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!
