Nike Release 50th Anniversary “The 1971”

Nike Limited Edition 1971 FG

Nike officially dropped a special release this morning, “The 1971”, a boot to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their first ever boot, “The Nike”, created for the 1970 World Cup.

This is the type of release that is going to have the old school traditionalists smiling from ear to ear, a true classic with the exact specifications of a release from that era.

A soft black leather upper is adorned with the iconic white Nike swoosh. Inside the cleat, you’ll find a graphic reference to the Mexico 1970 World Cup. Underfoot, a classic white soleplate features 13 conical studs – the dominant outsole design at the time these cleats first hit the market. Originally, the brand name was not Nike – it was Canada Footwear company, this why there is a reference to Canada on the tongue. And the actual boot was called “The Nike.”

This is a special edition release with a very limited number of pairs available in the US.
