In the lead up to Christmas, Soccer Reviews will be bringing you a whole host of exclusive boot leaks. We’ve already posted about Nike’s Euro 2012 colourways, a new stunning Mercurial Vapor VIII and the match ball for the 2012/13 Premier League season, so go check those out! Today we have an indoor edition featuring the never before seen Nike5 Gato Especial, a new line of the ever popular Gato series. Thanks to the Boot Spy for these exclusive images!
From the specs that we’ve read, the Nike5Gato Especial are almost identical to the regular Nike5 Gato. However, Nike boast that the Especial “brings new innovations to the small sided game”, what these innovations are… We’re yet to find out. The same leather medial overlays that the ‘regular’ Gato have are on the Especial as well as the Cushalon technology, seen prominently on Nike’s running shoes. Cushalon provides the wearer of the shoe with more comfort and stability.
While we’re not too sure what makes the Especial so special, there’s no doubting that these are two great looking colourways. It may well be though, that the Especial’s are a prime example of what Soccer Reviews reader, Wolstad, was talking about when he said: “Nike doesn’t make new products. They make new designs”.
We’ll keep you updated on any new developments regarding the mysterious Gato Especial so stay tuned to Soccer Reviews.
