Nike unveils Clash Collection

As the countdown to Euro 2012 builds momentum, Nike has released the new boots that will be worn by players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Andres Iniesta, Wayne Rooney and Gerard Pique.

Nike's Mercurial Vapor VIII, CTR360 Maestri II, T90 Laser IV and Tiempo Legend IV boots will feature a "colour clash" design of traditional white with a bold second colour, signifying each boots style.

The boots will be debuted by Nike players in the Champions League Final in Munich on May 19, and then worn by national team players in Poland and the Ukraine in the Uefa Euro.

The Mercurial Vapor VIII features a solar red signifying "explosive speed", the CTR360 Maestri II a "blue glow for the assured midfielder", the T90 Laser IV "electric green for the deadly striker" and the Tiempo Legend IV "black for effortless and classic style". "The clash of traditional white with very modern and youthful colours will make a really powerful and disruptive statement on pitch," Andrew Caine of Nike says.

"The Nike Clash Collection delivers highly engineered boots with sharp colour contrast reflecting the clash of rivalries and competition we will see this summer. We're celebrating that with distinctive and stand-out colour."

Re-engineered boot built for explosive speed.

Combines innovation and style with a seamless fit, touch and traction to beat defenders and capitalise on key moments. Teijin Microfiber upper offers a sleeker, closer feel to the foot with a suede-like finish increasing ball control and touch.

Anatomic Last takes the fit of the boot to a new level of support and stability Unique plate construction incorporates two different pieces of glass fiber to increase flexibility and responsiveness.

CTR360 Maestri II
Designed for the midfield maestro to dictate the tempo with accurate and incisive passing. Cushioned zones on the lateral forefoot give great first touch ball control – Receive / Pass Pad for control and accurate passing.

Asymmetrical lacing design creates an expanded ball control area. The plate offers energy return and strength, with bladed studs for optimal traction and stability.

T90 Laser IV
The ultimate striker's boot for capitalising on that one moment to turn a game. 20% lighter than the T90 Laser III and featuring a streamlined silhouette for enhanced fit and feel. Reconfigured shoot and swerve zones on the instep of the boot flex naturally as the foot connects with the ball, enhancing a cleaner strike.

Remodelled studs to maximise traction without increasing stud pressure for players.

Tiempo Legend IV

Tradition and heritage combined with innovation to deliver a classic boot.
Premium leather is strong and soft, giving extra comfort, touch and control. Lightweight TPU plate delivers combination of strength and agility. Remodeled stud configuration delivers optimum traction.
