The iconic Nike Air Trainer 1 in its original "Chlorophyll" colorway is back. Initially released in 1987, the Air Trainer 1
is one of Tinker Hatifield's first sneaker designs. The story behind the first athletic cross-trainer ever created began when Hatfield was noticing people at his local gym carrying multiple shoes in their gym bag. He witnessed people do weight training in one pair shoes, then change shoes for cardio activities. So, Hatfield decided to create a sneaker that would excel in every facet of the workout regime. When Nike chose two-sport athlete Bo Jackson to endorse the Air Trainer 1 in commercials while participating in every sport under the sun, it was a perfect match. Famous tennis player John McEnroe even laced up the Air Trainer 1
. Simply put, it's a coveted Nike classic that's a must for any sneakerhead.

The Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski
has been released yet again and this time we get to grab the skateboard shoe in Pine Green/Sail. The suede upper is definitely noticeable in its gleaming green upper and the Sail accents really stand out. Seeing it up close and personal tho its the leather accents that really do the trick. Making a good thing even better the tonality and play on materials comes to head with the leather laces. To be more specific, pine green suede covers the majority of the base, while a sail-colored swoosh, along with shoelaces of the same color, offset the base's predominant color nicely. Lastly, a sail sole gives this Janoski skateboard shoe its finishing touches. This is a sneaker that is ideal for the summer season and for those of you who skate.
