The next generation Elastico Finale lands as Nike continue to shake-up their small-sided game line-up.

The Elastico Finale III drops in as an accomplished support act to the recently released Elastico Superfly and plays a similar role as the Vapor X plays to the Superfly IV - labelled as a top end alternative rather than a take-down. Although the introduction of a Dynamic Fit Collar on the Superfly, Magista Obra and Elastico Superfly is admired as the pinnacle of innovation Nike still acknowledge that it isn't for everyone, hence the launch of the Mercurial X, Magista Opus and now the Elastico Finale III.

Nike's FC247 collection has dominated the small-sided game for a number of seasons and their latest upgrade to the Elastico Finale III features a turf sole usually reserved for the Bomba Finale as well as an indoor version found on the previous generation. Further tech updates include a tongue-less Vapor X-esque design for a more comfortable, locked-in fit and NikeSkin for increased ball control. Inside the shoe is a shock-absorbing EVA material to ease the strain on the joints and muscles when playing on hard surfaces.

The Nike Elastico Finale III is available from selected online stockists including Pro-Direct Soccer. Thoughts? Drop your comments below.
