Moving on to the highlight of the event – meeting the Nike athletes, which included Fran Kirby, Frida Maanum, Shanice van de Sanden and many other. We had the opportunities to ask the athletes questions about the new Nike Victory Pack, which also got showcased during the event and is the pack that will be used during the World Cup. We also asked the athletes about the expectations to the World Cup and why they rock the Nike boots, which gave a lot of interesting answers.
Frida Maanum had some interesting replies on the design of the Norway Away Shirt, as she just loved the design which faded in-between the well-known Norway colour – red, blue and white, while the rest of the design took inspiration from the Norwegian country. Frida also liked the new Victory Pack boot, as they came with a cool colourway and awesome details with the ‘Goddess of Victory’ text on the tags. Lastly she was also excited about the World Cup, and looked forward to represent Norway and just having a lot of fun and fighting to win the gold.
To end the event we also had the opportunity to see all the Nike World Cup shirt on close hand, while the senior apparel product manager for global football, Cassie Looker, took us through all the shirts and the design and inspiration behind them. There was some great storytelling behind each shirt and you can really see that Nike has taken it a notch up to win the 2019 World Cup in France.
In general we only have high fives to Nike as this awesome event blew the roof off Palais Brongniart, which was the main stage for the Nike World Cup shirt event. We can’t wait to see the Nike Victory Pack, new Nike World Cup Shirts or in general the World Cup to kickoff in June, as this is going to be the highlight of the summer.
