Before he earned the nickname “Megatron,” Calvin Johnson was torching defenses in both high school and college, going to Georgia Tech as the top-rated player in the state of Georgia before racking up 178 receptions, 2,927 yards, 28 touchdowns and countless awards/highlight reel catches over the course of his collegiate career — making him perhaps the greatest Yellow Jacket of all time. Now Nike pays homage to Johnson’s Atlanta roots with a “Georgia Peach” edition of his signature CJ3 Flyweave Trainer. Built for multidirectional explosiveness on the field and combining Flyweave technology with Dynamic Flywire support, zoned Zoom Air cushioning and a delta node outsole, the “Georgia Peach” edition of the trainer appears in an appropriate Black/White-University Red-Sunset Glow colorway and sports a peach graphic on the heel for good measure. Look for the kicks to launch June 5 at NSW stockists and nike.com for $160 USD.
