Lance Armstrong has collaborated with Nike Sportswear on a limited collection of sneakers. I suppose this has been a long time coming, but we finally get a closer look at some of these shoes.

So first up is the Nike Footscape, in collaboration with London’s very own The Hideout. They really jazzed this one up using woven horsehairs for the uppers. Something different for sure.

Nike teamed up with long time collaborator Futura Labs on this next pair. This is a remake of the previously collaborated shoe the FLOM (For the Love Of Money). Originally only 24 were produced and 3 more were offered up in a raffle, so if you missed your chance to get them then… nows your second and possibly last chance to get these.

Another Limited Edition shoe is being re-released in the new Livestrong colours. Popular tattoo artists Mister Cartoon once again puts his touch on the Air Force 1. Using lasers to etch in details from his city, the end result is something to behold.

Last but not least is another Air force 1, the “Busy P vs. SO-ME”. But this time, ditching the rainbows for the livestrong. The shoe tells a sort of story about the arguements the two have had: “We thought it’d be a cool idea to let the shoe be a testimony of our friendly yet passionate dispute…battling it out on each foot.”

This is just the Stages Collection. Livestrong also has other shoes and apparell in its arsenal such as the Air Max 90s, the Everyday Lunar Racer, Cutters Pack Tiempo, and the Original Lunar Racer. As well as M-65 and Firefly jackets. And whats even cooler is that all proceeds go to Lance Armstrong’s anti-cancer foundation. I guess it’ll make you feel better about buying these shoes. Karma-five!
