If you know me (or follow me on Instagram), then you know my desk here at Urban Industry is littered with toys and action figures of all kinds. GI Joe, old WWF toys and Star Wars figures all clutter my workspace much to the distraction of everybody who sits near me. As you can imagine, I’m a little bit more excited than normal for this Nike x Transformers ‘Megatron Rises’ pack that is inbound at Urban Industry. The 3 shoe pack from Nike Football and Hasbro honours Calvin Johnson, Jr., the Detroit Lions star and one of the NFL’s most popular characters.
Calvin Johnson, Jr. has redefined the wide-receiver position and become an un-guardable force with a powerful nickname – Megatron. Like the fictional Transformers Decepticon leader, Johnson taps into his superhuman-like skills to push the limits of his position, and the game, in a relentless quest for dominance.
The Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II that we will be stocking draws more muted inspiration from the Transformers character. A tonal, reflective circuitry board pattern is featured on the medial and lateral quarter panels, and like the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, the Decepticon logo appears welded at the heel. Premium Nubuck is used at the overlays, and a glow-in-the-dark outrigger punctuates the sole tooling. The final Transformers inspired flourish is a removable strap across the upper.
The Megatron Nike Air Trainer SC II drops at Urban Industry on Friday 6th December at 10:00 GMT. Retail is £99.95
