Nike Zoom Air FC 10/2 (Futura and Lance Armstrong FC)

POST #    1879

Back in July during the Tour de France, I saw a pair of Nike FCs on Freshness. They weren't your ordinary FCs, but a special Lance Armstrong FC that featured icons designed by Futura and Nike designer Mark Smith. As there were only 500 pairs released to the public through colette in Paris, I didn't really have my hopes set too high. Low and behold, that's where the girlfriend comes in. Despite the fact that I have way too many pairs of sneakers already, Shannan remembered when I showed the shoes to her and bought a pair off of eBay for me.

Each laser etched icon is symbolic of an element of Armstrong's life. From his fight with cancer, to his home state of Texas, to his relationship with Sheryl Crow. An awesome pair of sneakers to add to my already unnecessary collection. I wonder if these will ever make it out of the house, or even onto my feet.

Those are ridiculous! I wonder why the icon of Texas is backwards?
