Bo Jackson was one of those rare athletes that could essentially dominate any sport he tried his hand at. The Nike Air Trainer SC II is his signature shoe, and in this “Faded Olive” colorway, it seems like a statement of also dominating the outdoors. Celebrating Bo’s love for archery (and we’re serious here), the mid-top sneaker comes in a faded olive colorway with a black and gum outer sole. The upper also sports 8-bit video game inspired pixelated versions of both tiger and woodland camo, with the former a nod to Bo’s collegiate alma mater. To finish it off, a large digital “34” is embroidered on the heel.

Draped in a black-on-black colorway dubbed “Blackout”, the sneaker is also outfitted with workboot-style lace rings and a chunkier outsole.

The Nike Huarache platform was one of Nike’s earliest attempts to give athletes exactly what they need to perform and nothing more. Designed under the lens of reduction, and continually improving on that mentality over the years, the minimalist approach inspired a new generation of footwear designers that believe in stripping products to the necessary components for elite performance. Twenty-three years after the debut of the Air Huarache, Nike Sportswear set out to create a cross-training version of the sneaker. The OG colorway of the Nike Air Trainer Huarache features a white leather base with accents in Dark Emerald, Black and Medium Berry throughout, including the berry-colored translucent midfoot strap.

The Nike Air Trainer Huarache Premium features a red-based full suede upper with black accents, a speckled midsole and full translucent outsole.

Under the lens of reduction and minimalism, the Nike Air Trainer Huarache Premium is not only well-considered but aesthetically beautiful as well.

Bo Jackson is a two-sport marvel, performing on a high-level on both the gridiron and the diamond. As one of the greatest pure athletes of all-time, he popularized cross-training in the process by sporting the Nike Air Trainer SC in addition to follow-up models. Classic “Bo Knows” campaigns depicted Jackson partaking in a multitude of athletic arenas such as surfing, cricket and even horse racing. Bo Jackson knew no bounds and exemplifies how you own it.
The Nike Air Trainer SC III “Bo Knows Horse Racing” sources inspiration from those archives, pulling the colors of Jackson’s jockey outfit colorway into the design of the shoe. A pixelated logo of a horse and jockey duo are present on the tongue, while another logo on the heel depicts his now-retired collegiate jersey number.
