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.

Moving from sportswear to skate, Cincinnati’s UNheardof and customizer SBTG are raffling off bespoke Nike SB Dunk Low “Nasty Boys” to provide meals to Cincinnati-area emergency room workers.
