. Initially, I thought I would need to recommend going up a half size. But in hindsight, sticking true-to-size will provide competitive players with the optimal fit.
