Football boots and apparel have advanced tremendously over the past 20 years. But goalkeeper gloves, much like the players who wear them, have often been overlooked — until now. Nike is changing the game for keepers with the most advanced goalkeeper gloves ever introduced: the Nike Mercurial Touch Elite.
Our team began the creation process by throwing out all assumptions about what gloves are supposed to have simply because they’ve always had them (things like straps, bulky padding on top of the hand, multiple components and so on). At the same time, we applied key learnings from other gloves Nike has developed across a wide spectrum of sports, including surfing, baseball, American football and golf. The result is a glove that delivers everything goalkeepers need and removes anything they don’t in an innovative design tuned to the modern game.
The Nike Mercurial Touch Elite gloves look, fit and feel different than previous styles. By reducing the bulk and stiffness of traditional mitts, the gloves are designed to unleash the ultimate potential of a goalkeeper's hands. The strap has been replaced by a flexible wrist cuff that extends from the joint to the lower forearm for mobility and comfort.
The glove’s minimalist aesthetic is a result of a 66-percent reduction in the number of components than the previous glove. And, thanks to the removal of superfluous padding on the back of the hand, it's also 33-percent lighter and 47-percent thinner. Punch prints on the third and fourth knuckle provide a barrier and won't bunch up, and they lay close to the hand, even with full extension.
Each glove is constructed with a one-piece gusset. The high-grip palm features Nike’s proprietary ACC (All Condition Control) for mastering the elements. These features are designed to support saves as well as ball distribution.
“The initial reaction is always, ‘Whoa!’ because they just look so different and cool,” says English keeper Jack Butland, who was part of the product-testing process. “But it’s when you play in them that the performance benefits come through. I feel like I have a lot more control in these gloves and they can help take me to the next level.”
In accordance with their Real Tree FW releases this January, Nike is offering premium bags to add to the collection. Featuring both a Profile Backpack and Messenger Bag, both in an AOP Olive Canvas/Black colorways, these bags are equipped to accompany you through your greatest endeavors. With a sleek profile and multi-faceted pocket and zipper system, both bags are perfect to be used as everyday accessories, whether it’s on the go for light storage, or your next hiking or gym bag, these bags are truly all-in-one.
Kyrie carries his team during crunch time. With the Kyrie Backpack, you can carry your gear all the time. It loads from the top and includes a cinch cord and buckle closure. Zippered pockets on the lid and at the sides keep all your things secure. The padded, contoured straps adjust and help to evenly distribute weight. External, open compartment with cinch cords stows dirty gear and textured bottom panel enhances durability.
With multi-color design details that nods to the Playstation 4—Paul George's gaming console of choice—the Nike PS x PG Backpack features a top-loading design, so that you can store your gear easily. It comes with adjustable shoulder straps that provide a personalized fit when you're on the go.
Designers Virgil Abloh, founder of OFF-WHITE, and Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior Homme, partnered with Nike to approach the beautiful game from two distinct perspectives.
For Abloh, football is an opportunity to blend memories of his youth — playing hip-hop tracks on the way to high school soccer matches, for instance — with his interests in mixing lifestyle and sport branding. It's big and bold and full of nuanced visual cues. In a word, his collection is predicated on the visceral.
Distractions Disappear with Nike Mercurial Flylite SuperLock Shin Guards
Shin guards are often regarded as a necessary evil. The protection is required, but any additional weight or shifting within the sock can create discomfort. To deliver the benefit of shin guards without the distractions, Nike created the game-changing new Mercurial Flylite SuperLock shin guards.
The new shin guards feature small spikes on top of the face of the guard that safely pierce the sock, locking it into place. The entire surface area of the guard is covered with these safe, lightweight spikes for an aggressive look and precision placement, no strap or sleeve needed.
