Mascherano and Piqué Train in Unreleased Nike Boots

The wait is almost over. Barcelona center backs Javier Mascherano and Gerard Piqué laced up in the new Nike Magista and Tiempo colorways from the upcoming Nike Liquid Shift Pack, confirming their imminent release.

Barcelona Players Show Off Nike Liquid Shift Collection

The Nike Liquid Shift Pack takes the chrome uppers of the preceding Nike Liquid Chrome Pack and downgrades them to a supporting role; they only fill the iconic Swooshes on the boots from the next Nike collection. The chrome Nike logos are accompanied by colorful uppers, purple and red in the case of the Magista and Tiempo, respectively.

Barcelona will take on Valencia in the Copa del Rey tomorrow, and with the Nike Liquid Shift Pack being released tomorrow, too, it's possible they'll already be debuted there.
