Nike Drop The SoCal Pack

Celebrating all things Southern California, Nike drop the SoCal pack (Southern California, get it?), a mini capsule that groups the Air Zoom Mercurial Superfly IX and Phantom GX II with the small sided specialist that is the Street Gato.

With a bright flourish that’s sure to catch the eye, Nike drop their latest limited edition boot collection, which is inspired by the sights, vibes and creativity of Southern California. The collection sees the Air Zoom Mercurial Superfly IX and Phantom GX II scattered with tributes to Southern California across the designs of each. They are then joined by the Street Gato, which is slightly more toned down when it comes to aesthetics.

Presented in a vibrant “Sail White/Blue” colourway that’s representative of the region its named after, the boots in the pack feature nods to the area through not only the colours and shapes that represent places and landmarks where local players have carved out a career from their hometowns to the global stage, but also through direct callouts to the likes of Pasadena, Studio City, Isla Vista and more. Celebrating the sunny disposition of Southern California, each pair even comes with a hang-tag bottle of suntan lotion.

The pack will be led by Alex Morgan and Alyssa Thompson, but you can expect to see these boots popping from further afield than that. Hard to miss ‘em…
