Nike Football Rebento Duffel – The World’s First 3D Printed Performance Sports Bag


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.

Nike Golf is planning to unveil a new TV spot that features Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy whom Nike just inked as a paid endorser of the brand.  The 60-second spot is produced by Wieden + Kennedy, and is set to air from Wednesday, January 16th to Monday, January 21st on ESPN and The Golf Channel in the United States, on TSN in Canada, and on Sky Sports in Europe.

This commercial reminds me of the old Michael Jordan and Larry Bird McDonald’s  spot that depicted the two legends going tit for tat on who can make the most unique shots. The same holds true for Woods and McIlroy as they are captured on the driving range taking turns one-upping each other by making amazing shots into a variety of different cups. Enjoy!
