Standard Issue Nikes

Nike, a brand that has led the way in innovation in design and use of new materials and technology, has recently caught the attention of the US Military.

A collaboration between Nike and the US Military, with Nike supplying boots designed specifically for the Special Forces. The boots are super lightweight and have the Nike Free sole and extra-long laces to serve as makeshift tourniquets.

According to PSFK, "if there’s one person who can truly personify the Just Do It! slogan of Nike, it’s a Special Forces agent."

We probably won't be able to pick up a pair of these at the local X Trainer unfortunately, so enlisting with the Special Forces might be the only way for all you sneaker heads to get your hands on these Nikes.
