Here’s some useless trivia to impress your mates with during the World Cup: in Portuguese, “rebento” means “to shoot”. Clearly then, Nike’s new Rebento Duffel is an indication of the brand’s aim to outdo rivals (and official World Cup sponsors) Adidas on the accessory front this summer.
While we’ve already seen Nike’s innovative Magista and Mercurial boots, the brand’s next step towards football domination is the exclusive Rebento Duffel bag.
Boasting the world’s first-ever 3D printed base and Nike's Flyknit technology, the Rebento is guaranteed to be both innovative and flexible enough to store mountains of your muddy football shirts.
Asthetically, the Rebento looks every bit the part, with each bag featuring a unique graphic on its base, representing the stud plates of Nike's World Cup boot releases. The personalised gold detailing doesn't look too bad either.
Sadly, unless your name is Rooney, Ronaldo or Neymar Jr, it's unlikely you'll be able to get your hands on one of the three Rebentos in existence any time soon. However, the fact that the bags have been assigned to assist a trio of the world’s best footballers this summer in Brazil, does suggest demand for a commercial run will be extremely high come next season.
If you can’t wait until then, and happen to have a 3D printer to hand, why not see if you can knock one up yourself, after all, how hard can it be?
