Sporting Kansas City striker Dom Dwyer is one of the League’s top goal scorers — and one of its most lively personalities. After beginning his career in the Norwich City youth system, Dwyer came to the United States for college and Sporting KC drafted him in 2012. Before earning a permanent role with the first team, Dwyer learned during a USL Pro loan spell with Orlando City that he played his best when being himself – gregarious and fun.
You know when people talk about customized footwear? Usually it has to do with some special color way, or some trim, or some embellishment. But it usually does not mean turning a pair of soccer cleats into a full on robot. Like some serious transformer type shit. Well that is exactly what is in the photo above. A Nike Hypervenom turf, goes from a soccer shoe to a robot thanks to the vision of TRANSSHOEFORMERS.
Just for a little reference, here is what this robot looked like in its previous life.
So here is the story. My boy Curtis stopped by the office this week. Curtis is a soccer head who has a deep background in the sneaker world. Ever heard of the Dunkxchange? That’s my dude right there. Anyway, Curtis has been telling me about his guy that turns soccer cleats into robots. I love soccer boots and I love robots. So I’m all in on this. He sent me some pictures of the robot which looked rad. But I have been waiting to see this robot in real life. So he drops by the office so we can rap about some projects we are working in, and then he drops this dude on the desk. BOOM!
One of the greatest soccer related items I have ever seen. So much steeze in one former soccer shoe. One of the things I really like about this , besides everything, is you can do this with used boots. Recycle your shit. Don’t just throw it away. Send it to the TRANSSHOEFORMER and let the dude make a robot out of your boots that you were done with it anyway. Extend the life of your boots, bro. Have a few made. Get your own army of soccer cleat robots. Whatever you do, I’m pretty sure you need at least one of these guys in your life.
The MLS All Star festivities and game returns next week, and it will all be going down in Portland. The All star Game will feature the best of what MLS has to offer, against pretty much that the best in club soccer around the world has to offer in Bayern Munich. Portland being Portland, there should be some rad things going on.
And now we can announce that we have once again got together with our friends from EA SPORTS and KICKTV to throw a post All Star Game party. Wednesday night, after the game, (that’s why it’s called The Post Game) we will be co-hosting a party with these fine folks at The Castaway in Portland.
If you are going to be in Portland next Wednesday night, and you like soccer, and you like good people, and you like drinks (or even if you don’t), and you like to have a good time, then you need to be at The Castaway. We’ll probably be passing out a handful of free shirts as well (can’t argue with free!) Come on by, bring some friends, make some new friends. Let’s hang out and chat and enjoy the night. It’s really that simple.
The event is 21+. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lee Nguyen gets everything right with this free kick. You won’t see a free kick any better than this. Well done, sir. Well done.
In news that should thrill Everton fans and break the heart of ISPS, it looks like Romelu Lukaku will be signing a five year deal with Everton. This coming after a very successful first season under Roberto Martinez and the long term signing of Ross Barkley has Everton looking to build in a big way. I’ve never fully understood why Lukaku kept getting loaned out. But then again, I’m not a manager in the Premier League, so what do I really know anyway.
Nike and Manchester United have unveiled the third kit for the 2014-15 season. Featuring entirely in two tones of blue, the kit is inspired by United’s tradition of blue kits from the 1980s, as well as uniform worn when they became the first English side to win the European Cup in 1968.
The shirt, shorts and socks are all a rich and vibrant blue on the front with a darker tone of the same color on the entire back. These two tones are divided by a red stripe on both sides of the kit representing United’s famous home color.
These stripes stretch from the collar, along both shoulders, down each side of the shirt, shorts and right down to the socks.
The half-and-half appearance is a traditional football design, but this is the first season it has ever been used on the front and back.
The shirt boasts a classic design with a sophisticated polo neck collar and three buttons in the darker tone of blue.
Inside the back of the neck is a label with the message, “Youth, Courage, Greatness” to represent the club’s values.
I don’t know how much this third kit will get worn this season, but it’s a very good looking jersey. I’m a fan of the polo collar, so I might be a little bit biased there, but this is a sharp looking jersey.The Chevy logo is prominent once again, and quickly grabs your attention, which I don’t love. I’m sure the Chevy folks are happy with that.
This jersey will be available starting September 25th.
