"Is this real? It looks futuristic!" - those were the first words Tim Howard, USA Goalkeeper Legend, used after trying on the "Mercurial Vapor Touch"!
And it was a perfect shot!
They look like coming back from the Future"! The focus of several NIKE product tests was definitely on him - and the result of all the attention is:
1. A revolutionized entry-system with a flexible but strong entry without any wrist bandages
2. A fantastic weight reduction means 33% lighter and 47% thinner
3. A tremendous unbelievable Grip: this goalkeeper glove has a feeling of a second skin
4. Totally new developed and produced palm made of latex with ultimate grip: All Conditions Control (ACC)
5. A very nice and futuristic design in black and neon-yellow
In the end a fantastic innovation from NIKE and the beginning of the future, like Tim Howard said: "It will become the normal".
Available May 2018!
The first test with the brand new and revolutionary NIKE Vapor Touch is done! We have tested the goalkeeper gloves with professional, amateur and youth goalkeepers. Our main protagonist was Admira Wacker Mödlich (Austria) Goalkeeper - Andreas Leitner (24).
"The NIKE Vapor Touch and me - it was love at first sight! This goalkeeper glove is the future! "First he started with low expectations and scepticism about those gloves, but after he grabbed the first ball and made the first save he was more than convinced. "This glove misses all the unnecessary frills! That's why he is so special!"
The Pro goalkeeper was overwhelmed by the flexibility of this glove: "He adapts to my hand and my fingers perfectly! It's like getting a tailored suit from a designer except of the fact that I couldn't afford this!", he added with a grin.
Thanks to the ACC-Palm (All Conditions-Control) he had a perfect grip on every occasion. After the one hour training session every goalkeeper who had the chance to test the new NIKE Vapor Touch was convinced about the grip this glove is providing. Without the waistband and the typically closure everybody felt a bit insecure at the beginning, but that changed quickly! Practise session passed!
