With the Euro 2016 and the Copa America tournaments taken place, it is hard not to notice all the new cleats on the pitch.
Spark Brilliance Pack
About a month ago, Nike released their new Spark Brilliance Pack with an entirely new batch of color ways. The Hyper Venom and The Mercurial lines have been completely re-engineered. The Hyper Venom goes “back to the future” by using a rendition of the first skin that was introduced back in 2013. The Superfly and Vapor has also been entirly remodeled with a new skin and sole plate that is 40% lighter and a new traction system that is designed for insane speed. In my opinion, Nike did a great job with their new pack. Check em out here.
Adidas Mercury Pack
Adidas has also been busy. Recently they introduced The Mercury Pack which contains two new boots for 2016. The X16+ PURECHAOS and the MESSI 16+ PUREAGILITY. This set has a brand new TECHFIT lacing system that allows the player to tuck their laces inside a flap on the cleat. Adidas’ new PURECUT SOCK SYSTEM keeps the laces out of sight to give the player an upgraded aerodynamic effect. Both cleats have new skins and sole plates that result in lighter weight and better traction. The pack’s color ways are super sweet and shine bright on the pitch just like mercury. Check em out here.
