Nike are dropping a limited-edition run of their iconic Nike Geo Merlin football – the first-ever ball used in the Premier League when it made its debut 20 years ago.
Described as “the roundest, fastest, most accurate ball ever” at the time, 992 goals have been scored using the Nike Geo Merlin since it was launched during the 2000/01 season. The ball evokes memories of Thierry Henry and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in their peak and bagging back in that season, with the remade model a a like-for-like remake of the OG.
Featuring Dynamic Support Structure to keep the ball in shape when struck, the ball also uses high-solid polyurethane and polyethelene foam to provide responsiveness and vulcanized latex rubber to create a ‘trampoline’ effect returning impact energy when the ball is struck.
Only 600 units of this limited-edition Geo Merlin will be released globally for £155. Cop one from Nike now.
