State-of-the-art innovation meets traditional craftsmanship in the Nike Football Rebento duffle bag. The 3D printed base combines with a premium leather upper in a bold expression of technology and style. Designed for the game’s best players, only three bags have been created and will be carried by Neymar Jr., Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo this summer in Brazil. Each bag features custom gold hardware with the player’s name. The bag references the stud plate of two groundbreaking Nike football boots—the Magista and Mercurial—with a unique graphic on the base of the bag. Taking cues from the Nike Flyknit pattern of the Magista and Mercurial, the laser-sintered nylon creates an intertwined weave on the bag’s 3D printed base. The 3D print also gives the bag body and creates a lightweight, yet durable structure that allows for flex. Handcrafted, premium leather is used on the bag’s upper and straps, which seamlessly fits into the 3D printed base without the use of glue or adhesive.
