Nike today a limited edition set of three performance basketball shoes commemorating the worldwide premiere of the Transformers film sequel. The collaboration includes the Nike Zoom Flight Club, Nike Zoom FP and Nike Sharkalaid complete with special packaging, retro graphics and vibrant color combinations.
Nike worked closely with Hasbro on this special project. The Transformers franchise, spanning a range of media over the past 25 years, is based on transforming robots representing good and evil. No detail went unnoticed when Nike began the design process. The shoe packaging mimics the nostalgic toy boxes complete with original Hasbro graphics, J-hooks for hanging display and decoder profiles on the back of the boxes that highlight each robot’s powers.
Transformers fans around the globe are abuzz over the sequel full-length film that debuted internationally last week and the momentum continues. Each of the three Nike designs can be purchased individually and include special colorways honoring the Transformers characters Megatron (Nike Zoom Flight Club), Soundwave (Nike Sharkalaid) and Bumblebee (Nike Zoom FP).

Be on the lookout for these babies on H&T in the near future. With a patent leather swoosh and enough yellow to make traffic yield, these are sure to turn some heads.
More pics coming soon

Just caught these over at Highsnobiety. Got a wolverine edition of the Big Nike Air (a rare shoe all of its own) and an air max 95 designed after his arch nemesis Sabretooth. Not quite sure where and when these will drop but stay tuned because when I know, you will know!!!!!!

Anyone who’s watched Mythbusters enough knows the damage a shotgun can cause. But imagine combining that firepower with the ‘benefits’ of a machine gun. What you’d end up with is the Atchisson Assault Shotgun, or the AA-12 for short, which is capable of firing up to 5 12-gauge shotgun shells per second. The gun was originally designed by Maxwell Atchisson way back in 1972, but in 1987 he sold the rights to a company called Military Police Systems who spent 18 years improving and perfecting the original design.
Not only can the AA-12 cause serious amounts of damage in a small amount of time, but thanks to a proprietary gas system there’s little to no recoil, which means the weapon can actually be fired with one hand if you’ve got the muscle. It’s also made from aerospace-grade stainless steel which means there’s minimal cleaning and it actually self-lubricates with the carbon produced by a shell firing. Future Weapons had a chance to try out the AA-12, and you’ll find a clip from that episode after the jump.

Just saw these over at Highsnobiety. I don’t own too many articles of clothing that would actually coordinate with these but i do, however, know some 2,000 or so Fraternity Brothers down in Clemson, SC that have button up’s that would go very nicely. Set to be released in a few months from Nike Sportswear.
