    First of all I don't know if this is in the right thread....

    These are official Nike Decepticons Lunar TR1....no word if they will be release to the masses....some think they're custom shoes for Calvin "Megatron" Johnson, Wide Receiver for the Detroit Lions

    Source?

    Don't know how official these are as there is a lot of differences between the actual con symbol and this.

    Yeah, they do look kinda knock-offy. The article does suggest they're not coming to retail though. Maybe they're a prototype and the symbol is purposely wrong and just to give a feel of what the final overall trainer would be like.
    Frankly, if they're not going to have the proper Decepticon symbol on they'd be worthless to me and are just trainers with a random purple splotch on. And even if they did have the proper symbol it's not really enough for me to feel like a proper TF product with one logo shoved on the rear and one on the tongue. At least make the trims (or whatever they're called) and laces purple too. And make the treads on the sole Decepticon logos as well. Then that would be a worthy TF-based trainer to me.

    shoes have collectors too, never really knew until a few years ago, my ex was a "sneakerfreak". They have magazines and everything. I kinda got into Nikes, picked up some of the TF and GI Joe inspired pairs. They look cool and feel great on my feets!

    Yep yep yep sorry everyone, let me clarify, I meant offense to anyone with my LOL about sneakernews.com! In all honesty it made me laugh for some reason because I had never heard of it! But I didn't mean to make fun of anyone who collects shoes.... With hundreds of Transformers and other toys, especially :lol  That just wouldn't be right!
