Former star quarterback, Marcus Mariota, for the University of Oregon from 2012 to 2014, has received an exclusive pair of Nike Lunar Force 1s to celebrate Draft Day.

Becoming the first Oregon player and Hawaii-born athlete to ever win the Heisman Trophy in 2014, Mariota is due to be one of the top picks in today’s 2015 NFL Draft, (either the first or second pick).

While the sneakers are intended for Marcus Mariota only, there are no reports of a possible global release. Overall, the special edition Lunar Force 1s boast a predominantly White makeup with the addition of lasered graphics emblazoned across its toe box and vamp in contrasting hues of Copper/Brown, which references to Mariota’s native roots of Hawaii.

Furthermore, his number 8, alongside Hawaii’s 808 area code are subtle details implemented onto the commemorative silhouette.

Author’s Take

Cool pair for Marcus Mariota, although the pair is reminiscent of previous lasered Air Force 1s, but I can’t remember which specifically. If these were to be sold by Nike, it might actually do well in my opinion.
