A notorious scholar and heir to a massive hotel fortune famously claimed that the stuff responsible for plants turning solar radiation into energy for life wasn’t all that interesting. This critical point in Billy Madison’s maturity where the titular protagonist realizes the folly of his scattered focus isn’t all that different from a revolution in athletic training that turned on the lightbulb for millions in the 1980s. The ‘Chlorophyll’ Nike Air Trainer 1 brings us back to the genesis of cross-training, and there’s even a bit of the mouthy everyman we loved in Happy Gilmore with memories of a scrappy John McEnroe tossing his racquet in protest with the ease of Bo Jackson power cleaning multiple plates. So no, definitely not ‘borophyll’ and in fact one of the game-changing releases we’ll always remember as grown-ups, this OG Air Trainer 1 is slated to arrive at Nike Sportswear retailers like Rock City Kicks‘ Fayetteville outpost next Saturday, October 20th.
