Nov 19, 2013 | Gabe Oshin |



And just like that, Calvin Johnson‘s gridiron nickname is applied to his signature cleat. With the help of Hasbro, the Nike CJ81 Elite TD is given a suitable color switch-up for the silhouette’s all-new “Megatron” colorway. Providing the shoe with an authentic armored look, matte and metallic purple is draped over the upper, with red accents serving as the predominant color’s second-in-command. To serve as a reminder for wearer’s of the shoe, in addition to Johnson himself, “Show No Mercy” is inscribed under the cross-foot strap. Incomplete without a special added touch, a Decepticon logo is embossed on the heel counter. One part of a three-kick “Megatron Rises” collection, the Nike CJ81 Trainer Max “Megatron” and the Nike Air Trainer SC II “Megatron” will be released alongside the on-field sneaker in 81 packs that will release exclusively at 21 Mercer in NYC, select Nike Yardline doors, and Stay tuned for any and all release info regarding this exclusive collection.
