For Holiday 2014, Nike F.C. turns its focus toward Berlin, Germany â€” a breeding ground of young football stars who have taken their skills from the streets to glory at the worldâ€™s most celebrated tournament.
Here, Nike F.C. members Kevin-Prince Boateng, a notoriously combative midfielder, and his brother JÃ©rÃ´me, a rock-solid defender who recently wrote his name in the history books in Brasil, honed their skills on Berlinâ€™s unforgiving battlegrounds.
The brothers say the experience gave them an edge that training on grass never could. Learning to play on Berlinâ€™s harsh concrete pitches has pushed progress in German football, influencing every player with a will to win as solid as the surfaces they grew up playing on.
A new addition, theÂ Nike F.C. Scarf, pays homage to the football supporterâ€™s essential accessory while theÂ Nike F.C. AW77 Crewâ€™sÂ bold stripe signifies the audacious German playing style.
Emblazoned with a series of stars, theÂ Nike F.C. AW77Â HoodieÂ andÂ Nike F.C. Stars TopÂ celebrate the climax of Europeâ€™s premier club competition taking place in Berlin in 2015.
