Nike has unveiled a new generation of their Spark Brilliance Pack, but this time, it’s for the ladies. Launching alongside the USA Olympic jerseys for the Rio games later this summer, the new colorways for the Mercurial Superfly, Hypervenom Phantom, and Tiempo Legend cleats. The three cleats take inspiration from America, more specifically the colors that we all identify with being an American. The cleats will go perfectly with the new jerseys that will be donned in Rio and around Brazil and truly be one of the most patriotic displays in a full kit since the Denim kits Alexi Lalas and the team used to rock.
Let’s start with the leather boot, the Tiempo Legend. We have a full review on the Legend VI and really enjoyed the quality of material Nike used to create such a stunning leather boot. The women’s colorway features a white leather base with a blue tongue and heel counter. The Nike swoosh and Tiempo accent marks are a vibrant Red color that helps the Nike tick stand out. The soleplate fades from white to blue with the same Vibrant red making up the Tiempo branding. The tips of the studs are Volt to show a different color splash on the USA boot.
The Hypervenom Phantom is dressed in the same colors with a bit of a different scheme. White upper with a red Nike swoosh on the heel area. The speckled design is a beautiful mix of blue specks and white spaces to create a clean look. The soleplate carries this same pattern much like the pattern on every other Phantom II release from Nike. The collar is blue with a red top lining to contrast the white upper. The upper is the redesigned NikeSkin that is from the first generation Phantom and the latest release for the men as well. The studs tips are again a Volt color and add some pop to the colorway.
Last but not least, the Mercurial Superfly V is easily the best looking release in the pack. The speed ribs help create a nice pattern that alternates the white and blue all the way back to the heel where the boot turns all into blue and up the collar. The exposed underlay in the collar is red with the trim on the top also red. The Nike swoosh is red with a white outline that works perfectly with the colorway. The soleplate is white with blue inside of the plate to create a nice translucent look. The tips of the studs are Volt like on all of the boots from this pack.
If you’re looking to celebrate this July 4th and Olympics with some patriotic footwear, then look no further than the Women’s Spark Brilliance Pack from Nike. Even if you aren’t looking at the cleat in a way of USA colorways, you have to appreciate the color palette Nike has used to create yet another stunning women’s pack. Sizing note, the Women’s pack will be available in Women’s sizing. If you are looking for a men’s size, add a size and a half to your normal size and you should be good to go!
