Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis’ early season injury could turn into a cosmic blessing. Before being sidelined, he and Nike were set to introduce his new signature model, the Zoom Revis. Now, the defensive standout’s need to rehab gives “training” and the shoe even greater personal significance.
I’m probably one of the few going gaga over these since trainers are always welcomed with open arms. What’s greater is it’s good to see the Swoosh creating a true signature model for the category, an element that’s long overdue. With it being such a rarity, the brand put their all into giving the DB a sneaker that functions but carries a sense of style as well.
The Zoom Revis comes tailor-made with Nike Flywire technology, TPU heel clip and a super-sized midfoot strap for security and comfort. With the performance elements in place, the design details get symbol-heavy – the Flywire strands spell out his number 24 in Roman numerals, “FAMILY” across the inside of the tongue and the neon sole and rivet studs represents the bridges of New York city. On the inside of the strap, there’s also one of Revis’ favorite quotes: “The only way to handle pressure is to apply it.”
Look for the Zoom Revis to go to Nike accounts soon.
