Nike x Futura x Syracuse University | Be True

As a Syracuse alum, I've been wanting to post about this Nike x Futura x Syracuse Be True collection for a while now. Unfortunately I was out of town and couldn't make it to the release party where Futura, Pearl Washington, and Paul Harris were in attendance, but I was able to make it down to 21 Mercer yesterday to snap a few pics...

Futura basically got an entire store takeover, with his rendition of the Orangeman on the walls over his camo print. And for the event he also gave the store his graffiti treatment, even turning some of his traditional atom like designs into basketballs. There was also some of Futura's photography on display from his recent trip to a 'Cuse game at the Carrier Dome.

The apparel collection consists of a t-shirt, hoody, track jacket, and stadium jacket, all coming in 2 colorways. The t-shirt features Futura's Orangman on the from with the camo print in 3m on the back, in both black and white. The hoody comes in grey with orange details, as well as black on black. The track jacket comes in white (seen below) as well as black on black. And the stadium jacket comes in blue with blue all over stitched details, as well as orange patches, like a varsity jacket, also the same details in another black on black version.

The footwear collection consists of an AF-1 premuim in all black and one in all grey that simply reads "Be True" on the bottom sole. There is also a Dunk Hi that features Futura's camo in black and orange all over the shoe.

Not everything is available online, but you can shop some of the collection here.

So happy and honored that both Nike and Futura picked Syracuse to do this artist collection with. And what a great year to pick, as 'Cuse sits at #4 on the polls for mens Basketball.
