Mastering High Demand Launches

The Nike Hypervenom Boot Global Reveal


  • Ensure the success of a global launch campaign.
  • Architecting a dynamically scaling system for high profile content delivery.

Collaborating with Nike’s team on such a dynamic project was both exhilarating and rewarding. Drawing upon our technical expertise to contribute to the triumphant debut of the Hypervenom boot was a distinctive highlight.”


Nike, a globally renowned sports brand, planned an audacious global launch for their Hypervenom football boot. The challenge: Design a microsite that could shoulder the immense weight of international traffic this high-profile event would usher in.


Create a seamless digital experience that could captivate a global audience and withstand the intense demands of concurrent international traffic during the Hypervenom football boot’s theatrical launch.


The international scope of this project mandated a robust and globally distributed platform. After extensive reviews, Amazon Web Services (AWS) became our platform of choice for its proven dynamic scaling capabilities and global presence. Java and Spring Boot, known for their resilience, were selected as the backbone technologies.

Anticipation was built around locked boxes, set to simultaneously unlock during a live stream across the globe, revealing the much-awaited boot. Any technical hiccup could tarnish the brand’s image and the product’s debut. Thus, the right technological choices were paramount.

To guarantee a seamless experience, we initiated thorough system testing. Distributed calls were utilised to stress-test applications. Meanwhile, we employed a multifaceted content delivery approach: using Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) for local caching, implementing intelligent caching within browsers to reduce repeated server calls, and leveraging in-app caching to alleviate database loads. This strategic blend aimed to maximise bandwidth for incoming users.



The meticulous planning and strategic technical choices paid off. The microsite performed admirably under the immense pressure of an international audience, ensuring the Hypervenom boot was launched with the drama and global attention it deserved.
