Built to deliver 'the perfect strike', the new Nike T90 Laser IV has been redesigned to offer ultimate precision and power. From the early days of the first T90 Laser, Nike's power boot has fast become a key weapon for some of Europe’s deadliest players. Wayne Rooney, Wesley Sneijder, Rio Ferdinand and Fernando Torres all headline a a player roster that highlights the boots versatility.
Once again, the famous Nike 'Total Orange' fronts a strong launch colourway that will kick start the boots 11/12 season. Whether it's on some Europe's biggest stages or at your local Sunday league pitch, the new White/Black/Orange Nike T90 Laser IV will cause some serious double-takes! With Inter Milan's midfield maestro Wesley Sneijder already giving the boots their competitive debut, the rest of the T90 squad look set to follow this weekend...with some new additions looking likely!
Constructed using a premium grade lightweight synthetic upper, the new Nike T90 Laser IV launch boot won't offer a leather alternative for now – Fernando Torres will have to wait a little longer! Visually, the Laser IV may create initial divide, but they've been given the SoccerBible thumbs-up! The T90 Laser IV takes note from the Superfly III, with visual emphasis strongly placed on the instep of the boot.
To the surprise of many, Nike have released the T90 Laser IV without an Elite series. The Nike T90 Laser IV football boots will feature a standard sole-plate with a TPU bladed stud arrangement – that's right, no carbon fibre sole-plate! Even so, the new Nike T90 Laser IV is an astonishing 50g lighter than its former self at just 270g – just 5g heavier than the Laser III Elite!
Each evolution of the T90 range has seen unique design enhancements to the boots signature feature. The new Nike T90 Laser IV adaptive shot shield technology is divided into 'Power' and 'Swerve' zones. Key contact zones are broken into strips surrounded by shape correcting foam, while Fins reduced in size and height offer a more powerful and natural ball feel. Both zones are designed to flex naturally with ball contact, allowing natural movement of the foot.
The new TPU stud arrangement combines with toe and heel secondary traction. This design allows for superior structural reinforcement and traction on wet and soft ground pitches. A moulded-EVA sock-liner provides the necessary work required to reduce stud pressure and increase on-field comfort. As well as cushioning and support, the moulded-EVA sock-liner also provides the boots with a contoured arch and heel support, whilst Poron inserts reduce stud pressure.
Europe’s top leagues are now in full swing and the new Nike T90 Laser IV is ready to crash the party. A significant milestone in the evolution of the T90 range, the Nike Laser's fourth instalment is one of the most exciting yet! Expect a full retail launch on 16/09/11 with the Nike T90 Laser IV priced at £140 GBP / $200 USD / €160 EURO.
