Nike dropping its partnership with Lance Armstrong set off a chain reaction whereby all but one of the (soon to be former) seven-time Tour de France champion’s top sponsors gave him the axe on Wednesday.  Nike’s marketing prowess is unmatched, so when the Swoosh commits to LIVESTRONG and Lance’s namesake Foundation, we’re reminded that the fight against cancer is more important than all the bicycles in Europe.  So as of this writing, Nike still plans to move forward with the 2013 LIVESTRONG collection, which boasts eight different footwear options including five of next year’s big new debuts.  Joining the flagship LIVESTRONG x Nike Air Max+ 2013 will be the Air Max 95 Dynamic Flywire, LunarFly+ 4, LunarFlash+ and Zoom Vomero+ 9, joined by new styles for the Free 5.0+, Free Trainer 3.0 and 5.0.  Click through for a look at each pair that includes our first ever viewing of the LunarFly 4, LunarFlash and Zoom Vomero 8 and stick with Sneaker News for all the happenings between now and these pairs’ Q2 drops.

Lance Armstrong Dropped by Nike

lance armstrong dropped by nike Lance Armstrong Dropped by Nike

As of today Nike has elected to terminate their partnership with Lance Armstrong, the Tour De France dominating cyclist who had been a part of the Nike family for over a decade. The move comes as a reaction to the ongoing doping controversy surrounding Armstrong, with the US Anti-Doping Agency just last week releasing a particularly damning report that included allegations of foul play and testimony from 11 former teammates. Nike has reported that they will continue to support the initiatives of the Livestrong Foundation (where Lance Armstrong recently stepped down from his position as chairman), so there may still be sneakers to come under that charitable collection. Let us know what you think of the allegations and Nike’s subsequent handling of the issues in the comments below and stick with Sneaker News for more on the Lance Armstrong controversy.

In 1996, Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with cancer. A few years later, he embarked on a legendary run of seven-straight Tour de France titles. In what might be the greatest personal come-back in the history of sports life, Lance Armstrong’s Tour de France domination served as an inspirational tool to the millions suffering from cancer, but Armstrong had ‘support’ in his mind earlier, as he started the Lance Armstrong Foundation on January 8th, 1997. Nike has been a long-time supporter of the foundation and has committed itself to Lance as an athlete and an advocate, and today, they celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the Lance Armstrong foundation by releasing a limited edition set of apparel. the Nike Air Max 2012, Nike Trainer 1.3 Mid (not picture), Nike WMNS LunarFly+ 3, and Nike WMNS Free TR Fit 2 are featured as the highlight footwear pieces of this great collection, which should go on sale very soon. Continue reading for a look at the footwear as well as a list of fifteen ways to ‘LIVESTRONG’.
