air trainer 1 shima pack Classics Revisited: Nike Air Trainer 1 Shima Shima (2003)

NIKE AIR TRAINER 1 WEEK

Our final Air Trainer 1 featured of the week focuses on a set made exclusively for the European, Canadian, and Asian market – the Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘Shima Shima’ Pack of 2003. In fact, many Air Trainer 1s were exclusive to European retailers, and the ‘Shima Shima’ Pack (which also included three Dunk High colorways and two Air Max 1 colorways) was certainly one of the more notable of the bunch; the two primary colorways is the White/Blue/Grey version, recognized as ‘Shima 1′ and the Brown/Hay version, recognized as Shima 2, but a third ‘Shima 3′ colorway was released for the Nike Dunk High only (light blue/yellow). Each set of ‘Shima’ releases were released simultaneously (obviously beginning with the 1), but what tied all three capsules together was the unique pinstriping on the interior lining of the shoe. The term ‘Shima’ is one of the more cryptic of nicknames in Nike footwear history considering this clearly Japanese-derived concept was at one point released outside of the country of origin, but the respect for the Shima Pack is certainly validated for its great colorways and awesome materials. This concludes the first wave of Air Trainer 1 throwbacks, so check out the gallery below and stay tuned for a fresh new crop of kicks next week in Classics Revisited!

NIKE AIR TRAINER 1 WEEK

On Tuesday, Sneaker News featured the Nike Air Trainer 1 SB ‘Gold Digger’ as part of the Nike Air Trainer 1′s residence in Classics Revisited for the week. The HUF-bred design might be the most notable Nike Air Trainer 1 SB of the small bunch, but the original deserves as much attention, does it not? Here’s a look at the 2003 release of the Nike Air Trainer 1 SB in Black/Obsidian-Taupe-Paul Brown; it is indeed the first ever Nike Air Trainer 1 output from the Nike Skateboarding label, but like much of the Nike SB releases of that series, the Air Trainer 1 SB ‘Paul Brown’ did not feature any ‘SB’ designation, with the exception of the silver box. The ‘Paul Brown’ moniker comes straight from the official colorway of the shoe, as a few other footwear releases have also been dubbed with that familiar color scheme. More of the first-ever Nike Air Trainer 1 SB is right ahead, so check out the gallery and let us know if these ring any past memories from your early Nike SB hoarding days!

air trainer 1 twisted prep 2003 Classics Revisited: Nike Air Trainer 1 Twisted Prep (2003)

NIKE AIR TRAINER 1 WEEK

Our Hump Day feature for Classics Revisited intertwines this week’s topic of the Nike Air Trainer 1 to one of the more memorable Packs put together by Nike during the early 2000′s. Nike introduced the ‘Twisted Prep’ Pack consisting of a team of the Nike Air Trainer 1, Nike Dunk Low, and Nike Blazer Mid. The Pack contained two “preppy” compositions consisting of grey/green/pink and light grey/mahogany – your run-of-the-mill colorways seen on private boarding school uniforms and country clubs around the world, but what really gave these Twisted Prep Pack its character was the argyle-print insoles in each of the shoes. Currently, the Nike Air Trainer 1 “Twisted Prep” is an oft-searched item among the Air Trainer 1 faithful, but as most of the early-2000 AT1s, finding a deadstock pair is a tough task! Check out both colorways from the Twisted Prep pack below and stay tuned for more goodies as we near the end of the week.

Classics Revisited: HUF x Nike Air Trainer 1 SB “Gold Diggers” (2005)

nike air trainer 1 sb gold diggers Classics Revisited: HUF x Nike Air Trainer 1 SB Gold Diggers (2005)

NIKE AIR TRAINER 1 WEEK

When Nike Skateboarding first started in 2002, the only available models were there SB Dunk and the newly designed SB URL. Today, the SB line-up boasts a number of pro-model signature shoes bearing the names of Paul Rodriguez, Eric Koston, Stefan Janoski, and Omar Salazar, and during its eleven-year run, SB has experienced all the ups and downs of adding some major names to its team of riders while reveling in the SB Dunk mass hysteria. With so many major headlines running through Skateboarding in that span, we often forget about the short-lived models that had the tough task of hanging with the big-boy Dunks; the ‘skate-ready’ version of the Nike Air Trainer 1 is one of those sneakers that more often that not leave you befuddled as to how you forgot about it in the first place, so we’re taking the time to highlight the most notable of the Air Trainer 1 SB bunch – the ‘Gold Diggers’ of 2005.

After the Air Trainer 1 SB debuted in 2003 with Black/Paul Brown colorway, San Francisco-based HUF got the opportunity to work on the Air Trainer 1 after a completing a major hit with the SB Dunk High. The historic San Francisco Gold Rush is solely responsible for transforming the small settlement into a bustling boomtown during the mid-1800′s, so HUF revisited that era in Bay Area history by using the earthy colorway accentuated by the rich brown leather upper and the speckled midsole, and finished it off with the pick-axe and shovel logo with the city’s initials on the heel. After the release of the ‘Gold Diggers’, the Air Trainer 1 SB didn’t see much light of day and finally bowed out after 2007′s ‘Horror Pack’ (making way for the Air Trainer II SB). More of this classic Air Trainer 1 below, so check out the gallery below and stay tuned for more AT1 goodies tomorrow in Classics Revisited!

Classics Revisited: Nike Air Trainer 1 “Python” (2003)

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.
