A stealth launch | Nike presents the 'Pitch Dark' pack


Written by Frederik Tobias Thorgny Hansen

We've got some great news for all fans of Nike and black football boots. Nike launch the 'Pitch Dark' pack - a real stealth launch of the Mercurial, Magista and Hypervenom. But where is the Tiempo?

It's summer, the transfer window is about to open soon, and Nike has just revealed a jaw-dropping black collection for the pre-season.

It's hard not to get a little bit excited by that, because honestly, who isn't a fan of black boots? At Unisport HQ we certainly are, and Nike is absolutely killing it with this pack.

Continued below.

Common for the trio are the white soleplates and the black uppers, but each of the models has its own detail colour. The Mercurial stud tips are 'University Red', the Magista's are 'Stadium Green', and the Hypervenom features the blue "Game Royal" colour.

Besides the traditional cool black colour update, which in itself is enough to get us hyped, Nike doesn't present any new technologies with this pack. This means that you still get an all new NikeSkin design, for an improved touch - but also support around the ankle and mid-foot, if you choose the Magista and Hypervenom, and the Mercurial still offers low weight and a great touch - and surprisingly good comfort. And of course you'll also get all the other existing Nike technologies from the previous Magista, Hypervenom and Mercurial as well.

But something's missing. Oh yeah, that's right, it's the Tiempo. And we think, we know what that means... A new Tiempo Legend design update may be on its way, and we're of course tracking this the days to come. So stay tuned, Nike might be off to something big here!

If you're as hyped as us about the 'Pitch Dark' pack, you can get the boots right here.
