In its quest to help players to maintain their game in order to excel further to the next level, sporting apparel giants Nike had recently launched their latest collection of football boots - the "4 Silo" with aim to help them in achieving that goal.
The "4 Silo" collection (L-R) CTR360 Maestri II Elite, Tiempo Legend IV Elite, T90 Laser IV & Mercurial Vapor Superfly III
Beside having a more dynamic outlook to give a much striking feel, certain details (i.e.: weight, grip, etc.) of these boots are being improved to enhance the level of performance of the players who are wearing them.
Alongside with their more illustrious global counterparts, four Singaporean footballers are also currently sporting these boots that gave them the "on-pitch advantage to dominate over others to suit each type of player and play style."
