The Nike Football Rebento Duffel – the world’s first 3D printed performance sports bag. What an absolute beauty.
It has been designed for the game’s best players, with only three being created and will be carried by Neymar Jr, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo this summer in Brasil. Luckyyyyy!
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.
“We wanted to create something that was truly special for the game’s greatest players,”
said Martin Lotti, Creative Director for Nike Football.
“We did this by utilizing one of the most cutting-edge technologies – 3D printing – to make a bag that is unlike anything else.”
Rebento is Portuguese for “explode,” an apt verb to describe today’s game. The Nike Rebento 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. 3D printed hardware allows for unprecedented levels of customization and opens new possibilities for integrated individuality.
