Designer, Fausto Fantinuoli Helps Nike Celebrate Brazil and the New Football FC247 Collection

We take a look at the Nike FC247 Collection inspired by the idea of blending street footwear with performance sportswear. The collection provides footwear for all surface types and ball handling. Providing the balance between speed, control, comfort and precision for different court surfaces, three pairs of shoes make up the collection – Bomba Finale II, Elastico Finale II and Luna Gato II. Consider your needs and surface for play when selecting.

To celebrate the launch and Brasil hosting the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016, Nike commissioned art director, to re-imagine the Nike footwear from the collection through his artistic work. “Fausto was inspired by the landscapes of Brazil, utilizing parts of each shoe to create beautiful landscapes.”
