Nike Soccer revealed their brand new cleat pack, Spark Brilliance, ahead of this summer’s big soccer events: the 2016 Copa América Centenario, Euro 2016, and Rio 2016. This marks the debut of the Mercurial Superfly V and features a long awaited update for the Hypervenom II silo.
Mercurial Superfly V
The new iteration of Nike’s speed cleats features quite a few changes, but the one you’ll notice right away is the redesigned upper, which has a 3D texture with individual ribs of varying thicknesses from 1 millimeter to 2.5 millimeters in the forefoot to provide better ball control.
The soleplate was re-engineered as well, and it’s now made of a single layer chassis to reduce its weight by 40%. The studs retained their shape but have been positioned in different directions to provide more traction and help players brake without falling.
Their debut colorway will feature a dark base with vibrant orange and pink detailing on the upper. The speed stand out in black, while the Swoosh and studs are featured in bright green.
Hypervenom Phantom II
The Hypervenom II silo has gotten more than just a paint job and we see the return of the original NikeSkin upper from Hypervenom I.
“The upper of the Hypervenom II takes a bit longer to break-in than the Hypervenom I,” says Max Blau, VP Nike Football Footwear, about the change. “We provide new boots to our professional players so frequently that we shifted to the Hypervenom I material to ease the break-in period.”
The new Hypervenom II cleats are vibrant Volt, with black and turquoise accents.
Magista Obra and Opus
Magista boots only got a color update featuring a gradient effect from total crimson to volt, adding black and bright citrus contrast on the upper.
Tiempo Legend 6
Tiempo Legend, on the other hand, are painted in clear jade, combining it with volt and black to create an eye-catching look.
Expect to see these new cleats on the feet of top elite players, such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Sergio Ramos and Alexis Sánchez.
