Nike CJ81 Collection Inspired by Megatron – Calvin Johnson Meets Transformers

The Nike CJ81 Collection Inspired by Megatron speaks to WR Calvin Johnson’s rare combination of physical talent and mental toughness. This menacing combination creates a prototypical specimen that undoubtedly deserves a moniker like Megatron. Much like the fictional character, Johnson relies on his uncanny ability to pull out an arsenal of physical strengths or “weapons” based on anything he encounters on the field.

The collection, inspired by the Hasbro Transformers character created in 1984, features iconic Nike silhouettes across lifestyle, training and performance including the CJ81 Nike Air Max Flyposite, CJ81 Nike Huarache Free Shield, CJ81 Nike Vapor Jet Glove 2.0, CJ81 Nike Vapor Football Sock, CJ81 Nike True Adjustable Hat, and the CJ81 Nike KO Hoody.

Merging the old and new, the traditional Transformers grid pattern and colors of black, silver, purple and blue from the original Megatron packaging, help highlight the CJ81 logo design.

The limited collection will be available starting November 23 at several Nike retail locations as well as Nike Yardline at Champs Sports and Eastbay online.

ART WORK-Nike Sneaker Illustrations by Jack Stocker

Jack Stocker is an illustrator with an interesting take on sneakers. Created as part of his final project for college, this set of six illustrations is a unique interpretation of Nike footwear and more specifically the Nike Air range.

Clean and minimal, the illustrations strip away the detail within the shoes, forcing the viewer to focus on the basic parts of the silhouette and the iconic colors that create it. Jack selected the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 180, Air Huarache LE, Air Flow and Air Max Light for this project.

Nike Produces The Nike NSW Lebron X Cork Edition to Honor The Champ

iLike…i just dont know if i could do it.. hmmm cork shoes.. what ya’ll think?????

Nike celebrates LeBron James and his championship title with a special cork version of the LeBron X sneaker, hinting at the cork of a champagne bottle.

“Popping champagne bottles on June 21 following his first championship was a tribute to an unprecedented year for LeBron James. Three-time league MVP, Finals MVP – these individual awards pale in comparison to the honor James and his teammates accomplished.

World Champs. A distinction that stands the test of time like a fine champagne, and inspiration for a genuine cork version of James’ tenth signature shoe. Inspired by the LEBRON X performance shoe, Nike Sportswear brings a sophisticated edge to the shoe with premium materials and fabrication intended for off-court use.”

This Nike LeBron X NSW cork edition marks the first of multiple Nike Sportswear versions of Nike signature basketball shoes, all remixed with premium materials for non-performance use.

The Nike Sportswear LeBron X cork shoe launches globally in December in limited quantities.

Nike Foamposite One “Galaxy”

Qickly developing as a go-to theme for Nike’s Spring/Summer 2012 footwear offerings, the “Galaxy” play sees its latest role on a Nike Foamposite One. No stranger to bold color iterations and metallic overtones, the latest Foamposite One mockup sees a starry pattern across the majority of its upper, with customary black laces, interior mesh boot and tongue setting an understated appeal. A slightly transparent outsole resides well with a hit of black carbon fiber plating seen on the midsole. With no official retail set, a release is slated for February 23 through select Nike stockists as well as online.
