Nike FootballX 'Heritage Pack' | Inspired by iconic Air Max sneakers


Written by Mathias Boughey-Svendsen

Nike pride themselves on being first movers, but they never let their focus on the future make them lose track of their past. Introducing the Nike FootballX ‘Heritage Pack’.

Drawing inspiration from iconic colourway combinations of the Nike Air Max sneaker, Nike have unveiled their newest range of football shoes for the small-sided game. The sharpest sneakerheads may have already identified the colourways, but in case you’re wondering, the MercurialX is inspired by Nike Air Max 90 Infrared, MagistaX takes from the Air Max 180 OG, HypervenomX is based on the Air Max 95 Dark Grey/Volt and finally the Tiempo honours the “Varsity Blue” Air Max 1.

The Nike Heritage Pack is another leap towards fusing the world of football with streetwear, which is something Nike have been championing since the launch of their FootballX collection.

If you go to any street pitch in the Unisport hometown Copenhagen, you’re almost guaranteed to see someone donning the line of streetwise football shoes. The shoes, which feature the same technologies as the best FG football boots at Nike’s disposal, have truly swept the land and with “throwback” colourways like this, they show no sign of stopping.

The Nike ‘Heritage Pack’ is available right now on Find the Limited Edition FootballX shoes here.
