Nike launch their first boot collection of 2018 with a noticeable absentee. What we're looking at here is the Nike Fast AF pack. Nah, it doesn't mean that, well not officially anyway. Fast Audacious Football is the official title as the Magista, Hypervenom & Tiempo are placed out front to welcome an imminent arrival.

With the next-generation Mercurial set to launch on February 7, the Fast AF pack throws "Dark Grey" and "Total Orange" wraps around the Magista, Hypervenom, and Tiempo to tease the launch colourway of the upcoming Mercurial explosion. It's a relatively modest collection that will perhaps allow the Mercurial to stand out upon release. Expect all Nike players to wear the collection on pitch as they move out of the Fire & Ice colourways that were launched in late 2017.


The Hypervenom 3 is also brushed in mellow tones as Nike pair up that "Dark Grey" upper with their trademark "Total Orange" colourway. The bright orange palette has been synonymous with Nike Football throughout the years, from the huge launch colourways, to the boxes the boots are presented in. A splash of it features on the Hypervenom here, but we'll take a punt on it being more prominent on the Mercurial.


The Magista Obra II is approaching the two year mark since it was launched in 2016, so don't expect too many colour updates after this one. A "Dark Grey" front of the boot is matched with a "Total Orange" colourway at the rear of the boot and up onto the Dynamic Fit Collar. The Magista also drops in an Anti-Clog soleplate option, as well as a lo-cut Opus edition.


The Tiempo Legend 7 completes the Nike AF Pack in typically low-key vibes. An all black upper replaces the "Dark Grey" design and a bold "Total Orange" soleplate creates a punchy aesthetic down below. The Anti-Clog version takes on an even darker design as black submerges the entire boot, apart from the white Swoosh and "Total Orange" lace aglets. Take your pick.
