Blackout hype. Nike do it in the dark for an alternative summer vibe as the Hypervenom, Mercurial and Tiempo join the debut PhantomVSN in suits of stealth to make up the complete "Stealth Ops" pack.

Submerged in a body of black, the Hypervenom 3 DF offers players a more traditional aesthetic ahead of the new campaign. The blackout trend is one that has brought summer heat this month, with adidas also dropping their "Shadow Mode" pack in a stealth-like feel.


A fitting funeral suit for the Hypervenom? The silo has been knocking around since 2014 and Nike may well give the boot a shake-up as they re-shuffle their pack, as they've already done by replacing the Magista with the PhantomVSN. The Hypervenom "Stealth Ops" is also launched in a lo-cut edition for players after that more familiar silhouette. Smart.
