The new Nike GS Football Boot is the lightest production boot Nike have made to date. Designers stripped back the boots’ construction and included only the most essential materials. Each boot weighs just 160g (size 9).

Despite the Nike GS Football Boot being lightweight, its ‘green’ credentials are most certainly heavyweight. The sole plate with anatomically positioned studs is made of 50% renewable Pebax® Renu (a plant derived material made with 97% castor beans). Touch and control are aided by a solvent-free Kanga-Lite synthetic upper with a lightweight, chemical-free sock liner made of 100% castor beans designed to eliminate any layers for a snug fit.

Nike’s lightest, fastest and greenest production boot ever.

Seleção Striker Neymar will wear Nike GS Boots this summer.

Available from August 15th 2012 at nike.com for £250/ $300.
