As the winter season approaches, match day conditions tend to become darker and drearier across the football landscape – something that especially holds true for the England-set matches of the Barclays Premier League – therefore making visibility one of the most important components to the game. Thus, Nike Soccer has introduced a seasonally apropos “High Visibility” collection of boots to both combat the conditions and stand out under the shine of the stadium floodlights. Featuring the likes of the Hypervenom, Mercurial IX, CTR360 and Tiempo IV, the collection employs heavy use of Electro Purple, Volt, Green Glow and Electric Green hues throughout – thus transferring Nike’s continued scientific color insights from the soccer balls to the feet of the players themselves. Said Phil McCartney, vice president of Nike Football Footwear: “This collection of boots is not for the faint-hearted. Our athletes don’t play to be conventional – they play to be remembered.” Nike’s “High Visibility” Boot Collection for Fall/Winter 2013 will soon be available via Nike’s online store.
