Optimus Prime approves of these shoes, and apparently so does NIKE.

The long awaited REAL, WEARABLE NIKE shoes influenced by Transformer's characters' colors are making their debut at 'Goliath's' in NYC.

You can check out this release at Freshnessmag.com and the original information can be found here.


Time for you Transformer NIKE fans to pony up again, and grab a fresh pair of kicks to take on the court this weekend. Hopefully this means they will be released elsewhere too!

Um... Wow? Wonder how much they are, but to say... that's a little over the top.

Those are KIDS shoes, right? 'Cuz no adult in their right mind is going to buy shoes that color. And if they're going to make them so horrendously gaudy, they could at least throw an Autobot/Decepticon symbol on there to boot. (Ha! That's a pun! Get it! Man, I KILL me!) XP

If I was actually going to get a pair...it would be the one in the middle, not so weird in color. Plus it is all Con.

I was hoping this would be about these toys being imported.

Hopefuly, with enough suport and pushing from Nike, Hasbro will maybe do something smart.

After all didn't they say that till TF2, things seem alittle bleak?

Well, here's some product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ugh. Typical urban ghetto black style. There isnt even a freakin transformers logo on the damn things anywhere. Hip hop seems to be ruining everything. Including Autobot Jazz.

If you have a flip-top phone, you already have a transforming phone. Just uh...draw a little face on there somewhere. :P

As someone who hardly deigns to pay $40 for a servicable pair of sneakers, I somehow doubt I'll ever be sporting a pair of these. The pic did get a good giggle out of me, though.

I'll admit the shoes aren't visually appealing, but "Typical urban ghetto black style"? Wow...just wow. Hip-hop didn't F up Jazz, casting directors casting Eddie Winslow from "Family Matters" did. At any rate...yikes...Hasbro and Nike should've quit with the Shoe-Formers. Good thing is if you wear these in the 'hood, you don't have to worry about those "Urban Ghetto blacks" stealing them from you.;)
