    Those are pretty cool. I know there are a few sneakerheads around here, I'm sure they'll wanna snap these up.

    Those aren't as cool as the Voltron Reebok pumps.

    I think the 'NIKE' on the tongue is in the font of the old G1 Transformers logo. Much better than the huge Autobot symbol that was on the previous test shot we saw.

    The Starscream one is the only decent one imo, and I still wouldn't wear it. Sorry for all the sneaker fans, but those are fugly. Better luck next time Nike. Oh, and since when does Prime have purple. Thats a 'con color.

    They don't have anything that defines them as "Transformer" shoes. Not buying.

    WACKNESS.

    They should have done illustrations on the shoes like Adidas did w/ the Stan Smiths and Superstars a la Rebellion Customs.

    sneaker collectors arent that much different than toy collectors. some of them buy just to display honestly. were talking abt ppl who own couple'a hundred pairs here.

    think of it as the guy who buys an exclusive only to keep it MISB. its like that.

    i think the colours are horrendous too, but the fact nikes on the bandwagon is true recognition, coming from a top 5 world brand.

    Funky shoes, not sure if I like them or not, but I never get to wear sneakers so it matters not, but they really would be better with some faction symbols.

    im happy that theres some transformers sneakers out there but they look like every other dunk or air force one thats been coming out. no autobot or deception factions on them? another attempt to get a quick buck off of the transformer faithful. remember nike we want quality not quantity. all the sneaker heads will love them wait in line for hours and wear then one time....................whatever.

    So true.
    Those Voltron Reeboks are awesome. And I'm not even into colorful sneakers.

    These NIKE just seem almost colorfully clownish without any TF symbols.
    Nothing screams Transformer exclusive about them. Maybe at least incorporate some alternate mode characteristics into the design like they do on the 3" TITANIUM figure packages. A bit of a grill here, a headlight there, a wing or cannon intricated into the fabric or on the sole design at the bottom so when you walk you little Decepticon symbols in the dirt or something.

    These just look like colorful repaints with little effort put into the TF license.
    Not impressed.

    The Optimus Prime Air Trainers are mine! The Galvatron Hurraches, I dunno, if I can find some shirts, maybe. But those Optimus Primes: consider them COPPED!
