Nike In Black
The new Nike Academy Pack is a nod to the Nike Academy players.
The Nike Academy is an elite development program for talented young footballers. The players who reside at the Nike Academy not only have access to world-class facilities and coaching, they are among the very first to wear Nike’s latest innovative products. In some instances, Nike Academy players have even tested blacked-out versions of Nike’s groundbreaking boots before the boots and their colors were officially revealed to the world.
But all-black boots aren’t just for wear-testing, they’re for any player with the understated confidence to let his talent do the talking. Some youth academies mandate that players wear all-black boots, lest individuals attempt to stand out on colorways alone.
As a nod to academy players who never fail to make a statement in muted black, Nike is launching the Nike Academy Black Pack. Unlike wear-testing boots, this pack will feature black gradient changes that amplify the design features of each boot. There is also a subtle pop of color on the sole plate. The Nike Academy Black Pack will be available via the Nike Football App.
The new blackout Nike Hypervenom Phantom Academy Pack Boot is the last edition for the first generation Nike Hypervenom Cleat. Made to shine in the spotlight, the new Black-Out Reflective Nike Hypervenom Phantom Boot features an all-black upper with a reflective Swoosh design. To herald a new era of the Nike Hypervenom, the blackout Nike Hypervenom Academy Pack Boot boasts a striking orange inner sole with a similar graphic pattern as the next-generation Nike Hypervenom 2 2015 launch color way.
The Blackout Reflective Nike Mercurial Superfly Boots feature a black Dynamic Fit collar and an all-black one-piece upper. The outlined Swoosh and the Mercurial logo on the heel are reflective, while the cleats of the Black-Out Reflective Nike Mercurial Superfly 2015 Football Shoe are lime green.
The Nike Tiempo Legend V Boots will also receive Nike’s blackout treatment, part of the Nike Academy Pack. Nike’s modern leather boot has a super soft Kangaroo leather upper for better ball control, combined with Nike’s All Conditions Control technology for ball control in dry and wet conditions.
The Blackout Reflective Nike Magista Obra Football Shoes introduce a completely black color scheme for Nike’s control boot. While the upper is all-black, the inner sole and the studs are volt to break up the dark look of the Nike Magista Academy Pack Boot.
