Football boots make all the difference in a game, on top of that, you'll have to have some skill. Every little bit of weight can make a difference, and Nike's new GS soccer boot is the company's lightest thanks to its minimal design made of renewable materials.
For example, a size 9 Nike GS boot weighs 5.6 ounces, which is heavier than a five-ounce iPhone and a full ounce less than Nike's next lightest boot, the 6.7-ounce CTR360 Maestri II FG. Nike said it achieved the lightweight design with a material called "Pebax Renu" which is made of 97 percent castor beans.
Nike was able to reduce the weight of the plate by 15 percent. The Nike GS will be available in August. [Nike]
