As the clocks go back to officially mark the end of the summer season, the nights become darker and the weather colder across the northern hemisphere.
To combat gloomy weather and stand out on-pitch, Nike has created the Hi-Vis Collection of winter apparel, footwear and equipment enabling athletes to train and play at the same intensity throughout the season and with zero distractions.
The Hi-Vis Collection features bright and contrasting colour combinations of Volt, Electro Purple, Green Glow and Electric Green on the apparel, footwear and equipment.

NIKE PRO COMBAT HYPERWARM
The colder weather can take a toll on athletic performance. The cold air, snow and rain can lower body temperature and lead to decreased stamina and physical frustration.
Designed to combat the elements, new Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm base-layer apparel helps keep body temperature regulated in a variety of weather conditions with breathability, water resistance and a streamlined fit.
“Nike’s Pro Combat Hyperwarm top is an important part of my playing and training kit in the winter months, to keep me warm, dry and comfortable on the pitch, and focused and ready to play,” said Paris Saint Germain superstar, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Worn in top international, amateur and professional football leagues, Hyperwarm product helps keep athletes warm and dry and helps provide athletes with a physical and mental advantage in training or competition.
NIKE PRO COMBAT HYPERWARM DRI-FIT MAX SHIELD MOCK
With a long-sleeve, mock-neck silhouette, the Nike Pro Combat Hyperwarm Dri-FIT Max Shield Mock provides warmth with breathability.
This top features Nike Shield technology to keep the lower arms dry in the rain or snow, while Dri-FIT Max pulls sweat away from the skin to help reduce chill. Large ventilation over high-heat zones helps regulate temperature – an important attribute for peak performance.
Dri-FIT Max technology removes sweat more quickly to keep athletes drier and warmer, helping to reduce the chill-effect. The top is available in multiple colours including a stand out Hi-Vis Volt and Electro Purple.
NIKE HI-VIS INCYTE BALL
This weekend the Nike Incyte Hi-Vis Ball will be introduced into the Barclays Premier League, La Liga BBVA and Serie A.
Continuing the tradition of making the most technologically advanced footballs in the game, the Nike Hi-Vis Incyte ball features performance innovations that are designed to help increase reaction, touch, ball flight and visibility.
The new Hi-Vis Incyte Ball features:
Nike RaDaR (Rapid Decision and Response) technology maximizes the ball’s visibility allowing players to see the ball earlier and react faster.
Five-layer construction optimizes the feel of that all-important first touch, allowing the athlete to bring the ball under control quickly and with ease.
A high-elasticity layer on the surface allows for a cleaner strike and helps the ball travel with more speed.
The micro-textured casing also delivers a more accurate ball trajectory than seen before.
NIKE HI-VIS FOOTWEAR COLLECTION
For the Hi-Vis Football Boot Collection the Nike Hypervenom and Mercurial Vapor IX come in a combination of Electro Purple and Volt with black detailing.
The Tiempo IV and CTR360 come in a mix of Volt, Green Glow and Electric Green with Black detailing.
