New Nike Boots The Greenest Boots Available

 
Everyone’s favourite shoe manufacturer last week announced the Nike GS 2 Boot (soccer shoe) is being billed as delivering “seamless ball control” and “low environmental impact” — a heady combination, to say the least, but worth your attention nonetheless.

The Nike GS 2 is described as being “the lightest, fastest production boot Nike has ever made and the most environmentally friendly boot available.”

It also features “All Conditions Control (ACC) technology,” which sounds to me as if it’s actually a car but apparently delivers enhanced ball control in both dry and wet weather conditions (which, in hindsight, still leaves it sounding like a car).

Nike Boasts Most Environmentally Friendly Boot Yet

Nike said on its website that “the Nike GS 2 boot is constructed using renewable and recycled materials” and “has been optimized to reduce weight and waste.” Featuring recycled and renewable materials throughout the upper and plate design, the boot laces, lining, and tongue are made from a minimum of 70 percent recycled materials, while the toeboard and collar feature at least 15 percent recycled materials.

The Nike GS 2 will be worn by some of Europe’s best young players, including Theo Walcott, Eden Hazard, Raheem Sterling, Mario Goetze, Christian Eriksen, and El Shaarawy, which I assume must be a good thing if those names turn out to be famous footballers and not the Nike press editor’s past babysitters.
