Nike Lunar Tiempo ’94 Mid

Nike’s marquee shoe ahead of the World Cup has undoubtedly been the Tiempo ’94 as it pays homage to Nike’s memorable original foray into the sport during the 1994 World Cup in the United States. While we’ve seen a barrage of Nike Tiempo ’94 offerings that follow more closely a traditional disposition, Nike flexes its modern technological muscles through a new Lunar version. The midsole welcomes the use of Lunarlon cushioning with a further tech-driven upper with contrasting taped seams. Look for the two colorways to be available at select retailers globally.

Nike Uses 3D Printing in its 2014 Summer Football Equipment Collection

Consistently at the forefront of tech-infused sportswear, Nike incorporates 3D printing into latest football drop. Juxtaposing state-of-the-art innovations with traditional craftsmanship, the Nike Football Rebento duffel bag – originally seen here in slide six – sports a 3D printed base that combines with a premium leather upper in a “bold expression of technology and style.” Designed specifically for Neymar Jr., Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, each bag will feature custom gold hardware and a base that resembles the stud plates on the Magista and Mercurial boots. Taking cues from the Nike Flyknit pattern seen on the aforementioned boots as well, the laser-sintered nylon creates an intertwined weave on the bag’s base that will prove to be lightweight, yet durable.
Accompanying the Robento duffel bag, Nike releases the brand new Mercurial FlyLite Guard – first seen here in slide seven. Designed to offer protection without sacrificing speed, fit or comfort, this shin guard combines a specially-engineered webbed shock system at its back with an outer shell to deliver optimal impact protection with increased flexibility and breathability. That innovative webbed backing utilizes “pips,” which help absorb and disperse impact, thus protecting the shin while removing excess materials.
Although the 3D printed Robento may just be a player exclusive, the Mercurial FlyLight Guard will retail on July 1.
