If you want to get noticed while wearing specialist performance footwear, the Nike5 range continues to serve up some of the most eye-catching designs in small-sided football! As part of their Winter 13 range, Nike have introduced two bubble-gum style updates to the Elastico and Bomba Finale range.
Nike go all-out when it comes to their five-a-side footwear. Bold and bright designs, the Nike5 collection combines fierce colourways with high-end technology to deliver some of the most unique soccer shoes in the game. Check out their latest additions.
Both the Elastico & Bomba Finale shoes are designed for touch and control, crafted for the fast pace of the small-sided game. The 'Finale' editions represent Nike's top-tier level of indoor shoes. Gone are the days of wearing a moulded pair of boots on synthetic pitches! Nike have created specialist footwear to perform on 3G and astroturf surfaces.
If you're not shy when it comes to your footwear, you won't find a more eye-popping design than Nike's Pink/Volt Elastico Finale. We still wouldn't fancy taking them to our local five-a-side league on a cold Monday evening - if you're brave enough though, we salute you and wish you the best of luck! After all, they say real men wear pink.
The Bomba Finale has been treated to a slightly more modest Blue/Black colourway – similar to one of Nike's past T90 designs. The Bomba's showpiece technology is the shape-correcting shot shield that helps promoted low-trajectory striking for more accurate passes and shots. The CTR360-inspired instep also enhances touch for fast distribution.
Both are constructed using Nike's Kanga-Lite material - a synthetic leather which improves fit, comfort and performance. The unique design of the Elastico is not purely for aesthetic reasons. The tacky dots, which make the transition from the underfoot fins to the upper, medial and forefoot area, create a full 360 degree touch and control area.
The Elastico uses a low profile court traction outsole with rubber pods at the toe and heel. The sole unit of the Bomba Finale uses dual-density forefoot studs which are large and rounded to grip the ball better, combined with sharper and stronger heel studs.
The new Nike5 trainers will certainly make a splash on the small sided scene. There is a lot of substance, performance and design thought behind the crazy colourways. If you think you have the skills to (and a kit that won't clash too badly) then you can get your hands on both designs now from selected online stockists for around £75.00 GBP.
