  • Nike release the Premier II Sala ‘Joga Bonito’

    Those in their mid-to late-twenties and beyond will always react fondly to "Joga Bonito" - a term that fills you up with nostalgia thinking back to the golden era of Nike’s iconic ad campaigns back in 2006. Ads which still haven't been bettered to this day and which featured Ronaldinho, the man who truly epitomised everything to do with the term which translates to “play beautifully.” 

    The ads also featured cameos from King Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Brazilian national team which was one of our personal favourites. We'll never forget those airport scenes with Ronaldinho, Denilson, Ronaldo and the rest of the lads running amok with the ball.  

    This era was entertainment and care free football at its finest, and these new Nike Premier II Sala IC shoes aim to bring back that pure joy all these years later.

    You know a pair of futsal shoes are great when you can comfortably wear them off court – these are in that category and some.  

    The shoes feature a pigskin overlay on the upper which is soft while also providing touch specifically tailored to street-style surfaces. The vibrant sole, a tie back to TV bar colours, features springy Lunarlon foam which keeps your feet cushioned in support so you can play for hours on end. These colours also shine through on the tongue and insole, with a cool touch coming on the tongue where you have a space to write your name and number.

    The swoosh is made up of symbols that pay homage to all of the great Joga Bonito ads of the past and the style of play we associate with the term.  

    The upper also combines nubuck on the forefoot and mesh quarter panels for breathability – and you’ll need it because of how much time you’ll spend in these instant classics.
