Overkill recently teamed up with Nike and did the official release of the Nike Cortez Pack on January 31st. The worldwide pack will be released on February 14th. The pack comes with 2 pairs of sneakers. One which is blue is based on the classic 1972 style Cortez and the other a silver metallic which embodies a forward thinking, futuristic 2009 look.

I prefer the classic looking sneaker over the 2009 version. But in reality I perfer they toy. What toy you say? Well hold on a second and I'll tell you.

To promote the release of the sneakers Tokyoplastic created two characters Phil & Bill, based on Nike's co-founders Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman. And there is even this slick animation film so you can see how these little guys move.
