The Nike Cross Trainer was designed as the ultimate shoe for the multi-dimensional, dual-sport athlete. Bo Jackson was a force in two sports that demanded different sets of athletic prowess, and he was consequently viewed as the prototypical cross-trainer. Nike and Bo Jackson teamed up to market Cross Training shoes to a generation in which universal sport culture was growing; After the wide success of the Nike Air Trainer 1 and the Nike Trainer SC (Strength Conditioning), Cross Trainers created a considerable amount of momentum for Nike, as other prominent athletes such as Barry Sanders and Jerry Rice were brought onto the Nike Cross Training team.
