Nike unleashes a collection of training shoes inspired by the instincts that animals are forced to rely on in the wild. Their signature traits help them find food, escape predators and adapt to their ever-changing environments.
Relying on brute strength to overpower his opponent and stifle the momentum of an ongoing drive, the line back trains as the anaconda in the Fingertrap Max NRG. Like the leopard, a cornerback uses his speed to track down any opponent, quickly and proficiently in the Zoom Speed Trainer NRG. Lastly, a safety uses vision, speed and smarts to move throughout the field with the finesse of a zebra in the Free Trainer 5.0.
The Kingdom Collection Fingertrap Max ($135), Zoom Speed Trainer ($100) and Free Trainer 5.0 ($110) will all be available at Eastbay on Wednesday, June 4 at 8:00 a.m. EST / 7:00 a.m. CST. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.
