Nike GS: Deadly By Nature
Nike re-engineered the traction plate spine for explosive speed: coring out a diamond silhouette for optimal flex and agility. Made with 50% Pebax Renu, derived from 97% castor beans, the most renewable resource Nike have used. The Nike GS traction plate combines a high performance chassis with a strong responsive and agile form.
The Pebax Renu heel counter is molded in an anatomical, asymmetric shape to lock the foot down for better response and control. Made with at least 77% castor beans, which require less water to grow than other natural materials.
Anatomically positioned studs maximize speed in multiple directions for optimized responsiveness on the pitch. Constructed with an eco-TPU derived from castor beans- reducing our impact on the world's food resource and satisfying only our appetite for innovation with a material 15% lighter than traditional TPU.
The Nike GS tongue and quarter are made of form fitting recycled polyester, made from 95% recycled plastic bottles. The Nike GS is Nike's lightest football boot ever at 160 grams (size 9). The Nike GS will retail for $300 with only 2,012 pairs available.
