Nike Air Trainer 1 “BB51″ – Release Reminder

September 21st, 2012 by | 1 comment

trainer 1 bb51 releasing Nike Air Trainer 1 BB51   Release Reminder

The Air Trainer 1 already received a hefty boost of energy with the ‘Safari’ NRG release of a few weeks back, and tomorrow’s duet of BB51s looks to compound that energy as we near a drop of the original ‘Chlorophyll’. The story of the BB51 goes like this: this set of AT1s is a tribute to Nike founder Bill Bowerman, a former multi-sport athlete who rocked ’51′ on his football jersey while playing for the University of Oregon almost a century ago. The sickest feature is undoubtedly the BB51 call-out on the heel, replacing the Nike logo. Expect these at select Nike Sportswear retailers like Sneaker Bistro tomorrow or cop them right now on eBay.

If it didn’t feel quite right to lump the first Swoosh cross-trainer’s 25th birthday in with the Air Safari’s silver anniversary, Nike Sportswear has more than remedies any issues with a couple of exiting new revelations.  Not only will the 1987 original ‘Chlorophyll’ edition return to always-hungry retro trainer fans, but we’ll also get a duo of designs inspired by the man without whom Tinker Hatfield’s genius designs may have never had a platform.  The Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘BB51′ shouts out Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman and his University of Oregon football number on black and Vachetta Tan leather builds replete with premium details.  Expect these at NSW stores like Social Status this Friday, September 21st and check out new photos of both BB51 Air Trainer 1s after the jump below.

nike trainer 1 premium bb51 pack release info 1 Nike Air Trainer 1 Premium BB51   Release Info

While Bill Bowerman’s name might not ring out as loud as some other Nike big-wigs the co-founder is very much an icon in his own right, responsible for the initial handshake partnership with Phil Knight that got that footwear empire going in the first place. This two pair pack pays homage to the deceased Bowerman, dipping the Tinker Hatfield designed Nike Air Trainer 1 Mid Premium in a premium look that features Bill’s initials across the back along with his football jersey number (coincidentally the ’51′ doubles as a marker for the year in which he won the Bill Hayward Amateur Athlete of the Year award). Both pairs will launch on September 21st, so click through with us to make up your mind on which you’re copping and be advised that you can scoop up the Nike Air Trainer 1 Premium “BB51″ a little early from spots like Crooked Tongues.

Nike Air Trainer 1 Premium “BB51″ – Black – Khaki

Among the chief reasons that Beaverton is synonymous with the world’s best sneakers is another famed Oregon ‘B’ who shared serious ties with the Ducks family. Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman came back to his alma mater after a tour of duty with the US Army in WWII, led the ‘Track Men of Oregon’ to an incredible stretch of success in the 1960s, then set his waffle iron to ‘world domination’ and pushed the Swoosh to the top before passing on the eve of the new millennium. Bowerman will always remain a part of Nike’s bedrock, and two luxurious new takes on one of their superstar designers’ game-changers will soon release in tribute to his contributions. The Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘BB51′ remembers Bowerman’s Ducks football days and takes things upscale with a premium black leather build joined by another in caramel nubuck that you’ll in some new photos later. Click through for more photos of the black ‘BB51′ Air Trainer 1s and stick with Sneaker News for US release info.

After taking a close look at the black beauty from Nike Sportswear’s luxurious tribute to co-founder Bill Bowerman, here we examine that same premium quality in different materials and colors. The Nike Air Trainer 1 Premium ‘BB51′ is equally impressive with its khaki/black distribution switched, this nubuck pair adding a rugged dimension by way of its tangential connections to the iconic ‘wheat’ Timberland look. They symbolize Bowerman’s constructive influence on a brand that built on his success coaching the Oregon Ducks track team, and imagine him at the very heart of the brand by swapping out the heel logo for a varsity-styled ‘BB51′ script. Have a closer look after the jump, let us know which ‘BB51′ Air Trainer 1s you like best and stick with Sneaker News for word on the US release.

Nike Basketball’s ’20 Years’ retrospective clued us in on the Nike co-founder’s impact during Eric Avar’s design for the Air Hyperflight, and now here’s another way of examining “What would Bill Bowerman do?”  The Nike Air Trainer 1 ‘BB51′ pack brings together two of Tinker Hatfield’s game-changing cross-trainers with premium leathers in elegant colors to celebrate a man without whom you wouldn’t be reading these words.  ’BB51′ on the heels connects back to Bowerman’s Oregon roots with a reference to his classic UO Ducks football uniform number while the outrigger area’s diagonal striping evokes images of the ‘Vintage Box’ and all its past glories.  An impressive ode to one of this industry’s giants, the ‘BB51′ Air Trainer 1s are going on sale at Tier Zero retailers in Asia like Kasina on Saturday, August 4th, so check back with Sneaker News for US release info and check out some new images in the meantime.
