Lovell Rugby Product Review: Nike Total 90 Laser III Rugby Boots
Introducing the new Nike total 90 laser 3 Rugby boot. This is now Nike’s 3rd edition of the highly popular Boot as worn for Rugby by England’s Danny Care, Ugo Monye, Andy Goode and Wallabies Full Back Adam Ashley- Cooper. The bold colour used in the new boot was used to maximum effect ensuring the boot is seen on the pitch. The boot will be worn in the Upcomming Heineken cup games and six nations and is sure to impress.
Nike designers broke down the biomechanics of striking the ball into specific elements to help them design the ultimate boot for power, accuracy and comfort.
Five pods in the strike zone create a uniform contact point for a smoother surface resulting in even pressure distribution. The pods are configured as five separate units that operate as one to remain flexible and fluid. This will help anyone striking a Rugby ball achieve greater distance and accurancy.
Advanced shape-correcting memory foam provides a smooth and consistent surface to enhance accuracy when shooting.
Engineered Microfins, ie. small raised TPU fins on a honeycomb panel deliver increased friction with the ball to ensure more swerve. Each small fin is strategically angled and sized to enhance control over ball trajectory, but folds on contact with the ball to accommodate great touch and feel.
The laces have been repositioned to be more asymmetrical for a cleaner strike surface and easier fit and adjustment of the boot.
Reinforcements to the external heel counter and outsole ensure comfort and stability.
UPPER: Premium-grade synthetic leather for comfort and touch. MIDSOLE: Molded EVA with poron insert that reduces stud pressure. OUTSOLE: Lightweight TPU with optimal stud placement for stability and traction.
In Lovell Rugby’s opinion this is a serous contender to rival the Predator X in the Power boot market!
