[Update (8/11): The shoe will indeed launch August 12. Get release info here.]
The Swoosh’s latest “Week Zero” collection continues, a special collection of Free Trainer 5.0s coming together before the college football season begins, each inspired by one of the sport’s national powers. Next up: the Buckeyes.
The Nike Free Trainer 5.0 Ohio State is a perfect match for the team’s uniforms, as crimson and black combine on the upper, built atop a white Free 5.0 sole unit. Really underscoring the theme though is that heel — the team’s Buckeye helmet stickers are applied directly to reflective silver heel. It’s kind of amazing, actually; a perfect marriage of theme and good looks.
Nothing’s confirmed yet, but it sounds like the Nike Free Trainer 5.0 Ohio State — along with the UNC, Texas, Tennessee, Michigan State and USC editions — will release August 12. Stay tuned for confirmation.
