Nike, with Olympic gold medal decathlete Bryan Clay and All-Pro football players Adrian Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald and Troy Polamalu, and NBA All-Stars Brandon Roy and Amar’e Stoudemire today introduced the Nike Trainer 1, an innovative new lightweight training shoe that fuses Nike’s rich training heritage with the latest innovation and design technology.
Inspired by the popular Nike Air Trainer worn by world-class athletes Bo Jackson and John McEnroe, who ignited the athletic training boom 20 years ago, the new Nike Trainer 1 was designed to provide today’s athletes with lightweight comfort and support as they prepare for competition.
Bo Jackson and John McEnroe made the original Nike Air Trainer famous in the late ‘80s – Jackson through the cross-training preparation that helped him excel in both professional baseball and football, and McEnroe by donning the Nike Air Trainer on-court during his heyday.
To address the needs of athletes and the demands of today’s dynamic training, the Nike Trainer 1 features Nike DiamondFLX, a patent-pending outsole system that provides flexibility and support through multi-directional movement – ideal for any training regimen.
A lightweight upper, with midfoot and forefoot overlays connected to the lacing system, works with an inner Dynamic Fit sleeve to provide a secure, glove-like fit and the lock-down support a foot needs. The mid-sole also features a Nike Max Air unit in the heel to provide impact protection and comfort.
2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the Air Trainer line.
