The last Nike Lunar TR1 we saw released early this year in conjunction with the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Here’s an unreleased edition for a player who hopes he can make it to the next big game at MetLife Stadium. Marshawn Lynch is right at home in cold weather roofless stadiums, as he’s proven with more than a few superhuman performances at the Seattle Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field. This ‘Beast Mode’ Lunar TR1 captures Lynch’s indomitable spirit and ever churning legs with a makeup that while not as colorful as a ‘Skittles’ colorway, is still eye-catching in its own right in Wolf Grey with neon green and navy accents. Check out more images below and find this rare promo sample available for a short time from dballaholic on eBay.

The Nike Vapor Talon Elite Fuse was introduced during the Nike Football Innovation Summit in late November, setting the tone for Nike Football’s take-over of NFL outfitting beginning with the 2012 season. However, the Vapor Talon Elite Fuse is not only already in action on the NFL grid-iron right now, there are some Player Exclusive colorways in the mix. Marshawn Lynch, who sports quite a number of nicknames on the field, was spotted wearing the Nike Vapor Talon Elite Fuse ‘Skittles’ PE during this weekend’s game; Lynch has been known to munch on Skittles candies during games, a quirky habit that dates back to his High School playing days when his mother used to give him a fresh bag before games. When cameras caught him snacking on the food during a game on December 1st, Mars (who manufactures/distributes the fruity candy) offered him a two-year supply as well as a candy dispenser for his locker room. He can now go ‘beast mode’ on his favorite treats whenever he wants – all while wearing one of the funkiest PEs we’ve ever seen. Check out more of Marshawn in action below and let us know what you think. via Yahoo!.
