By mid-2016, the Nike Mercurial R9 was “reborn” again with 4 classic styles. Of course, it is indispensable to incorporate the latest technology of the sports giant NIke on the ‘upper’ and the sole of the shoe. Superfly technology (super light) plus ACC or ‘all weather control’ will surely be blown into this classic product line.
So far, the image of “fat” Ro wearing Nike Mercurial R9 shoes on his neck after Brazil’s defeat to France at the 1998 World Cup is still deeply in the minds of fans.
3. Lotto Stadio
To King Sports fans around the world, the Lotto Stadio brand seems very strange. This is understandable when only about 33 pairs of Lotto Stadio shoes are used on the pitch at the moment.
However, this was a “nailing” product with such legends as goalkeeper Dino Zoff and striker Ruud Gullit. This is considered to be the first shoe model to launch fashion accessories in order to cover sports shoes.
With low nails and a higher number of nails than other types of shoes, Lotto Stadio is a suitable product for players in countries with hot weather, the face is often less watered so dry.
In today’s digital boxer shorts, Luca Toni is the only player who has been loyal to Lotto Stadio products since the beginning of his career. In 2014, as a tribute to his loyalty, Lotto produced a special edition of Stadio Potenza II named after Toni. Featuring ‘Luca’ and ‘Toni’ on both sides of the heel, this version is sold with only 500 pairs worldwide.
4. Nike Tiempo
On July 17, 1994, Brazil and Italy clashed at Pasadena, Calif. At the World Cup. Of the 22 players who played, 10 wore the legendary Nike Tiempo Premier football shoe. Since then, the Nike Tiempo has become a monument, a flag in the football shoe industry.
For more than 20 years, Nike Tiempo products have always been distinctive, that is the upper always made from Kangaroo leather. Nike later applied technology to create new materials, combining natural Kangaroo leather with synthetic leather. This makes the Nike Tiempo shoes both soft and supple and smooth like genuine leather, even more durable and water resistant than genuine leather.
The stars who are and are using this product line can be mentioned as Romario, Paulo Maldini, Ronaldinho, Pirlo and Pique.
