“The Game Plan” by Champs Sports: The Year in Review
It’s year end time, which means every outlet out there is readying their “Best of” lists. We’re doing the same with respect to Champs Sports’ The Game Plan program, which has introduced no small number of killer collections of sneakers and gear since the year began. Stay with us after the break for a recap of our favorite Game Plans that Champs has put together and stay tuned to see what else is in store from them.
1. Oregon Ducks 9/8
Eugene’s favorite team got blessed with even more than the standard sneaker treatment. On top of the Diamond Turf joints you could grab jerseys, hoodies, and more show show your love for the “O”.
2. Nike Zoom Soldier VII 8/9
One of LeBron’s take down models finally got some shine. Tough to track down LeBron Soldier VII colorways were introduced along with plenty of King James gear.
3.Jordan Bel Air 10/21
“Bel Air” Jordan 5s were no doubt one of the most coveted Jordans of the year. But let’s keep in mind that there was a lot more than just the AJV rocking with that pastel printed look.
4. Bigger Than The Game 10/8
Sneakers with a cause. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Game Plan showed you some pretty in pink offerings from the Swoosh catalog.
5. Jordan Grapes 4/8
An OG returns. The “Grape” colorway was huge in the 1990s and still hits hard today. Just before summer arrived we got the retros and the apparel to match.
6. Nike Megatron Collection 11/22
A super limited Nike release? Check. An exclusive Calvin Johnson style Transformer toy? Check. The Game Plan came through on this one.
7. adidas Originals adiColor Royal-Green Collection 7/8
Be Original with this group of colorful clothes and sneakers like the adidas Originals Court Additude and the adidas Originals Hardcourt II.
8. Live Every Day Like It’s NFL Game Day 9/20
As soon as the NFL starts back up you know you need that gear to show your team spirit. 2013 was no different and Champs held you down via some turfed out retros from Nike and plenty of jerseys to go with them.
9. NSW Safari Pack 9/6
Griffey meets Tinker via the Nike Air Griffey Max “Safari” (Don’t miss the 3M flash on those). The throwback treatment continued on some bold graphic tees wearing the Safari palette.
10. Jordan Fire Red Volt Collection 8/22
Have you ever seen Jordans like this? Fiery red tones meet up with the immediately recognizable Volt shade for a Game Plan meant for the Summer.
