In a true “More Than Meets The Eye” fashion, Nike unveiled the upcoming Calvin Johnson CJ81 Collection in its full form. While much of the buzz have been about the collection’s CJ81 Air Max Flyposite, Nike divulged a complete product line with focus in lifestyle, training and performance. In addition to the Air Max Flyposite, the collection also includes the CJ81 Nike Huarache Free Shield, the CJ81 Nike Vapor Jet Glove 2.0, the CJ81 Nike Vapor Football Sock, the CJ81 Nike True Adjustable Hat, and the CJ81 Nike KO Hoody.
Inspired by Calvin Johnson‘s nickname, one derived from Detroit Lions wide receiver’s robot-like physique, reflex, and talent… all not unlike the ruthless leader of the villainous Decepticons, Megatron. Designers from Nike Football and Nike Sportswear then created the collection with design cues from Hasbro‘s Transformers franchise, most notably a Decepticon-like emblem with hints of a football helmet and “CJ81” logo.
Release Date: November 23rd, 2012 (Black Friday!)
