The Nike Air Trainer SC “Auburn” Is Back

feature image

The storied cross-training boom in sneakers was probably the most competitive time in the industry. At the turn of the 80s into the 90s, the brands were in an all-out arms race to maintain the power position in the ever-so-important category, giving consumers ample options while looking to multi-sport athletes for inspiration. In the long run, Nike came out on top thanks to the two-sport phenom Bo Jackson and the Air Trainer SC aka the Air Trainer SC III. Remembered for this orange/concord “Auburn” colorway (a nod to Bo’s college days), the Trainer SC marks that significant time in brand history and always seems to turn heads whenever it resurfaces for a release.

In 2022, it appears that Nike is indeed bringing back the Air Trainer SC “Auburn”. Official images of GS sizes have emerged, which pretty much confirms that adult mens pairs are on the way as well. Dropping for the first time since 2017, the Air Trainer SC seems to be intact with the OG based on the color-blocking, materials, and, construction. We’ll have to wait for an in-hand look to make those final judgements, but this is already good news for Trainer fans.

See the official images ahead and stay tuned for release details. In other important 90s Retro footwear, the Air Max Penny is returning in 2022 as well.
