When John Mayer plays the guitar in the desert and witnessing a duel between two men, one looks like a ninja. This olde time Wild West gunfight also has modern imagery like neon trees, but it is not a commercial for the second season of Westworld, it’s an ad for Nike’s very unique and bold new sneakers, the Air VaporMax Moc 2 x ACRONYM, which you can see below.
The collaboration between Nike and ACRONYM is to celebrate Air Max Day 2018. ACRONYM is a Berlin-based fashion company that was founded by Errolson Hugh and Michaela Sachenbacher in 1994. ACRONYM brings their unique futuristic goth style from Germany to the latest pair of VaporMax sneakers. The VaporMax Moc 2 x ACRONYM features Nike Flyknit uppers, plus contrasting heel support with industrial patterns throughout.
The companies teamed up to create three colorways of the VaporMax Moc 2 x ACRONYM called “Johnny’s Icy Passage” (Light Bone/Volt/Light Bone), “The Illusional ‘Ja” (Black/Volt) and “Thirsty Bandit” (Sail/Cargo Khaki/Dark Stucco). Johnny’s Icy Passage releases on March 23rd, The Illusional ‘Ja on March 26th, and Thirsty Bandit on April 26th on Nike’s app, website, and select retailers. They’re already sold out on the ACRONYM website. The cost is $220. The spaghetti western-style Nike commercial features Mayer, and ACRONYM founder Errolson Hugh, who plays both men in the shootout.
