Press Release from Superfad
The advantage of Nike Zoom Alpha Talon’s exceptional traction is showcased with heart pumping, clanging intensity in a new spot by Superfad. Nike’s desire to convey the robustness of the shoe to its professional football users inspired Superfad to design the spot using the visual metaphor of heavy machinery.
Matching specific shoe attributes with industrial mechanics, the shoe is transformed into a massive machine moving with exacting power under a night sky. The surrounding environment, an empty football stadium, places the shoe at center stage. The high-energy experience of intensive moving parts is supported by a driving music track by World Gang and Sound Design by Clatter & Din.
