Originally written June 01, 2013 on State of the Texans:
Last week Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt tweeted out a picture of his new Megawatt shoe coming out on June 1st. The shoe was released by Nike.com this morning at 7 a.m for $104.99 and this was the result.   They’ll be available at 7am central time tomorrow morning on http://t.co/oY3JfO84jk #MegaWatt pic.twitter.com/I6sQEKus7V — JJ Watt (@JJWatt) May 31, 2013   I just woke up and found out the shoes SOLD OUT in less than 2 minutes. Best fans in the world, I appreciate you guys! — JJ Watt (@JJWatt) June 1, 2013 The @JJWatt#MegaWatt Nike Free Trainer 5.0 has sold out on http://t.co/mq5tWkL1bN — Nike.com (@nikestore) June 1, 2013 Here is the link to purchase the shoes from this morning.  Also, it looks like the secondary market has already started their price gouge of the shoe. At OTA’s defensive end Antonio Smith was caught sporting a pair of the Mega Watt’s and we asked him about the shoes. Talked to Ninja about wearing the MegaWatts yesterday to practice, he said “J.J. knew I better have been the first one to get them.” #Texans — PDS (@PatDStat) May 30, 2013   Ninja also added “J.J. just gave them to me, I didn’t have to do anything for them.” #Texans — PDS (@PatDStat) May 30, 2013   The limited edition shoe is sold out, so good luck on finding a pair for a reasonable price.   You can follow Patrick on Twitter.  He is the Editor of State of the Texans.
