During the match between Crystal Palace and Leicester City, Wilfried Zaha distinguished himself with a pair of Nike GS 360.
Every Monday on footpack, we tell you about the most beautiful pairs of crampons seen on pitches around the world. But when it comes to a pair like the Nike GS 360, it’s hard to wait until next Monday. Worn this Monday by Wilfried Zaha during the match between Crystal Palace and Leicester City, this pair is not the model of the time, namely the Nike GS 2 from November 2012, but a personalization resulting from the reissue of 2018 Despite everything, it remains magical.
Wilfried Zaha with a pair of Nike GS 360 against Leicester City
Since the start of 2020, Wilfried Zaha has proven how much he loves crampons. Indeed, in recent weeks, the Crystal Palace player has played with many iterations of his usual Mercurial Vapor 13. Whether it’s the Safari version of CR7, the Joga Prismatico and Speed Freak from Neymar, the Rosa from Kylian Mbappé or even an entirely red ID version, the Ivorian international loves crampons and it shows! Lately, it is with the Mercurial Dream Speed 003 that he evolves and it is even with this pair that he played the first half of the match Crystal Palace – Leicester City this Monday. On the other hand, upon returning from the locker room, the player arrived with a sublime pair of Nike GS 360 customized and of course recalling the pair from 2012, the Nike GS 2.
Launched in the continuity of the first model embodied by Neymar during the 2012 Olympics, the second version was considered the most ecological pair of crampons in the world since it is made from renewable and recycled materials and optimized to reduce weight and waste. Thus creating the lightest Nike football boot ever designed at the time with only 160 grams on the counter (in size 9), the American brand had relied on many players such as Theo Walcott, Eden Hazard, Raheem Sterling, Mario Gotze, Christian Eriksen and El Shaarawy to promote this model.
Reissued in 2018 in its black / green color and worn by Kylian Mbappé, this pair also offered the possibility of personalization. A choice that Wilfried Zaha seems to have made since the model worn is not the one from the time when a large ACC marking appeared in Safari print. In the personalized version, we nevertheless find this black / white divide on the forefoot so emblematic. Another little wonder at the feet of the Crystal Palace player then. It remains to be seen what Wilfried Zaha has in store for the rest of his career, one thing is certain, he would be a great customer for our Vide Ton Sac series! The call is launched.
