Last year, Nike introduced the first ever EA Sports football boot and now it looks like they are turning it into a yearly tradition. With the 2016 Mercurial they featured an old school 8-bit graphic, but this year they fast forward the aesthetics to 2018 and beyond. The graphic treatment on the upper is therefore inspired by the Real Player Motion Technology that EA Sports will introduce for the first time ever on FIFA 18.
You can sign up here and get a heads up once the boots go on sale. They will be released exclusively on our site on the 25th of September.
It’s obviously more advanced than what I can explain, but basically this new motion technology increases the accuracy of how the players both look and feel when you play with them in the game. This data was collected by Cristiano Ronaldo and other big players wearing motion capture suits and once EA had this information they created special wireframe graphics to match the player movements. This wireframe look has been transferred to the upper and more specifically the strike zone of the Hypervenom, which gives it a dynamic and pretty radical look. It can be hard to see from a distance, but if you have the boots in hand or swipe through our gallery below here, then you really get an impression of the details.
