This summer Nike is celebrating athletic commitment, dedication and achievement at the highest level through the ‘Greatness’ campaign.
Every athlete is shaped by their own unique experiences and to celebrate this Nike has taken its iconic NIKE M65 jacket and custom crafted a unique edition for eight British athletes it partners with, including one for our very own Luol Deng.
Each M65 jacket is embellished with personal mantras distinct to each athlete so that it becomes a symbol of inspiration. Each chosen British athlete was presented with their bespoke M65 jacket in a custom built wooden presentation box that features a laser etched Union Jack.
Basketball legend Scottie Pippen surprised Luol Deng with his customised jacket at the World Basketball Festival in Brixton a couple of weeks back.
Printed in patriotic red on the inside placket, each mantra embodies the spirit of athletic commitment and success. Luol Deng’s is “I’ll return to deliver”.
In addition to the personal mantras on each jacket, a bonded woven Union Jack is stitched on the left arm, while each athlete’s name is embroidered on a Velcro name plate.
