Last weekend, the Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen battled it out on the gridiron to continue a tradition that’s gone on for over 80 years. The Black Knights won the battle for the 10th consecutive season, taking out the midshipmen 27-21. Celebrating the long-standing rivalry, Nike brought to life the Army & Navy Rivalry Collection which included everything from Destroyer Jackets to these two colorways of the Rivalry Free Trainer 1.3 Nike training shoes.
Both colorways represent the US’s Armed Forces proudly, with the Army pair possessing a desert-like khaki tonal colorway. The U.S Navy is represented with a light grey and navy blue digi-camo build, featuring the Bravo, Mike and Yankee flags on the back heel.
Both the Army & Navy Nike Rivalry Free Trainer 1.3 are available from Eastbay in limited quantities.
