So here we go, a new year starts now! I like to start the year of 2016 with talking about the Nike GS Concept which was released in 2012. Imagine it’s 4 years since it was released. I think “GreenSpeed” left a good impression in the world of football boots!
Nike constructed the boot by using renewable and recycled materials. The main goal was to reduce wight and waste in every singel component of the boot! They done that and also did they create the lightest boot weighting 160 grams back in 2012.
The Nike Kanga-Lite upper produced over a third less carbon emissions when it is manufactured than traditional materials.
The laces, lining and tongue of these Nike GS Concept football boots were all made from a minimum of 70% recycled materials while the toeboard and collar feature at leat 15% recycled materials.
