The Nike Academy Black Pack Pays Tribute to Academy Players

The Nike Academy Black Pack features an absolutely gorgeous array of all-black boots that will be worn by prospects at the Nike Academy, an elite development program for talented young footballers. The players chosen to take part in the Nike Academy will be among the very first to wear these blacked out shoes.

Given that many soccer academies mandate that players only wear black boots -- so they don't try to stand out via fancy colorways -- this shoe is an apt way to pay tribute to academy players with understated confidence and expressive ability.

In a shoe market where everyone seems to be trying to outdo each other using over-the-top and eye-catching colors, the Nike Academy Black Pack is a breath of fresh air as it encourages players to let their talent and skill do the talking.
