Nike GS Green Speed

No. 1 – Nike Green Speed

Released: July 2012
Availability: 2012 Pairs Worldwide

“Light, Fast and Eco-Friendly” was the tagline Nike matched to this boots release. In hindsite, we now know they were testing different performance characteristics, but at the time the limited edition release cause mass hysteria and a lot of interest. It was Nike’s advertisement of only using environmentally friendly products (a solvent-free Kanga-Lite synthetic upper, for example) that initially stirred interest, with the super-light 5.6oz weight also grabbing player attention. Even the boot laces, lining and tongue were made from a minimum of 70% recycled materials!

  1. Nice post. I think RVP's boots are the best because they are unique to him only and you can't even find that anywhere. It is not like they were made for a special occasion, he wears them all the time.

    By the way, have anyone noticed Brandon Marshal from the Chicago bears wearing hyper venom during the Thursday night game? Maybe you guys can write a post about NFL players wearing soccer shoes. I know mostly will be kickers and punters but it might nice to know who wears soccer cleats.

  2. I agree, I have seen more Nike id and great colorways on display from NFL kickers and punters, than I have seen all year from professional soccer.
