Just where does the Air Trainer 1 rank among the greatest Nike innovations of all-time? With it being one of Tinker Hatfield’s first designs for one of the most polarizing professional sports athletes in history, the Air Trainer 1 is certainly more than just a sneaker, but an icon that changed the direction of Nike footwear that has landed it on a plateau unmatched by any other brand. With another release of the OG Chlorophylls on the way, we get to re-live that excitement from a quarter-century ago – the question is, do you already have a pair from the previous Retros? Asian retailers are preparing for a shipment of the Air Trainer 1 ‘Chlorophyll’ later this week, so expect these classics to hit retailers on our side very soon and let us know if you’ll be making room for another pair.
