Penn State Football Represented In Nike’s “Week Zero Collection”
In downtown State College, you can find lots Nike apparel representing Penn State — shirts, hats, shorts, scarves, etc. — but now the Nittany Lions can add shoes to that collection.
Penn State is one of thirteen colleges that are a part of the Nike College Football “Week Zero” collection. These Nike Free Trainer 5.0’s sport the custom colors of some major college football programs like Florida State, Alabama, Oregon, LSU, and others. Penn State joins Ohio State and Michigan State as the only Big Ten schools to have their own custom shoe. By releasing these new kicks, Nike is getting in on the hype surrounding the upcoming season.

“After months of preparation, training and practice, all of the hard work that athletes put in come together on Week Zero – the unofficial kickoff to the college football season,” Nike stated. “With the season beginning in two weeks, Nike is harnessing the passion and energy of 13 college football programs by releasing the Week Zero Collection.”
Nike has been a big partner with Penn State for many years, and that partnership shows from the exclusivity of the collection. Most recently, Nike helped Penn State create two options of the White Out t-shirt for fans to vote on. The best news of this new deal? The shoes won’t break the bank, as the limited edition shoes are listed at $110 and can be found online at Nike.com or at the Penn State Bookstore.
