Sunday is the day of reckoning for NCAA Division I basketball teams, as the selection committee unveils the field for March Madness. Nike iD decided to get in on the fun and hold it’s own tournament of sorts.
With March Madness about to kick off, Nike iD is sponsoring a pretty cool tournament of their own. Both V.I.P.’s and regular Joe’s have submitted a ton of Nike iD concoctions at the 21 Mercer store in New York and at the Montalban in Los Angeles in what will become a East Coast vs. West Coast battle of the kicks. Starting tomorrow, 32 Nike iD sneakers designed by 16 V.I.P.’s and 16 lucky sneakerheads who’s designs were selected will begin to face-off in a bracket-style survival of the illest tournament.
This will all be taking place starting today over at the iD Royale site, when the 32 participants will be unveiled. Dunk’s, AF1′s, AM90′s, Cortez’s, Currents, Blazer’s, & Rejuven8′s are all in the mix and you can check out all the submissions as well. On top of that, all submissions are up for orders and there are some truly dope color schemes in all models. So take some time and click through the kicks… it’s not like you were planning on working anyway.
Grand Prize is a $1000 Nike shopping spree and a pair of custom-made Bespoke shoes.
