…It’s Movie Monday: Debacle?

Debacle

Debacle is a new video from Nike Skateboarding that’s breaking all the rules with the ability to download an HD copy of the video for free from Nike.com

Debacle was also done in partnership with Adobe, so you can check out a Behind The Scenes video to see what went into making the film:

…Nike and Transformers are teaming up again?

Nike Transformers

It’s not often that shoe fanatics and Transformers fanboys collide (except for the shoes that came out after the first Transformers movie) but when custom kicks like these are on the line, I would be surprised to see riots breaking out in the streets.

The line of shoes, which draw heavy (and officially licensed) inspiration from Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, include customized versions of the Zoom Sharkalaid, Zoom FP and Zoom Flight Club, with Bumblebee, Soundwave and Megatron all represented.

If you want a pair, you better start looking around though, because you can’t just expect to walk into your local Foot Locker and pick a pair off the shelf.

Onwards

Onwards is a beautiful adver-movie that James Jarvis made for Nike, in which a yellow man runs through an ever-changing environment that’s filled with all types of scenery and adventure.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Nike Ill-Mobile?

Nike Ill-Mobile

If you want to go anywhere and do anything, then you need a…Nike Ill-Mobile?

The as yet nameless machine is “a souped-up, tricked out, action sports shred-mobile: part amphib, part 1970’s camper, and 100% rock and roll”.

The 8-wheeled ill-mobile can cross deserts, climb mountains, and search out any secret spot on the planet. Once there, it deploys rack mounted bikes, surfboards, wakeboards, and skateboards for any session that you can throw at it.

Can’t find a place to board?

No problem.

Grind rails line the sides, and a quarter pipe folds down from the rear for an impromptu session.

Need to chill for a bit?

Got you covered there too. The ill-mobile has an on deck bbq, a deluxe camper shell, a basement couch front seat, and a stereo to piss the neighbors off with if you ever have any.

Ride on.

…Nike’s Mercurial Vapor SLs are amazing?

Nike Mercurial Vapor SL

Though I couldn’t find much in the way of official information, it doesn’t take a press release to know that these shoes are special.

Called the Nike Mercurial Vapor SL, they are made of nearly 100% carbon fiber, and weigh just 6.7 ounces.

It took Nike three years to design and produce the shoe, and features include an outsole plate made from seven layers of carbon composite material interwoven with TPU and polyurethane, a molded carbon fiber upper, and an internal carbon fiber chassis for “instant acceleration”.

Plus, if Cristiano Ronaldo approves them, then who are you to say otherwise?
