Nike Liquid Chrome Pack – An Investment in Quality

Nike launched their newest range of boots, the grandly titled Liquid Chrome Pack recently and to put it mildly they are VERY striking. Metallic finish, colours of red bronze, urban lilac, and metallic pewter, they are as ever, fantastic to look at. But what does it mean for the average footballer, the intrepid Junior baller, the Monday night astro legend – why should you buy them?

First of all a pair of boots are an investment – we firmly believe that. Looked after right, a good pair (and believe us the Liquid Chrome Pack are good), you can get three wears a week for a good eighteen months out of your boots. Economically speaking that’s a hell of a deal – you’re talking easily over 150 matches and training sessions in that time. Add in to the mix a good pair of boots will look after your feet and can give you that extra edge in terms of touch and control…. it all adds up to value for money even if the initial outlay seems a tad much. By the way, we get that, we know that sometimes people wonder why new boots cost so much, but there is genuine quality, technological advances, and craft that goes into new models and they will last as long as you take care of them. Good shoes are expensive, good high heels are expensive and we splash the cash on those with less hesitation and we do not wear them anywhere near as much as we do our football boots…

Take the Nike Tiempo Legacy  (below) – the new colourway makes this into one very cool boot but it also offers a leather heel lining and a moulded EVA sockliner for added comfort, while the Dri-Fit technology is a godsend for soaking football pitches around the country! The newly designed leather upper gives greater feel and helps with that all important first touch too. Basically this is a solid boot, that still manages to stand out with it’s design. And it will last. Value for money right there.

These boots are loud and proud, they stand out but they back it up (we’ll be honest we haven’t worn all of them yet in the heat of battle – the boss won’t let us take freebies sadly –  but have tried them all out and LOVE them).

The “sock” is probably something that still causes a double take for most people but it isn’t just an affectation – it locks the ankle in and helps prevent injuries. It is a step in the right direction, not a fashion look. The ACC (all conditions control technology does a wonderful job of making you a better baller too) and the shortened eyestay area (the laces part) gives a much increased sweetspot to smack the ball with – handy in every sport.

And for those who are still hesitant, each of these boots has the take down version without the sock liner – giving all the quality of the other model, just in the old school version!



So there you have it, the Nike Liquid Chrome Range – so much more than just fancy colours. They are boots that do a job, and do it well…. and provide value for money too. #MagicBoots!
