Nike Launch The 'Rising Gem Pack'

Celebrating some of the best young ballers in the game, Nike launch the ‘Rising Gem Pack’, which sees a uniform colour-up for the Phantom pairing of GX II and Luna II, the Air Zoom Mercurial pairing of Vapor XV and Superfly IX, and Tiempo Legend X.

At the beginning of any player’s journey is raw potential. Over time, motivated by a love of the game, that player pushes past pressure and obstacles to reach the biggest stage in the game. Now, Nike acknowledge the effort and brilliance of these young players with the ‘Rising Gem Pack’, which sees a premium presentation for the brand’s roster of boots, which all feature striking details throughout to elevate their looks.

Nike’s current lineup of Air Zoom Mercurial (in both Vapor XV and Superfly IX versions), Phantom (in GX II and Luna II options) and Tiempo Legend X all take on an “Atmosphere Grey/Black” colourway, elevated by shining details in the soleplates. For the Mercurial, there’s chrome details bordering the bright pink pop of the Air Zoom unit in the forefoot, a look echoed by the Phantom boots, which see the pink highlighting the Cyclone 360 technology in the forefoot.

The Tiempo is independent of those two models, with a turquoise soleplate.

All three silos feature special embossed executions on the Swoosh, which standout through their contrasting black colouring.

There will be a host of players switching into the ‘Rising Gem Pack’ in the coming weeks, including Rasmus Hojlund, Joshua Zirkee, Roas Kafaji, Nicolas Jackson, Tabitha Chawinga and Jennifer Echegini.
