With the revolutionary Nike Flyknit and Dynamic Fit collars prevalent across current Nike Football silhouettes, the admiration of leather boots was still highly regarded.
Nike’s design team explored the potential of fusing leather to Nike’s iconic football silhouettes in 2014 and ultimately, a premium range of hybrid leather boots with this Nike Tech Craft is introduced.
Featuring the Hypervenom, Magista, Mercurial and Tiempo — each silhouette incorporates a thin layer of leather across the medial and lateral sides of the forefoot, while retaining its original aesthetic and performance attributes, but with the soft touch and classic appeal. In addition, Nike All Conditions Control was integrated into the component to ensure enhanced ball control in both dry and wet conditions.
The new Nike Tech Craft is currently available from the Nike Football App and slated to arrive at Nike retailers on Thursday, August 13.
I like the application of leather. It makes it even more sleeker and appealing in my opinion.
