Also part of the collection is the shoe that defined cross training, the Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Air Trainer 1 Premium. Originally released in 1987, the Air Trainer 1 revolutionized sport pairing a basketball-style upper with a running-inspired outsole and enhanced Nike Air cushioning. The shoe found favor in the gym, on the road, and famously on the tennis court. Hatfield’s game-changer marched in step with superstar athletes and style leaders. With a new all-over iridescent silver look, the Nike Air Trainer 1 shines on as a true icon of training.
The legacy of Nike training is further remembered in the Nike Knows collection by a full complement of timeless Nike trainers. In 1994, the Air Trainer Max ’94 featured an innovative neoprene sleeve for support and cushioning through a pioneering bubble Air-Sole unit. These shoes made an impact between the hash marks. The athletes who wore them achieved epic feats. In turn, they inspired a new generation of athletes striving to create their own legend.The crossover appeal of training is represented in the Nike Knows collection by the Nike Zoom Meriwether Posite and Nike Sky High Premium. The Nike Zoom Meriwether Posite melds the lightweight responsiveness of a trainer with the protection of a boot. A metallic silver Nike Sky High Premium, a perfect balance of sport and style, completes the set.
The Bo Knows tee—a tribute to the godfather of training—along with the Nike Futura Destroyer Jacket, Nike Futura Tech Fleece Crew, and Nike Futura Snapback capture the spirit of training and football with contemporary style. The Tech Fleece Crew updates an iconic Nike sportswear silhouette with evolved fit and feel, offering increased range of motion and lighter weight warmth than its predecessor. Tying together technology and tradition, the Nike Futura Destroyer delivers maximum warmth through a thermo-insulated body.
