If you want to get noticed whilst wearing specialist performance footwear, then the Nike5 Elastico Finale's are the football trainers for you. Part of a triple-header of new Nike football trainers, the Elasctico series could well be the trainers we've been waiting for...
With an eye-catching design, the Elastico Finale football trainers are definitely a unique choice, but it's also worth noting that they offer unique performance. The upper of the Elastico Finale is constructed from Nike's revolutionary Kanga-Lite material.
Used throughout the CTR360 Maestri range, the Kanga-Lite is a water resistant synthetic leather, which improves the trainers overall fit, comfort and performance.
The design of the Nike Elastico's is not purely for aesthetical reasons, as the striking design features performance benefits. The tacky debosed dots, which make the transition from the underfoot fins to the upper, medial and forefoot area, create a full 360 degree ball touch and control area.
The 360 degree control and touch zone featured on the outsole incorporates innovative fin technology, borrowed from the T90 Laser range. Positioned at varying heights and angled downwards, the fins are designed to keep the ball down and enhance passing pace.
A new low profile court traction outsole, designed specifically for the
needs of the small sided game, features rubber pods at the toe and heel
for traction and stability. There are more midfoot and forefoot fins across the sole for
multidirectional underfoot ball control (now that's going to take some practice).
A moulded ortholite sockliner provides fantastic cushioning to keep you comfortable for the duration of your game.
The bold and bright new Nike football trainers are certainly going to make a splash on the small sided scene, if only for their wild colourway. But there is a lot of substance, performance and design thought behind the crazy colour, so if you think you have the skills to (and a kit that won't clash too badly) then you can pre-order a pair of the Nike 5 Elastico trainers now, for around £75 GBP.
Don't worry if your budget doesn't stretch that far - there are also the Nike 5 Elastico Pro (£55 GBP) or the entry level Nike 5 Elastico (£40 GBP) on offer should you decide these are the soccer shoes for you...
