Nike’s design team worked with Lance Armstrong to create a Zoom Tiempo inspired by Lance’s hometown, Austin Texas. The Air Zoom Tiempo draws inspiration directly from the cyclists of Austin and one of the city’s most iconic cycling stores in the world, Mellow Johnny’s. The shoe also draws inspiration from the art bikes created to help raise funds and awareness for the Lance Armstrong Foundation this summer. Finally, it takes the iconic LIVESTRONG yellow and integrates it throughout the design of the shoe.

Here is a sick and clean colab with nike and undftd.. check it out!
Come down to UNDFTD on La Brea and sign up to win a UNDFTD/CTRS fixed gear bike.
As luck would have it Lance Armstrong would enter this years Tour De France and Nike’s Livestrong/CTRS project fell right in line with the premiere of this bike.
To enter to win is easy. Just cruise down to the shop on La Brea, buy a Livestrong band for 1 buck, receive a form to enter and win. Of course, all proceeds goes toward the research for the cure of cancer. Entirely, a meaningful and worthwhile cause.
All other UNDFTD locations [SM / SL / LV] will have bands and forms in the very near future. But for now, come down to La Brea and say hi to Fred, Big Tone, Jay and Byata.
The winner will be announced June 28th. At a TBA event.

Developed specifically for the Nike Sportswear LIVESTRONG Collection, the footwear design team looked at the Nike Tiempo, first launched through the Soccer category, and enhanced the shoe with key elements to work with today’s inner city bike rider. Developed in partnership with eight bike riders from around the globe, the Nike City Tiempo was constructed with a board last, a process referencing ACG’s history. The board last translates into a stiffer construction, making the pushdown of the pedal stroke easier on the rider. Throughout the construction of the shoe, the designers have increased the density of the rubber and the derometer. Inside the shoe, the sockliner has been updated to also be a bit stiffer, giving support to the foot.
The upper of the shoe mirrors the look of the original Tiempo, however has been updated with a tougher leather to last through the wear and tear the cages on the pedals may cause. The City Tiempo pack includes eight colorways inspired by the iconic yellow of LIVESTRONG.
Each color represents a different rider and their respective city. The eight riders include; Kyle Demers from New York City, Jupiter Desphy from Los Angeles, Superted from London, Takaharu “Hal” Okada from Tokyo, Yorgo Tloupas representing Paris, Berlin’s Henrik Kuerschner, Massan from San Francisco, and Lance Armstrong representing his hometown of Austin.
Here we present you the Nike Sportswear Livestrong City Tiempo line-up that you will see release this month, with the following four colorways coming later this summer
