Nike Liquid Chrome 2015-2016 Football Boots Pack Released
The Nike Liquid Chrome Pack was officially unveiled today. Available to purchase from November 30 (Nike) and December 2 (general), respectively, the Nike Liquid Chrome cleat collection includes new colorways for the Hypervenom, Magista and Mercurial silos, while it's also home to the very first Nike Tiempo Legend VI paint job.
Nike players such as Neymar, Robert Lewandowski (Hypervenom) Eden Hazard, Alexis Sánchez (Mercurial), Andrés Iniesta and Mario Götze (Magista) will start wearing the boots from the Nike Liquid Chrome 2015-16 pack in this week's Champions League games. It will be in use up until mid-February.
"We wanted to create something that looks immovable — as if made of metal — but comes to life in motion," Nike Football Color Lead Emma Jobe explains while describing Nike Football’s Liquid Chrome Pack. "Light reflects off the boot when it comes in contact with the ball and produces almost a crumpling effect."Beyond producing an eye-catching aesthetic, the boots also conquer the challenges of working with metallic colors. "Metallics are inherently slippery, which is problematic in a sport where the color is in constant contact with the ball," continues Jobe. "It took close collaboration with our materials team to craft colorways that live up to our strict performance standards. We knew this was a look our players were drawn to, but we weren’t going to do it if we couldn’t do it right. These boots look amazing without any compromise.
Nike Liquid Chrome Pack - December 2015
Introducing the last Nike Mercurial Superfly Boot of the year, part of the Liquid Chrome Pack.
The first Nike 2016 football boots collection features a host of boots following a recurring scheme. A shiny metallic upper color is combined with subtle black and white accents and a few splashes of bolder details.
For the Liquid Chrome Nike Mercurial boots, Nike combines an Urban Lilac upper with a black and white Swoosh and Dynamic Fit collar. Bright Mango, actually the main color of the Nike Mercurial cleats following on the December 2015 release, is used for the inner part of the rear studs, a nice little detail. They are available as Nike Mercurial Superfly and also as a more traditional Nike Mercurial Vapor X variant.
Following the same pattern, Nike has designed silver Nike Magista boots and bronze Nike Hypervenom II cleats, both available in all different take-down models as part of the Nike Liquid Chrome football boots collection.
The new Pure Platinum Nike Tiempo, the first-ever colorway for the sixth generation of Nike's heritage silo, was already unveiled and is also part of the Nike Liquid Chrome Pack, even though the boots feature a much less flashy upper effect.
Revealed on November 23, the Nike Liquid Chrome pack will be available to buy from December 2, while a two-day pre-sale will be open via the Nike Football app.
