Birthed out of the necessity for a multifunctional shoe that breathed individual style and function. Hatfield’s Nike Air Trainer 1 was one that satisfied his own imagination – curating a sneaker that would serve as inaugural cross-trainer at the gym. Hallmarked for its extroverted colour iterations, stabilised lateral outrigger and a lockdown feel, occupying a retail space between the quintessential b-ball fit and runner – truly unmistakable and rebellious in nature solidifying its cult-like status amongst many different people. From all kinds of crafts, interests and walks of life – building a unique synergy between gym goers, tennis court enthusiasts, b-ball players and runners.
Over the years, the Nike Air Trainer has boasted a lengthy roster of eclectic collabs. I am sure you’ll remember the legendary and hi-vis accented ‘112’ pack with DJ Clark Kent, the Fragment open/chino iteration to the early HUF ‘Gold Digger’ collab – it is a trainer that never fails to make a stylistic impression.
The latest Nike Air Trainer gets the ‘Light Smoke Grey/ Honeydew’ upgrade. Opting for a synthetic leather upper coated in a mixed tonal hue of grey and blues, while accents of ‘Honeydew’ complements the collar, Swoosh branding and midsole. Airy mesh underlays on the sidewalls and perforations on the toe vamp keeps things breathable paired with iridescent detailing throughout.
A signature midfoot strap is situated across the lace chamber – ensuring a snug and customisable fit. What’s more, a plush insole unit delivers unrivalled cushioning and a lateral outrigger enhances performance. Underfoot, the rubber outsole features multi-directional tread – the durable must-have this season.
