Nike Motivation Pack

Blake Grice

Just in time before the 2021/22 season opens! Nike gives us the Motivation pack, giving the Mercurial, Tiempo, and Phantom a bright colourway to inspire a fantastic start to every football player’s campaign this year. Regardless if you’re in for speed, control, or touch, there’s an equivalent boot for you to enjoy the end-of-summer pitch.

Specifically, the Mercurials glow with a predominantly volt paint job, applied to both upper and soleplate. Complementing the yellow-green shade is the crimson accents of the midfoot speed band, Aerotrak spine, and the off-sync Swoosh Fill on the lateral side. Capping off the look are the black brandings, lateral Swoosh outline, and the cosmetic Speed Wings.

The new Phantom GT 2, on the other hand, adds white to the colour combination. It appears on the top section of the upper demarcated by the black webbing graphic of the GT2. The lower areas go with volt on the rear and crimson on the front. The open-arch Hyperquick stud plate structure is also black.

Lastly, the 2021 Tiempo generation has the same GT colour palette, arguably more dynamic in look than the predominantly white Rawdacious Tiempo. The leather front part of the White Volt Tiempo is white, while the rear and the soleplate’s ball area go for crimson. The arching Swoosh and heel Tiempo logo opt for volt with a black border, with the Tiempo branding on the outsole going for the reversed colour application.
