21 April 2013, Singapore – Nike launched 3 new footwear shoes, Nike Bomba Finale II, Nike Elastico Finale II and Nike Lunar Gato II. Each shoe is created to provide a balance of speed, control, comfort and precision based on specific court surfaces. All three shoes feature new outsoles that house a flexible groove along the first metatarsal that helps free up that part of the foot allowing a quicker first-step to improve agility in tights spaces.
The Bomba Finale II, in a striking orange and black colorway, boasts 27% less components than its predecessor creating softer and more flexible shoe that is also 10% lighter than the previous version. Conical studs for quick rotation help aid the rapid turns made in small-sided games while oblong studs help provide excellent traction and stability on the turf.
The Bomba Finale II along with the Elastico Finale II are both equipped with new ‘NIKESKIN’ technology, a Poly Urethane skin layered over a performance mesh making the shoe lighter and thinner than its predecessor, creating a closer, stitch-free fit. The mesh geometry meanwhile combines with one seamless vamp, aiding closer ball control. In addition, the Nike Bomba Finale II features Nike’s All Conditions Control (ACC) for consistent ball control in dry and wet conditions.\A dynamic green design marks out the Elastico Finale II, which features 39% less components than its predecessor and is also 22% lighter than the previous shoe. The more flexible outersole, designed for hard-court surfaces, features a herringbone and dot design to help maximize traction and improve underfoot ball control. The Elastico Finale II also features a breathable perforated upper and heel, and a redesigned eyestay to optimize comfort and feel.
The Lunar Gato II, launching in a distinctive blue and yellow, is a product designed for a fast and dynamic game on all surfaces. Featuring 33% less components than it’s predecessor, it is also 16% lighter. The supple leather used on the upper improves the ball-to-foot feel. The soft and supple leather also eliminates a break-in period while a contoured sock liner helps gives an anatomical fit.
Fused mesh panels lock down the mid-foot helping maximize lateral support and gives the Lunar Gato II a fine balance of lightweight and comfort.
The new Nike Lunar Gato II, Nike Bomba Finale II and Nike Elastico Finale II will be available at Nike.com from the 1st April and retail from SGD $149 – $159 at Weston Corporation.
