REIMAGINE THE FOOTBALL BOOT
When re-imagining something as fundamental as the football boot, we start with possibilities: How fast can a boot be? How light? We didn’t set out to improve on precedent—we set out to create a new one. With no guidelines restricting the pursuit of the perfect boot, the GS2 designers let their imaginations run wild.
F(ORGET) THE RULES
Where performance is concerned, rules are nothing more than limitations. We’re not concerned with playing it safe. To make a football boot like none that came before it, we let go of everything we knew. We gave convention a red card.
INFORMED BY THE GAME'S BEST
Our athletes are testing the limits of football every time they set foot on the pitch. The game is faster and more demanding than ever. That means a revolutionary boot can’t just keep up—it has to be a step ahead. We asked our athletes what they need to dominate today’s game, and set out to give them tomorrow’s boot.
When committed to true innovation, nothing is off limits. Inspiration may strike from high...or underfoot. Nike was on the hunt for new processes and materials to engineer a better, faster, lighter boot. We considered every option, no matter how unlikely.
BEAN IS BETTER
Nature provided an answer to our quest for high performance boot materials with the mighty castor bean….a key ingredient in our lightweight traction plate. And renewable. This sparked our imagination to create a boot lethal on the pitch with lower environmental impact. There were those who said it couldn’t be done...and that’s how we knew we were on to something.
LIGHTEST. FASTEST. GREENEST.
We continued to re-invent a better boot meeting the demands of our athletes and the planet. After our breakthrough with castor beans, we sought better ingredients for nearly every part of the boot. No compromises.. Laces, lining and tongue—recycled. Traction plate and chassis—derived from renewable castor beans. Bio-based foams. That’s how we arrived at Nike’s lightest, fastest, greenest boot.
Each pair of GS2 boots are hand-crafted at the Nike Football Innovation Lab in Montebelluna, Italy. Innovative engineering meets world-class precision and craftsmanship.
DEADLY IN ALL CONDITIONS
Control the game in rain or shine. The GS2, Nike’s lightest, fastest, greenest boot is engineered to perform in all weather conditions.
GOODBYE CONVENTION. HELLO INNOVATION.
