Following the revision of the initial pattern during the review of the first pullover, the initial colroway specifications are created. Typically the specifications are done only at this time after the first corrections so that any modifications to pattern (ie. new parts, logos, etc.) can be included in the specifications.
The first prototype sample made following the specifications is called the First Colorway Sample.

Specification drawings (colorways) are created in Adobe Illustrator, detailling all the parts, logos and details. Each part is assigned a number so that detailed descriptions can be made in a specification sheet (see below).
The first colorway selected for the 6.2 Concept FG is a Gold/white/Gold combo. This colorway takes full advantage of the innovative design and croc emboss material adding an exciting, highly visible aesthetic. This colorway was designed for the player who is 100% confident of their skills and their own personality and is looking for a way to express themselves on the field.
The second colorway, Black/Black/Black, takes a more refined and subtle approach to personal expression. The entire upper is all black, with contrasting shiny black SuperMicrofibre and and more matte, leather-like finish used on the vamp. Inspired by shiny tuxedo and men's fashion shoes, this colorway mixes the contemporary with tradition. Refined in a classic dress shoe the overall approach is innovative for a football boot. Different than anything else on the field, this colorway is simultaneously subtle (all, black including the logos and studs) and screaming (shiny black croc!.
The specification sheets for the selected colroways are created to list full detail for each part. The specification sheets list Pantone color, material, material detail (ie. thickness, supplier) and also addition hidden construction elements such as collar foam, reinforcement, stitching, etc.
