Inspired by the modified, small-sided variant of football, Nike introduces the Nike5 Gato Street – a shoe for small-footballers who value style and function as much as the versatile nuances of the sport. Small-sided football is seen everywhere where football is king, and Nike focuses on four cities where the sport has gone beyond men playing a game with a round ball to a way of life that permeates more than daily routine. The Nike5 Gato Street is designed for the footballer who plays the moment he leaves the office or finds a small opening in a street. In Tokyo, London, Rio de Janeiro, and Barcelona, the sport has taken many forms and the Nike5 Gato Street is built specifically for the small-sided version of the game.

The Nike5 Gato Street combines street wearability with the performance aspect of a sport-specific shoe; the upper design combines suede with unique embossed graphics and appliques with an XDR rubber outsole with a pyramidal traction surface. The Gato Street also uses classic football shoe design cues, like the stitch formations on the toe and low-profile cut, and vamps it up with the unique medial arc design that mimics a cluster of jagged yet precious stones. The Nike5 Gato Street will released worldwide on April 1st so continue reading for a look at all the upcoming colorways and let us know what you think.
