I’ll admit that I wasn’t biggest fan of the Nike Zoom Vick line when they first came out in the mid-2000s. Mostly because I ignored it because I was in college and trainers weren’t my thing, but when I thought of Michael Vick, he was either the boss football player or the most unfair video game football character since Bo Jackson. My fondest memory of Nike and Michael Vick wasn’t even a shoe; it was the Michael Vick Experience. Ten years later, Nike is looking to convert people like myself who know Vick’s entire history and kids who might only know him in his second rehabilitated life as a former Eagles and current Jets quaterback with the return of his signature line.
First up is the Nike Zoom Vick 2, which we have for you to check out in video form courtesy of Champs Sports. It’s an OG colorway that matches up nicely with his Atlanta Falcons uniform at the time. So how does the trainer of ten years ago match up to today’s Frees and Flyknits and the like? Hard to say at the moment, but as a fashion statement, it’s hard not to notice the bold black and white color blocking, that’s for sure. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
