Nike USA T90 Chrome Ball

In a new piece for 2004, we engage in some shameless self-promotion by spotlighting a different U.S. Soccer product each month, from the newest, state-of-the-art Nike apparel to all kinds of other exclusive U.S. Men’s & Women’s merch.

Okay, so you’ve basically missed the boat on Father’s Day. Let’s hope you had a chance to get him a nice terrycloth tie from T.J. Maxx. Or perhaps an $18 pair of fashionable argyle dress socks from Eddie Bauer. But enough about Dad…

Now that school’s out for the summer and you have a chance to play every day, you’re going to need a good ball that’s both super-durable and cool-lookin’.

The new Nike USA T90 Chrome Ball, with its red billiard-style rings and "chrome" shine, is the hottest ball out there, if for no other reason than it has the ability to hypnotize opposing goalkeepers when you swerve toward goal. [Editor’s Note: Not really, but it does look like wicked cool with the rotating stripes once in motion.]

And not only that, this special version has the U.S. Soccer crest smack in the middle of the smallest ring in order to show your support for the U.S. Women at the Olympics in Athens in August and for the U.S. Men as they continue on the Road to Germany 2006 into the Fall.
