2016-17 Nike “Spark Brilliance” Pack Released For 2016 Rio Olympic Games

Nike welcomed in a new pack called 2016 Spark Brilliance this morning for 2016 Rio Olympic Games, and this one has two major talking points.

First, we get an introduction to the latest Mercurial Superfly, the 5th installment in the series, via a vibrant two-tone colorway. When announced a few months ago, we discovered this boot was built as a total speed system and features a new plate mapped to the natural contours of the foot.

The new Cheap Mercurial’s from soccer-bp.com anatomical plate is aligned with the natural contours of the foot, eliminating the gap that previously existed underfoot. Additionally, the boot’s soleplate is 40% lighter than the carbon fiber plate it replaces, yet it is stronger and more responsive.

The Spark Brilliance Pack also marks the return of the original Hypervenom NikeSkin upper on the HyperVenom II silhouette. Nike also provided some insight into why they made a dramatic change.

The upper of the Hypervenom II takes a bit longer to break-in than the Hypervenom I. We provide new boots to our professional players so frequently that we shifted to the Hypervenom I material to ease the break-in period.
