The Air Trainer 1 had a gigantic effect on the world of sneakers when it was first released. The idea of a forefoot velcro strap and a truly innovative colorblocking design made the shoe an instant hit. It seems that with the many retro releases from Nike’s vaults, this model has been somewhat overlooked. While the Air Max 1, 90, and 97 stay in Nike’s constant rotation, the Air Trainer 1 is a retro model that hasn’t gotten the love many sneaker fans may feel it deserves. Well, with these two European releases, many will get their wish of new colorways, as there are two to look forward to. The first is a rather direct look at a colorway that looks similar to one of the OG versions. A white upper and midsole contrasts with a slight hint of blue on the eyelets and outsole while grey hits the forefoot, strap, and swoosh. The other model uses nylon and leather and features a black on black upper with hints of neon on the swoosh outline, strap, eyelet, and brand embroidery on the heel. If you’re stateside, you won’t be able to grab these yet, but euro retailers like Schuch-You has these available now.
