Nike Football Boots in Australia – World’s First Design
Socceroo Jade North could be the first player to wear Nike football boots which feature exclusive Aboriginal artwork. The design not only appeals to the eye but following on from the Aboriginal tradition, also tells a story: in this case the tale of the player’s sporting life in pictorial form. The design has been created onto North’s white Nike Air Zoom Total 90 football boots.
The design was created by Indigenous Australian artist Darren Dunne with hopes that the style and colours will reach out and appeal to players far and wide. North and Dunne are discussing the design with Nike at the moment, and if approved, the unique football boot could go on sale worldwide. It is always intriguing when there is a meeting between a major corporation and culture dating back thousands of years and we await the Nike decision on these unique football boots with interest.
