Today Nike released the imagery of the footwear that will be worn during the World Cup and through the summer. The Magista Obra, Mercurial Superfly, Tiempo Legend V, and Hypervenom Phantom are pictured in the vibrant World Cup colorways: Hyperpunch & Volt with gold accents featured throughout. It will be interesting to see how these boots matchup against the adidas Battle Pack on field.
In celebration of Arsenal’s recent FA Cup win & the end to the 20 year partnership, Nike has created a “mashup” jersey commemorating some famous past Arsenal jerseys. The most recent kit serves as the basis for the jersey, but is mixed in with swatches from the yellow of past away kits and the maroon from the farewell to the Highbury home stadium jersey. The jersey is a special edition with individual numbering and will only be available at London’s Nike Phenomenal House at the Sorting Office from May 26 to 30.
Nike recently released the FC Barcelona Home kit for the 2014/15 season. It features the classic Barcelona blue and red stripes with a few new design touches. The subtle v-neck features the yellow and red stripes of the Catalan flag. “Barca” is also written in that same yellow on the back of the neck. The kits feature the latest Nike Dri-Fit technology and environmental sustainability.
