Nike held an innovation summit today in Madrid to showcase some of its technology and collections for the upcoming World Cup. Of course, the new Magista was on display along with some Volt & Hyper Punch colorways in both the Hypervenom and Tiempo boots. Some other highlights include:
- Athlete’s Journey- Player Collections: a collection for players to wear throughout various moments during the tournament.The collection outfits players all the way from warm-ups, anthems, playing and training, to media appearances, travel and downtime in the training camp.
- Off-Pitch Collection: The N98 Track Jacket, The Nike League Polo, Nike Tech Pant, Tech Fleece Full Zip Hoody, The IRD Saturday Jacket and Tiempo ’94.
- Artist Collaborations: Amongst those projects inspired by football is a collaboration with the Nike Skateboarding team and graphic artist Flip. The collaboration encompasses three limited edition jerseys for Brasil (home and away) and the U.S. (away). The shirts use the same performance materials and innovations as the Official Match jersey –worn by the players on the pitches this summer.
- Further Projects: Hurley’s national team boardshorts, a special edition version of the Air Jordan 6 to celebrate Brasil’s quest for their sixth star, and a Yellow Gold METALUXE edition of the Nike+ FuelBand.
