Calvin Johnson is one of the best playmakers in the NFL, and he’s probably got the best nickname in the league, too: Megatron. The Detroit Lions’ star wide receiver is nicknamed after the Transfromers character, and thanks to Nike his connection with the Decepticon is getting a lot more real.

Nike and toy company Hasbro teamed up to create a sneaker and action figure collection based on Megatron — the robot and football player. The signature shoe, called the Nike CJ81 Megatron Trainer Max, is inspired by the Transformers character. It’s got a purple, red, and metallic silver color scheme, and includes the Decepticon logo on the heel. Its bold red swoosh and glossy purple finish will definitely make you the center of attention at the gym. Oh, and it parts of it glow in the dark to make you look even more robotic.

In a nutshell, the PS4 is an excellent console. It's well designed, has great graphics and gameplay capabilities, the PS Network is exciting, and the possibilities for remote play using the PS Vita are pretty cool. But there are some issues here that you might want to consider when comparing PS4 with Microsoft's forthcoming XBox One (which will be released next Friday).

reebok answer I OG colorway

In stores today is an old-school classic: Reebok's Answer I OG in black, red, and gold. The first Answer I was worn by NBA superstar Allen Iverson and hit the court in 1997. This re-released sneaker features the same DMX 10 moving air technology as the original shoe, and the design elements that made it iconic — the concealed laces, the I3 logo, and, of course, the color scheme. (Iverson's name is also embroidered on the tongue.) 

Check out a few more looks at the shoe, including some shots of it chilling on the streets of Philly, Iverson's old stomping grounds:
