There are few things that we love more than the over indulgence that comes with a Nike presentation case! Reserved for the hottest boots on the planet, it comes as no surprise to see Nike repackage the Green Speed in a hard-hitting box.
As always, Nike ensured that the case made its traditional stop-off at SoccerBible HQ for us to share and take a look! The boots may have sold out in a matter of minutes, but that's no reason to not take another look at one of the biggest boot releases of 2012.
At 160 grams of recycled and renewable engineering, Nike GS is built for high-speed control, designed around the natural movement of the foot for a super natural fit. A Revolution in the boot world, Nike have once again pushed back the boundaries of boot design and construction
Nike have stripped back to the essential elements of a performance boot, as the GS delivers a deadly combination of lightweight innovation and recycled materials. Conceived and engineered in Italy, the Nike GS will be worn by Brazil striker Neymar at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The Nike Green Speed football boots are made from at least 77% castor beans, which require less water to grow than other natural materials. The Nike GS tongue and quarter are made of form fitting recycled polyester, made from 95% recycled plastic bottles.
The solvent-free Kanga-lite synthetic upper provides zonal reinforcement for exceptional touch and control. The material is also better for the planet, manufactured with 35% less carbon emissions compared to traditional materials.
The vamp has been designed to deliver a supernatural fit, by discovering a way to mimic the feel and responsiveness of Kangaroo leather while improving resistance to heat and cold and better recovery after stretch.
The Pebax Renu heel counter is molded in an anatomical, asymmetric shape to lock the foot down for better response and control. The outsole is constructed with an eco-TPU derived from castor beans - a material 15% lighter than traditional TPU.
For those of you who were quick enough to pre-order a pair, you'll be one of only 2012 people to own the super limited Nike GS. As for this presentation case, only a handful were made and distributed worldwide. Luckily one made its way to SB HQ!
