Just as the current Nike Phantom Venom Future Lab II, the Nike Total 90 Laser III launch colorway from late 2009 boasted a striking look in green, red and black. The official color combo was "Electric Green / Red / Black" - the cleat was mainly green with black logos and striking red for the ‘shot shield'.

The Nike Total 90 Laser III was designed for a cleaner strike with more power and swerve - the result was that remarkable instep area with the 'Shot Pad'.

The remarkable feature of the Nike T90 Laser III are five pods on the instep that create a uniform contact point that creates a smoother surface for even pressure distribution. The pods are configured as five separate units that operate as one to remain flexible and fluid when interacting with the foot.
