The design is simple with a black leather upper and white Nike swoosh. The graphic in reference to the Mexico 1970 World Cup is still present on the tongue and the insole.

The soleplate is a classic 13 conical studs which was the standard for pretty much all football cleats at the time.

Originally, the Nike 1971 was an extremely poor design. It was available for $16.95 when released and could not withstand wet and cold weather. Things got so bad that Nike had to withdraw the products.
