Nike Releases New Penn State Training Shoes

Whether you’re trying to trick strangers at the IM Building into thinking you’re an athlete or need to get from the IST building to UHS without any blisters, the superstars at Nike have you covered once again.

This morning the Nike Train Speed 4’s were dropped with a special paint job to feature a bakers dozen or so of our nation’s best athletic powerhouses. Obviously, we only care about the Penn State shoes and obviously, Michigan’s are tacky. Penn State’s feature a smooth navy blue and white color scheme with a big Nittany Lion logo on the tongue of the shoe.


If you happen to be in Happy Valley, you can stop by the student bookstore and grab them before they run out. If you’re down in Rio however, don’t despair. You can still order a pair online from Nike. If you order online from Nike or the Penn State bookstore, these bad boys will run you $110 plus some shipping, so the best bet for poor college students  will be waiting in line at the bookstore come sylly week.

For the people who’d rather hang at the beach than the gym, Nike also has a pair of Penn State flip-flops going for a cool $45.


Happy running, Happy Valley!
