They nicknamed Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions “Megaton” for his cyborg-like athletic abilities. For Darrelle Revis, it is the “Revis Island” for his methodology to isolate and neutralize his opponent, much like being stranded on an island. Coming off from a torn ACL injury earlier in the season, the New York Jets‘ cornerback approaches his rehabilitation regiment much like how he would train normally, with the same intensity. To facilitate a good design where it will addresses every needs of the athletes, Nike worked with Revis through every step of the process. The result is Darrelle Revis’ new signature model, the Nike Zoom Revis
Right from the get go, Ken Link, Nike Football Footwear Designer Director, said “We’ve worked with Darrelle Revis for over a year to be able to deliver new insights around all aspects of his training. This shoe allows athletes to train for speed on different surfaces, in different ways and in different environments leading up to game day.” Similar to bridges across New York City, the Nike Zoom Revis helps player “connect” with various playing surfaces, not matter the conditions. Formed like steel rivets on a bridge and highlighted by Volt accents, inspired by bright NYC Street lights, the sole’s tread pattern allows instant “traction on demand”. 24 Nike Flywire designs, Revis’ jersey number, gives Zoom Revis adaptable support, which is strength tenfold by a dynamic midfoot strap. A few personal touches, such as Revis’ favorite quote, “The only way to handle pressure is to apply it.” on the midfoot strap’s inside, and the word “Family”, help to complete the package as a whole.
All-weather, multi-surface, indoor, outdoor, pre-game day, or on the sideline, the Nike Zoom Revis exceeds all. Coming to a Nike retailer near you soon.
