The Transformers film sequel is the inspiration behind a new collection of three performance basketball shoes launched by sportswear giant Nike.

The new shoes are the Nike Zoom Fight Club, linked to robo-villain Megatron; the Nike Zoom FP, connected to Bumblebee; and the Nike Sharkalaid, linked to Soundwave.

The collaboration with toy maker Hasbro covers special packaging and retro graphics, incorporating the original Hasbro graphics, J-hooks for hanging display and decoder profiles on the back of the boxes highlighting each robot's powers.

The footwear is available now in limited quantities in China, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Taiwan and the US at the House of Hoops. The Nike Zoom FP and the Nike Sharkalaid retail at US$100, while the Nike Zoom Flight Club costs $120.
