American apparel brand Nike has teamed with the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) introducing esports-themed footwear and clothing. The news comes right before the 2020 League of Legends Global Finals taking place in Shanghai. Nike’s newly designed clothing will represent all four teams scheduled to face off against each other in the coming weeks.
Nike dedicated its exclusive launch to showcasing LPL pride. The items bring in bright hues, colorful designs, and comfortable threads. Most notably, Nike also designed new team uniforms for every player to wear in the global finals. This isn’t the first time Nike has teamed with Riot Games for esports-themed clothing. Last year, Nike unveiled LPL Team Kits ahead of the 2019 World Championship.

Part of the collection includes blue, white, and red-colored jackets. Nike used traditional and modern details to represent important symbols, such as the Chinese Dragon. As for the footwear, the company released a World Championship-inspired design for the Air Jordan I Zoom Air CMFT. Every item in the collection will feature the iconic Nike swoosh alongside the other team-oriented patterns.
“Good Game” Nike apparel
In addition to working with the LPL once again, Nike announced its upcoming “Good Game” apparel line. This line is unrelated to the LPL and focuses more on esports. The company designed the footwear and clothing with dynamic pixel-art patterns and colorful details. Products in this collection included in this line are the Air Max 90, Blazer Mid 77, Air Force 1 Low, Air Force 1 Hi, Air Max 270 React, Air Max 2X, and Joyride Dual Run 2 sneakers. Besides the footwear, the line will also carry shirts, hoodies, pullovers, and more.
The exclusive LPL-themed apparel will be available starting this September. Riot will soon release more product details on the official League of Legends Pro League website or the Nike App. Be sure to stick with Daily Esports for more League of Legends updates.
