The Premier uses Nike’s most anatomical football last to date, as also seen on the new Hypervenom, which helps place the foot closer to the ball and ground for greater touch. The premium leather used for the upper sets the benchmark for softness and feel for leather-based boots, and the transitional flex in the sole plate provides a firm midfoot combined with a flexible and responsive forefoot. The sole plate’s design also provides excellent traction on a variety of surfaces.
“A lot of players will see the Nike Premier and be reminded of the early-to-mid 1990s. When they put the boot on and get out on the pitch, they will soon realize that this is a 21st century product.”
The Premier launches in North America on June 1 and will be available elsewhere from July 1.
