Excerpt from Sneaker Freaker online feature:
In the beginning...
1987 is where it all began. Nike saw a hole in their product line and their plans for world domination. A growing army of fitness fanatics were filling their weeks with an ever increasing list of activities, from weight training to raquetball and jogging. They needed an all purpose shoe, equally at home on the aerobics mat, the treadmill or the court. In one of his broadest strokes of inspiration, Tinker Hatfield and his team combined to produce the Air Trainer High and Low.
The design’s flexible forefoot and soft leather upper were teamed with a full length air unit providing ample cushioning for running or pounding out aerobics. The b’ball styled sole with a flared outrigger combined with the forefoot strap to provide the stability needed for court sports and lifting. Football and baseball star Bo Jackson endorsed the shoe for Nike and it was so versatile it was even seen on pro tennis players like John MacEnroe and brash teenage sensation, Andre Agassi.
In short it was HOT!
