Nike在各大社交媒体账号上发布的预告视频以某个“在德克萨斯州南部”的计算机生成平原的特写镜头拉开序幕,然后进行拉远,呈现出一幅巨大的麦田怪圈,上面有一个外星人的头像,周围环绕着几何图案和两个Swoosh Logo。“日全食刚刚开始,”随文配注写道。





Nike teases Victor Wembanyama’s new alien logo during the eclipse

As the moon shrouded the sun Monday afternoon, Nike unveiled what appears to be the logo for Victor Wembanyama’s forthcoming signature line of shoes and apparel.

The teaser video released across Nike’s social media accounts opens with a sweeping close-up shot of a computer-generated field “somewhere in South Texas” before zooming out to reveal a vast crop circle featuring an alien head bordered by geometric patterns and two swoosh logos. “The total eclipse has just begun,” the accompanying caption reads.

The crop circle design is an apparent nod to Wembanyama’s nickname – the “Alien” – and Nike decided to offer a sneak peek during Monday’s solar eclipse as thousands flocked to Texas to get within the path of totality. The marquee athletic brand will reportedly release the 20-year-old Spurs star’s first signature shoe in May, and those cosmic-inspired kicks will feature a pair of extraterrestrial faces on the heel and insole.

“It’s great because it is a new experience both for them and I," Wembanyama said in February of developing his signature logo and first retail sneakers with Nike. "We are all learning in this because it is really the first time in my life I have been asked anything about shoes really because I have had no choice most of my life. So, this is great. But I am still learning a lot about my own feet and my own body.”

Wembanyama has four games remaining in this dazzling rookie season, including Tuesday’s game at Memphis. He leads the NBA in blocks (3.6) and the Spurs in points (21.3), rebounds (10.7) and steals (1.3) per game.
