On December 1st, 2012 Nike Football launched Darrelle Revis’ new signature training shoe—the Nike Zoom Revis. So the first question one might ask is why release a shoe when the main attraction is out of action for the season? Well the folks at Nike are one step ahead of you. According to Nike, “coming off his early season injury, the word ‘training’ still takes on the same meaning. His rehab journey takes on the same level of intensity as his normal training regimen and the Nike Zoom Revis is built in much the same way—for speed, agility and versatility.”

Apparently Mr. Revis himself has been intimately involved in the shoe’s creation. “The Nike Zoom Revis was built from insights taken directly from the one of the premier cornerbacks in professional football,” said Nike Football Footwear Designer Director Ken Link. “We’ve worked with Darrelle Revis for over a year to be able to deliver new insights around all aspects of his training. This shoe allows athletes to train for speed on different surfaces, in different ways and in different environments leading up to game day.”

Well if the sneaker blogosphere is any indication, irrespective of whether Revis is donning a uniform this season or not, the all-purpose, all-terrain shoe has gotten some great buzz since its release with sneaker news.com hailing it as “one of the best of 2012.”

So, whether in the market for a new all purpose, all-terrain cross-trainer or just a good old sneakerhead, check out some the Zoom Revis unique functional features and style design elements


    • Function – According to Nike designers a “’traction on demand’ element in the outsole engages with the ground to provide the ultimate in traction on any surface when the athlete needs it most.”
    • Style – The pattern is said to “represent the rivets on a bridge and the Volt colorway represents the bright city lights on the bridges in NYC.”
