My interest in rugby is at an all-time high after checking out the Nike Air Max 1 England Rugby. The Air Max 1 England Rugby was created by NIKEid in Niketown London to pay tribute to England's rugby squad as it does battle against the world in the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

The Air Max 1 England Rugby is an all-black Air Max incorporating Nike's Hyperfuse technology. The shoe has the words "New" and "Blood" written on each tongue, a tribute to the youth of England's team. The shoes themselves are nice, but what is really captivating is the players-only pack that includes a custom pair of headphones. The headphones are Beats by Dre and feature a red rose, the team logo, and the Nike logo. While the player pack may be forever out of reach for ordinary folk, the Air Max 1 England Rugby can be purchased for $198 at the Nike 1948 store in East London.
