Athletic legend starts in training. Nike‘s mission has always been to make athletes better. In turn, those athletes transcend sport and inspire fans to celebrate their style on the street.The Nike Knows collection is inspired by a golden age, a time when athletes were elevated to heights previously unknown and their legacy expanded well beyond the field. While winning was the core motive, swagger was a prerequisite. The dynamic personas of the era elevated a game into the game. Cross training was the new frontier. Home plate was where bats were broken.
And the end zone served as a testing ground for new dances. Nike Knows is a highlight reel of moments given to us by the legends of yesteryear and the future current athletes are creating everyday.Highlighting the Nike Knows collection is the Nike Lunar 180 Trainer SC merging modern construction with a classic silhouette. Retaining its essential DNA, the Nike Lunar 180 Trainer SC updates a 1990 classic with HyperFuse construction for lightweight support and breathability. A Nike 180 Air cushioning unit and the molded Lunarlon bevel instill attitude and give the tooling a fresh twist.
