Home / Product Reviews / Nike5 Youth Elastico Review – Black with White and Tour Yellow


One final addition to the brand new styles that have just been released for the Nike5 series is the Junior Nike5 Elastico. The new youth Elastico’s have come in the store in two colors. One consists of white, gray, and peach while the other is white, black, and yellow. The one that I have in front of me is the white, black, and yellow version and it looks great.

As I stated above, the brand new color scheme consists of white, black, and yellow. The shoe is made out of synthetic leather with cloth around the sock liner and heel. The front of the shoe as well as the inner side of the toe box has overlays that help provide extra durability. Another feature that gives added durability is that the toe and inner front side of the shoe have a tougher material to help protect against the toes tearing apart from the tough indoor surface. The sock liner is made out of a soft cloth that helps provide great comfort and breathability. The outsole consists of low profile, non-marking rubber that is designed for ultimate traction and control on the ball.

These Elastico’s feel incredible on your foot. The leather is extremely soft for ultimate comfort and durability. The cloth that surrounds the heel and sock liner is very soft and feels much better than the shoes that are made out of leather. It takes no time to break these in and you will not have the problems with blisters that you can have from sock liners that are made of leather. The support on the forefoot and heel are also very good. They provide good comfort and a lot of stability that sometimes is lacking in indoor shoes. Another nice thing about these Elastico’s is that they are extremely lightweight which is very nice for indoor shoes. However, they do run a little narrow which is something you should take into account when purchasing these shoes.

These new Junior Nike5 Elastico’s are a great shoe at a great price. They cost $34.99 which is not too steep of a price for the quality shoe you are getting. The combination of comfort, durability, and lightness make this a great option for any young player that is about to start their indoor season.
