nike trainer genealogy The Genealogy of Nike Training

The sole purpose of training is to achieve a physical goal with the utmost in preparation, attacking the task at hand with the “you got this” mentality. Since 1987, Nike has fervently pushed the Trainer as the be-all-end-all footwear option for those willing to put in the work to get things done. It started with the Air Trainer 1, a shoe that Tinker Hatfield created with no particular athlete in mind, but it was Bo Jackson’s emergence as the ultimate do-it-all athlete that made the earlier Air Trainer line his own. What followed was a series of designs and other signature models for Barry Sander, Michael Vick, Darrelle Revis, and more names that align with the “elite” category, and ends at the newly unveiled Nike Lunar 180 Trainer SC. Walk through this Genealogy of Nike Training for a time-line of significant designs and short descriptions of each and let let us know which classic (or contemporary) Trainer model you like best.

Nike Lunar 180 Trainer SC “Superbowl”

Is the Nike Lunar 180 Trainer SC pictured above the most subdued of all the Super Bowl XLVIII-inspired ’Silver Speed Collection’? The debut drop for this new Free plus LunarLon over 180 Max Air remake of the classic Air Trainer SC High certainly has its fair share of shine thanks to the metallic silver, mudguard, hologram tongue tags and Swooshes and icey sole but the more muted silver application covering most of the upper might actually make them the most wearable of the set. Let us know your opinion on Nike’s Super Bowl 48 sneakers once you’ve seen more of these Lunar 180 Trainer SCs below, and grab yours two Mondays from now on the 27th from top Nike Sportswear retailers like Social Status.

Following up the detailed look at the Nike Air Trainer 1 “Superbowl” is another inclusion in the Air Trainer “Superbowl” Pack – the Nike Air Trainer Max ’94. This one has a different look to it, with only hints of the lenticular detailing on the Swoosh and heel badge. Instead, the Air Trainer Max ’94 “Superbowl” opts for a camo-like busy pattern on the mudguard and a full translucent outsole. These will release on January 27th, so check out the detailed images and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates.

Nike CJ81 Trainer Max – White – Silver – Volt – Blue

January 13th, 2014 by | 3 comments

The Nike CJ81 Trainer Max “Megatron” was definitely one of the most celebrated of the Calvin Johnson signature releases to date thanks to their outright homage to his nickname. But all of the pairs actually come standard with that Transformers looking CJ looking on the back, so each of them have a little bit of that robots in disguise flavor. Pictured here is an unreleased colorway with that logo on full display. Continue reading for a better glimpse at the white/silver/volt/blue version of the CJ81 Trainer, straight from the collection of Sacramento Kings player Derrick Williams, and let us know in the comments if you approve.

Nike Trainer SC 2010 x Air Max LeBron 7 Hybrid PE for Amare Stoudemire

nike air tir trainer sc lebron 7 hybrid amare stoudemire 1 Nike Trainer SC 2010 x Air Max LeBron 7 Hybrid PE for Amare Stoudemire

Okay, that’s a lot to take in at once, but bear with us here. This hybrid mash-up matches three seemingly exclusive entities – the upper of the 2010 remake of the Trainer SC, the cushioning footbed of the Air Max LeBron 7, and the Nike-issued PE logo of Amare Stoudemire. If you go back to 2010, when the shoes were two of Nike’s most prized products and Amare Stoudemire was playing MVP ball, this trifecta would’ve been a pretty huge story, but given the random timing of this shoe’s appearance, this Trainer SC 2010 x Air Max LeBron 7 PE for STAT falls under the category of “weirdest Nike samples in history”. The Auburn colorways match Amare’s Phoenix uniform pretty well, and given that the PF/C always had a strange selection of footwear following the demise of his signature line with Nike, we’re wondering what other shoes were made produced for the fickle guy. Don’t bet on a release, so check out the full photo below for perhaps the only time you’ll ever see this shoe.

How 3D Printing Can Change The Future Of Nike Footwear

nike 3d printing How 3D Printing Can Change The Future Of Nike Footwear

Over the last decade, 3D printing has made huge forward strides in development. This style of additive manufacturing has the potential to change the way manufacturing as a whole is done – and for Nike, a company that heavily relies on creating molds and primary structures that assist in the production process, the possibilities are endless. For designers, 3D Printing has sped up the process by months; molds that typically takes 2-3 months to take shape can now be accomplished in a few short hours. During today’s Nike Super Bowl Symposium, the Vapor Carbon Cleat was unveiled – a shoe that utilizes the next-generation manufacturing process on the actual shoe. The cleat will debut at the Super Bowl, undoubtedly the sport’s most significant platform.
