When he was off the court, Michael Jordan regularly rotated Nike’s best footwear on a frequent basis. In 1987, right at the time of the release of several iconic Nike shoes, MJ favorited the Air Trainer 1 ‘Chlorophyll’ on a regular basis. Like we saw on the Air Jordan Retro 6 that was released back at the beginning of October, the colorway was inspired by some of Tinkers most famous works that were personal favorites of none other than Michael Jordan himself. Tinker Hatfield’s game-changing Nike Trainer 1, which revolutionized cross-training, introduced the world to Chlorophyll color schemes in 1988.
This next release pays homage to that connection as well as Tinker Hatfield. It dons the original color palette of White, Grey, Black, and Chlorophyll Green that really takes on that Trainer 1 vibe. This pair features a Grey upper that is complimented by Black elephant print and Green accents that really make the sneaker pop. The chlorophyll accents are seen on the hang tag, lower and upper eyelets, and the lining of the tongue.
