The new technology, called the All Conditions Control or ACC, allows the Nike boot’s surface to maintain friction, touch and control on the ball, whatever the conditions may be – wet or dry.
The upper materials are specially treated to deliver a consistent feel on the ball at all times. Weather plays a major part wherever football is played. Take London for example, on average it rains 125 days during a season.
The need for consistent touch and feel on the ball in wet weather is an insight shared by many footballers Nike’s design teams talked to, including FC Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta.
Nike boots combine the latest design innovation and performance, with boots for each style of play. ACC is now available across all Nike boots including Mercurial Vapor VIII, Tiempo Legend IV, CTR360 Maestri III and Total 90 Laser IV.
Mercurial Vapor VIII
Mercurial Vapor VIII takes performance innovation to the next level with a boot built for explosive speed. The Vapor VIII combines innovation and style with a seamless fit, touch and traction.
CTR360 Maestri III
Designed for the midfield maestro to dictate the tempo with accurate and incisive passing. Control pad on the instep fits closely to the foot for seamless response. Lateral deboss design creates a soft vamp that benefits touch and control of the ball.
T90 Laser IV
The ultimate striker’s boot for capitalizing on that one moment to turn a game. Featuring a streamlined silhouette for enhanced fit and feel, while reconfigured shoot and swerve zones on the instep of the boot flex naturally as the foot connects with the ball.
Tiempo Legend IV
Tradition and heritage combine with innovation to deliver a classic boot. The premium leather is strong and soft, giving extra comfort, touch and control.
Nike’s ACC technology will be available on all Nike boots starting October 15, 2012.[sl_gallery]
