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).

Although footlocker is the last place i would go to buy kicks (aside from running shoes and Jordans) this commercial is still pretty damn hilarious. Im not going to lie either, i know some kids that would have KO’d the chick without even thinking. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!

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

Ever since the first time i saw Dazed and Confused, i’ve dreamed about growing up during that time period in the US. You could drink at the age of 18, you wouldn’t end up with a criminal record because of a few thrown punches, and Money wasn’t as much a life line as it seems to be nowadays. We here at H&T understand how tough the money situation is which is why we are hitting you with another sale. Use the code shown above to get 25% off any purchase of $100 or more. We also have fresh SB’s still in stock including the Stefan Janoski pro model and the Ice Green Mid’s.

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!!!!!!

Just came across the May lineup for SB’s. Some pretty decent colorways. I don’t personally like the new P-Rod model but the white and blue with elephant print is reminiscent of the original Supreme SB Dunk lows which makes them a keeper in my book. Be on the lookout in the near future for some of these on H & T. Enjoy!!!!
