Didn’t get your hands on a pair of the much coveted Nike GS football boots? Well, do not fret as Nike is set to release a new model of the boot this Christmas, and thanks to Borussia Dortmund wonder kid Mario Gotze, we’ve been given a good look at what you can expect from the new boot!
The most hyped boot of all time, the Nike GS, caused massive panic around the world as football boot fans flocked to online retailers this summer to get their hands on a pair of the extremely limited revolutionary concept boot. If you have watched, or listened rather, to any of our podcasts, you would know that Nike have been planning on releasing a new GS due to its extraordinary and unprecedented success, with the expected release date set to be around Christmas time.
Check out our YouTube video (see above), for more images of the Nike GS 2.0 (that is not the official name, rather one we just gave the boot for the sake of differentiation). Based on the images from his one training session with Germany, Mario Gotze appears to have an almost exact replica of the original Nike GS just with a few changes here and there.
The obvious and biggest aesthetic change (other than the colorway when it launches!) appears to be a different soleplate, or at least a different design with a large white stripe running though the middle of the boot. Other than that, there don’t really seem to be that many big changes, at least based on this blackout boot.
With Nike’s announcement of reducing its carbon footprint and effectively eliminating all natural leather from its boots, the Nike GS with its environmentally friendly ethos is set to become a widely distributed boot after previously being the epitome of an exclusive and limited edition release. What do you think? Does this demean and diminish the exclusivity of the first Nike GS? Leave your comments below!
