Nike pays tribute to NFL superstar Calvin Johnson with the incredible Megatron CJ81 Collection, hitting stores beginning on November 23rd. The nickname of ‘Megatron’, the iconic Hasbro Transformers hero of 1984, came from Johnson’s massive stature and his ability to combine his unparalled physical talent with his mental toughness, which Nike impeccably transferred onto a series of footwear, apparel, and on-field gear by way of this intense blue/purple colorway. Included in the set is the previously previewed Nike Air Max Flyposite NRG and the Nike Huarache Free Shield, which features a tonal grey grid-patterned upper, the Vapor Jet Glove 2.0, Vapor Football Sock, True Adjustable Hat, and KO Hoody. A gallery of the entire Calvin Johnson x Nike “Megatron CJ81” Collection is available for viewing just below.
