Nike has been on the cutting edge of training shoe design and innovation for over 20 years, and now to pay homage to their rich heritage, they have combined some of their classic design elements with new technological advancements to create a Trainer for the growing demands of today’s top athletes. Last week, Nike unveiled their eagerly anticipated new Nike Trainer 1 model at the Nike Knows Training Summit at UC Irvine in California. To spice up the event, Nike invited some of their biggest name athletes to answer some questions and to join some local students in a training workout. Several top performers in their respective sports like Adrian Peterson, Troy Polamalu, Amar’e Stoudemire, Brandon Roy, Bryan Clay and Matt James were on hand to join in the fun, and of course to show off their own personalized Trainer 1’s. Be sure to keep reading after the jump for an inside look at the event, the Nike Trainer 1 and a display of classic Nike Trainer models and ad campaigns. Via Freshness.
