Nike‘s cross-training product from the late ’80s-early ’90s is the stuff of legend, and now the Air Cross Trainer 3 Low — a silhouette from deep in the Nike Sportswear archives — is set to make a return to market this spring. Originally released in 1990 and taking visual cues from Bo Jackson‘s famous Air Trainer SC, the Air Cross Trainer 3 Low is a polymathic piece of footwear that was crafted for everything from turf fields to weight rooms and basketball courts.
Two retro colorways will kick off the Air Cross Trainer 3 Low’s rollout: one embellished with black and turquoise, the other accented by sport blue, black and soft gray. Each uses a subtle and supple white leather base, then disperses its secondary shades across tongues, midsoles, eyestays and branded hits.
This announcement follows up a January leak of two collaborative Supreme iterations. It’s quite possible that the Swoosh and Supreme may follow a collaborative template used in years past for the Air Max 98 and Air Max Tailwind IV: Supreme’s collaborative iteration drops first to gain acceptance and build anticipation, then in-line models follow in the ensuing weeks.
Official release dates and pricing information have yet to be divulged, but the Air Cross Trainer Low 3 will release on the Nike webstore later this spring.
