NIKE AIR TRAINER 1 WEEK

With the Nike Air Trainer 1 making a feverish comeback thanks to the ‘Safari’ release a few weeks back, it’s time to check out five noteworthy Air Trainer 1s in history before it makes a big-time return later this year. Some historical data: the Air Trainer 1 was Nike’s first Training shoe and served as the starting point for the widespread Cross-Training movement that spanned nearly a decade. It was during that span that Nike served up some delicious Trainer goodies worn by the world’s greatest athletes, from the loud-mouthed Jon McEnroe to the do-it-all Bo Jackson. Of course, the original ‘Chlorophyll’ has already established itself as a ‘Hall of Fame’ sneaker, so we’re letting that one ride high in order to give these five Air Trainer 1 bangers some airtime here in Classics Revisited – starting with the 2003 release of the Air Trainer 1 ‘Python’.

With 25 years in existence under its belt, there are countless colorways that deserve to be noted. The AT1, however, didn’t see much in terms of artist or store collaborations, but still managed to please Air Trainer 1 fans with what might the most consistently impressive library of colorways. One of the more off-the-wall make-ups was 2003’s Python, which used a dark shade of the reptilian skin to build the upper. The remainder of the shoe would feature leather in white and dark grey shades, completing one of the most memorable Air Trainer 1s in history inspired by one of the more forgotten 80’s classics – the Nike Air Python of 1987 (released in the same year as the Air Trainer 1). Alongside the Trainer version was an Air Max 90 release finished in similar manner (and equally as beloved). Perhaps Nike Sportswear will get a bit creative with the looming 2012 releases? We’ll have to wait and see, so sit back and enjoy the Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘Python’ below and let us know if you’ve got these in your collection.
