The Total90 Laser III

The Best Laser Ever is HERE!

Introducing the new

Nike Total90 Laser III FG Cleats (Electric Green/Black/Challenge Red).

The following info comes directly from the source:


Interactive Training Drills and Expert Coaching From Juventus FC Combine with New Total 90 Laser III boots to Improve Accuracy and Power

Nike has unveiled the next generation of its Total90 Laser boot - the Total90 Laser III - featuring a newly configured ‘Shot Shield’ strike zone (patent pending) designed for more power and accuracy. Purchasing the boots opens access to Nike Soccer+, a digital coaching program (available via web, mobile internet or iPhone application) to help players improve their skills with access, insights and instruction from top players and coaches.

Every pair of Total90 Laser III boots comes with a unique user-code that allows online access to Nike Soccer+ featuring accuracy training drills and expert tuition provided by the coaching team at Italian giants Juventus FC. The Nike Soccer+ digital experience also features a detailed ‘signature move’ coaching session from Fernando Torres of Liverpool FC.

“I worked closely with the Nike design team on the Total90 Laser III, and it definitely provides another dimension to my game and a greater feel for more accuracy, power and swerve,” says Fernando Torres, of Spain's Euro 2008 Championship team. “What I like about the Nike Soccer+ system is that now every player can improve their skills with tips from myself and insights from top coaches on the pitch or on the go.”

“We are creating the best performance boots available today”, comments Nike Soccer GM Bert Hoyt. “But more than that, combining this technology with the Nike Soccer+ digital coaching program means you are not just buying a boot, you are buying a total game improvement package.”

During development of the aggressively-styled electric green, red and black Total90 Laser III, Nike designers broke down the 'biomechanics' of striking the ball into specific elements to help them gain even deeper understanding of the boot to ball relationship. Particular attention has been paid to the instep area and how players connect and put swerve on the ball.

The result is a newly created Shot Shield designed for a cleaner strike on the ball for increased power, ball swerve and accuracy.

Greater Precision at High Velocity:

Modular Instep – five pods on the boot create a uniform contact point that creates a smoother surface for even pressure distribution. The pods are configured as five separate units that operate as one to remain flexible and fluid when interacting with the foot.

Enhanced Accuracy:

Advanced shape-correcting memory foam – provides a smooth and more consistent surface to enhance accuracy when shooting. This unique foam adapts to the demands of the individual player.

Increased Friction, More Swerve:

Engineered Fins – raised TPU fins on the medial side of the boot deliver increased friction on ball contact to ensure more swerve when you need it most. Each fin is strategically angled and sized to enhance control over ball trajectory, but fold on contact with the ball to accommodate great touch and feel.

The Total90 Laser III is available in premium-grade Teijin synthetic leather, or premium leather for overall fit, comfort and performance.

The Total90 Laser III design team also repositioned the eyestay to a more asymmetrical position to allow a cleaner strike surface and easier fit and adjustment of the boot. Stability and comfort is enhanced with reinforcements to the external heel counter and outsole.

Nike Soccer+ digital coaching program can be accessed at The Nike Soccer+ accuracy training package follows on from a control package launched in October 2009, and will be followed in 2010 by a speed coaching program related to the Nike Mercurial boot.

A Very Special Customer Feedback

When I read this comment today, I knew I had to share it, for so many reasons. Once you've read it, you'll understand why:

"The items I purchased at World Soccer, Manchester United flip flops and a stuffed Santa Claus, were greater than I had expected and could have hoped for. My daughter, a US Army soldier and an avid Manchester United fan, will be spending Christmas in Afghanistan this year. Her packages had to be sent by December 1 to ensure their receipt by Christmas. At the time I initially placed the order for the flip flops, I mistakenly ordered the wrong size. When I called World Soccer to inquire whether I could exchange them for the correct size and explained my dilemma regarding the shipping time table I had to work within, World Soccer Shop requested I thank my daughter for her service, and then immediately sent out the correct size. To my amazement, World Soccer also asked that I send the flip flops that were the incorrect size to my daughter along with instructions to give them to another soldier. What contemporary, new-age company could be more American than that? And, what other company's light has shined brighter and shined above that of World Soccer Shop this holiday season?"

Querétaro 09/10 Home Soccer Jersey

There are few things we get excited about more here at WSS than getting gear for a team we've never carried before. That is exactly why we're super psyched to bring you - for the first time ever - the Official Pirma Querétaro 09/10 Home Soccer Jersey!

About Querétaro Fútbol Club

In 1949, the Mexican Soccer Federation proposed the idea of creating a "Segunda Division" to grow interest in the game and to create a development program for the first division. Querétaro was one of the cities that received an invitation to participate. Alfonso "pachín" Niembro, then president of the Asociación Queretana de Fútbol, and Raúl Ayala, who represented Querétaro at the national level, with help from large numbers of locally based amateurs, decided to organize a tournament, the winner of which would represent the city of Queretaro in the new division. The tournament was won by a team named "Los Piratas", who became "Club Querétaro A.C." They joined Irapuato, Zacatepec, Toluca, Morelia and La Piedad as the founders of the Segunda División. The team's official foundation date was July 8, 1950. Later journalist Herrera "periquín" Pozas bestowed the nickname of Gallos Blancos (White Roosters) based on the club's "willingness to fight for every ball" and their characteristic white uniforms. The team quickly developed a large local fan-base.

About the Jersey

The shirt is a very sharp black with nice undulating royal blue stripes down the front, flanked by cool mesh strips the rise toward the shoulders. It features a polo-style collar, the embroidered team crest over the heart, and Pirma logo on the center chest.

Philadelphia Union 10/11 Home Authentic Soccer Jersey

The Philadelphia Union is the newest club to join Major League Soccer - the 16th team in the top soccer league of the United States.

We're proud to introduce, the aididas Philadelphia Union 10/11 Home Authentic Soccer Jersey!

The Jersey

The official jersey, like the crest, incorporates the colors – midnight blue, with light blue (of the flag of Philadelphia) on top and bottom of the jersey, as well as the tip of each sleeve - of the Revolutionary Army and is a salute to the Club's fans and the history of the Greater Philadelphia Region.

Among the features of the club’s first game jersey:

The embroidered club crest is centered on the front on a wide panel of Union gold; above the right breast: the adidas logo, maker of all official Philadelphia Union gear; on the right sleeve: an MLS patch; on the left sleeve: an American flag; back of collar: “Jungite Aut Perite”, Latin for Join or Die, Benjamin Franklin’s rallying cry for colonial unity.

As with adidas' big teams, it is made with adidas ClimaCool® - advanced material engineered to reduce heat and moisture build-up, allowing increased comfort and performance – to keep you feeling fresh no matter how long you play, train and cheer on your Zolos!


In 2007, the Sons of Ben supporter group formed and began advocating for Major League Soccer to grant Philadelphia an expansion team. They are credited with convincing the league that the area already had an established soccer fan-base.

Major League Soccer added Philadelphia as its sixteenth team on February 28, 2008. The finalization of the club is the result of a $47 million package approved by Delaware County politicians and Pennsylvania governor, Ed Rendell, that includes the cost of Union Field and a major urban renewal project. Keystone Sports & Entertainment's plan for Chester was initiated in late 2006, soon after the New Jersey legislature terminated an earlier proposal for a soccer-specific stadium at Rowan University.

On May 11, 2009, "Philadelphia Union" was officially announced as the team's name during a ceremony held at Philadelphia's City Hall. This name alludes to the Union of the Thirteen Colonies, of which Philadelphia was the first capital. The team's name was chosen following a fan poll held between January 19, 2009 and February 6, 2009. Before the Union moniker, the Sons of Ben nicknamed the team as the "Zolos." At a "Meet-the-Owners" event held two days before the expansion press conference in Chester, they wore nametags with handwritten numbers intended to read "2010." The number was mistakenly interpreted as "ZOLO" by ownership group member, Nick Sakiewicz. This led to Philadelphia Union being referred to as the "Zolos" in a series of inside jokes by the group.

Germany 09/11 Home TechFit Soccer Jersey

adidas flagship team, Germany National Team, have launched their new 09/11 home kit, which they will wear for South Africa 2010. Not only that, adidas has also launched limited edition TechFit jerseys: yes, the authentic versions of the shirts the players wear on the field, down to the last detail. We have TechFit versions of most of the adidas federations that launched new kits this past week: Argentina, France, Mexico, Russia, South Africa & Spain.

About the Germany 09/11 Home TechFit Soccer Jersey

Podolski, Klose, Schweinsteiger & Ballack will look good and be ready to perform in South Africa with this form-fitting authentic shirt: in traditional white, and for the first time featuring three stripes in black, gold and red on the sleeves. The special jersey also includes screened design details and embroidered Germany team badge. Engineered mesh for the ultimate in moisture control and comfort; made of polyester/spandex blend with a seamless construction. Comes in a commemorative box.

About TechFit

(The information below is of provided by adidas and of a highly technical nature.)

The adidas Innovation Team has introduced many ground-breaking concepts, and TechFit featuring Powerweb takes performance apparel to a new level. By studying athletes’ muscles and how they move, ait has developed a breakthrough that can be applied to almost any sport.


adidas TECHFIT™ PowerWeb is at the cutting edge of athlectic design. Through the use of compression fabrics and applied TPU bands in specific areas, TECHFIT™ Garments give you the ultimate edge whether expoloding out of the blocks, chasing down a shot, or manoeuvring through the defence.

TECHFIT™ PowerWeb is designed to focus your muscle’s energy to generate maximum explosive power, acceleration and endurance, so you don’t just perform, you outperform.

TECHFIT™ Seamless

adidas TECHFIT™ Seamless garments combine the benefit of compression fabrics that stabilize muscles, and seamless-knit construction to ensure maximum comfort so you can concentrate on what you do best.

TECHFIT™ Seamless garments are available in 3 levels of compression to suit your needs, and feature CLIMACOOL® and CLIMALITE® technology to keep you cool and dry where it matters.

TECHFIT™ Tuned Compression

adidas TECHFIT™ Tuned Compression uses the Seamless Melted Yarn technology to achieve the highest level of flexible compression.

Melted Yarn zones of high compression are focused on large muscle groups, aiding in the delivery of oxygen and prevention of muscle vibration. Zones around the lungs and joints are designed to be flexible, creating a garment with greater comfort and mobility.


Compression is a widely used technology for improving athletic performance; in simplest terms, it involves wrapping muscles in tight-fitting fabric. The base material used in adidas TechFit with Powerweb is Lycra Power®, which offers industry-leading compression benefits. In addition, the ait group uses a combination of silhouettes and mesh inserts that allows for maximum range of motion, breath-ability and comfort.

Compression has a number of proven benefits including:

• Enhanced proprioception and body awareness, which means better form and technique.
• Reduced muscle vibration, which lessens the wasted energy that comes from muscles that wobble or shake during sport.
• Improved muscle recovery, and less wear and tear during workouts.


Powerweb is a series of TPU (Thermoplastic Urethane) bands which are pressed onto the base layer of TechFit apparel. There is no other technology like it. The bands are anchored at key points, such as around the waist or above the knees and are focused on key muscle groups (such up upper legs or shoulders). Working in unison with muscles, they function like springs.

When an athlete moves, one set of muscles contracts while an opposite set extends; the bands mimic this, stretching on the extension side to store elastic energy. When the process is reversed and the extended muscles contract, the bands snap back to their shorter length, providing an athlete with more power.


Compression was introduced by adidas in 1998 in the swimming category. It was used in the first full-body swimsuit, and created a new standard in performance apparel, with athletes including Ian Thorpe swimming to gold wearing it. Since then, many athletes in many different sports have found the benefits of compression.

But adidas looked to improve the already proven compression idea, and linking the key muscle groups became the idea to chase. To create a way to do this required some work - from stiffening the existing material by burning it to adding various types of other materials - the ait group soon found TPU (Thermoplastic Urethane). This material provided the elasticity and return stretch needed, with a simple application to fabric that wouldn’t be detrimental to the garment’s fit or comfort.

One of the first prototypes of the suit caused a big surprise in 2003, when sprinter Kim Collins became World Champion in the 100 meters in Paris. Since then, the technology materials and applications have been further refined, with the latest developments available at retail in 2007.

Testing Results and Benefits

So, besides the fantastic results of the athletes wearing it, how do we know that TechFit with Powerweb works? Science has shown it. In controlled laboratory tests, conducted together with the University of Calgary, an average 5.3 percent improvement in power output and 1.1 percent faster sprint time was measured over 30 meters. Even more impressive, the testers registered a 1.3 percent reduction in oxygen consumption while wearing TechFit with Powerweb - a clear indication that the onset of fatigue is delayed and that performance is enhanced.

Each comes with its own ring stand commemorating the year in which it was used. Also included in the package will be a ring for your official 2010 adidas FIFA World Cup Ball.

Since they were the first African nation to qualify to South Africa 2010, we thought it fitting to have Michael Essien's Ghana be the first of the African nations' new jerseys we spoke of.

World Cup Soccer Ball Collection

We can't show you this collection of 10 Official adidas World Cup Matchballs until October 19th (mark your calendars!), but our adidas representative, former NASL player, Adrian Brooks, brought a sample of the collection with him to our Birmingham office. We all got a unique chance to look at these up close!

He also shared the following story about the TelStar:

After the 1966 World Cup, Adi Dassler, founder of adidas, decided to create a special soccer ball which would be ideal for television, still fairly new at the time. Thus was born the famous TelStar ball! Making its first appearance in 1970, this ball was a simple black and white hexagonal design, created because, as you know, TV was black & white back then.

Manchester City 09/10 Third Soccer Jersey

They're the talk of the Premier league. The team pipped by the pundits to break the top four in England very soon. And we've got their stunning new Official Umbro Manchester City 09/10 Third Soccer Jersey!

The white jersey with the sash is a throwback of the one they wore in the 70s, and has been described as a ‘classic remastered’.

According to the kit designer, the shirt is a modern interpretation Of City’s original sash design, but with the sash moved to the other side. One of the reasons for doing this is was to draw attention to the crest, and this was done with the full support of the club and the club’s sponsor, ETIHAD. It was important that the sash did not distract from the crest but instead created a frame for the crest.


For the last decade, or so, any shirt with a design across the front is compromised with a space where the sponsor sits. Well this is a pure football kit and the sponsor - whether it is a brand or a manufacturer - should look to compliment the kit. By placing the sponsor under the crest and not breaking the sash, was blended contemporary with traditional design. This goes to show that innovation isn’t always about technology.


This shirt makes a statement. It stands out from the crowd - globally as well as domestically. The new shirt demonstrates that a sponsor can enhance rather than compromise a design.

New Nike Superfly

These cool new 6.8 ounce boots Nike Mercurial Vapor Superfly Soccer Boots, hand-crafted in Italy, are so light, you could fly to space with them, or feel like you're a cosmonaut, with such neat colors as Orion Blue/Metallic Silver/Obsidian/Max Orange!

What follows is very technical info, which you'll find fascinating if A: you're a bridge engineer or B: a soccer boot connoisseur who loves getting the latest and greatest and all things soccer. Either way - enjoy!

The strength of Nike Flywire technology can be found in strategically-placed filaments acting like cables on a suspension bridge and offering support precisely where a foot needs it. These strong filaments allow for a minimalistic shoe upper, reducing weight to help create Nike's lightest football boots ever. Further refinement with help from bio-mechanics experts in the Nike Sports Research Lab resulted in optimal placement of the filaments. Ultra-thin Teijin material covers the top of the foot, with the Flywire technology attaching to the outsole and holding the foot in place. The Mercurial Vapor Superfly is the lightest football boot Nike has ever made. Flywire technology allowed the shoe to be stripped of all unnecessary pieces without compromising durability.

10 grams lighter than the first generation, the Mercurial Vapor Superfly's revolutionary outsole combines a 3 layers / 12 bars carbon fiber TEPEX® thermoplastic chassis engineered for flexibility (forefoot) and stiffness (arch), with direct Injection molded studs.

The 12% weight reduction was achieved by coring-out the 4 heel studs as well as 4 of the forefoot ones. The direct injection process becomes clearly visible with the studs structure being called-out in the signature NIKE Max Orange. Not only are these studs lighter - but they're stronger and more durable.
