NIKE 6.0 AND ALKALINE TRIO SHOE COLLABORATION

Beaverton OR. (June 9th, 2008)- Nike 6.0 and punk stalwarts, Alkaline Trio, joined forces to translate the energy of action sports and punk rock into a pair of collaborative kicks. The Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush and a limited run of messenger bags will be released June 27th exclusively at Jacks Retail Shop in Huntington Beach. Alkaline Trio recently kicked off their summer tour, supporting their new album Agony and Irony and the release of the shoe. The Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush will be available at select retailers nationwide on July 11th.

“The collaboration between Nike 6.0 and Alkaline Trio was a natural fit. Punk rock’s independent spirit is a common thread with action sports, and the band member’s live the lifestyle we support.” said Tim Reede, Nike 6.0 Product Line Manager. “We were able to create unique materials and details that reflect the band’s history, resulting in a collaboration that truly tells a story.”

“We chose red and black as the main colors to reflect our Chicago roots and pay homage to the Bulls. We are huge fans,” said Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio. “I’m also into sneakers, so seeing the swoosh and our logo on one product is unbelievable. The shoe looks amazing and provides some insight into who we are.”

Custom design elements include reflective details and bike-tread inspired graphics, correlating to the band’s formative years in Chicago where the members met while working as bike messengers. Distressed materials translate the punk ethos, and the Alkaline Trio logo is featured on the heel cup. The Heart and Sole Cush is constructed of all synthetics, supporting select band members who are vegetarian.

The Air Zoom Cush, new to the Nike 6.0 line, is a low profile action-sports shoe, built for high performance and increased responsiveness. The Cush features a one-piece toe vamp and V-oriented grooves in the sole to increase flex. For more information, and video content visit www.nike6.com.

As the Heart and Sole Air Zoom Cush drops, the Alkaline Trio will be in the midst of a Summer headlining tour in support of their highly anticipated new album Agony & Irony, in stores July 1st. The national tour kicked off May 30th in Vancouver, sweeping major markets across the country and ends in Kansas on August 3rd.

I like the box better than the shoe!
