The Nike Free Trainer 5.0 “Oregon State” will release on November 22nd, 2013. The sneakers will be arriving a little over a week before the always enjoyable Civil War game between Oregon State and UO’s much celebrated squad. As you’ve no doubt noticed, the Ducks end up much more spoiled when it comes to footwear sporting their symbols, so it’s good to see that Corvallis is getting a nod on this one. See the shoe with us after the break and give us a heads up if you’ll be purchasing a pair ahead of next week’s match.

A couple of weeks after an Oregon PE released on the Nike Free Trainer 5.0, we see the Ducks’ rival school get their own special makeup of the same superb shoe. The Oregon State Free Trainer 5.0 PE is done in the Beavers’ orange and black and includes OSU in lieu of tongue branding, the Beaver logo at the heel and again on the insole, which looks to have a plaid base. School color schemes are a perfect fit for the Chinese finger trap-inspired Free Trainer 5.0, so stick with Sneaker News to see if more pop up and let us know where these rank in the growing canon of Oregon State exclusives.

Of all the schools Jordan Brand could choose to outfit with its latest round of player exclusives . . . did Phil Knight and Tinker Hatfield really sign off on this?! 2011′s onslaught of Oregon Ducks SMUs started around the time of their BCS Championship Game tilt against Auburn back in January when the UO footballers showed up to media day rocking a blacked-out Air Jordan IX PE. And while a pair with orange and black accents seems suitable with Halloween right around the corner, 117 years of ‘The Civil War’ makes this Oregon State edition the unlikeliest of AJ9s. There’s an interesting symmetry at play here given OSU’s two recent College World Series crowns and the Nine’s status as the ‘lost’ Air Jordan because of MJ’s Birmingham Baron days. And though it’s unlikely the Beavers will become the Lou Gehrig to Oregon’s Wally Pipp, this is a dope colorup all the same and has us curious about what could be brewing up in the Pacific Northwest. Click through to see more, let us know how these compare to the Oregon Air Jordan IXs and stick with Sneaker News for more NCAA basketball sneakers. via MN
