History of Jordan Trunner LX High NRG

Initially released in 2000, the Jordan Trunner LX was one of the first off-court training shoes by the Jordan Brand. The kick took cues from the brand's past releases with recognizable design elements such as the braided upper that mimicked the Air Jordan 15's.

The introduction of the Jordan Trunner LX marked the branching out of the brand from the hoops world into the general athletic category to cater to all types of athletes. The kick was, however, recalled due to issues with the material used in the heel part of the shoe that would pop out and pose to be dangerous to wearers.

Years after Jordan reintroduced the Trunner LX along with a high-top version called the Jordan Trunner LX High. The high-top iteration, in particular, received all kinds of responses, some were in favor, but most were against. Despite the mixed reactions, Jordan decided to do an exclusive colorway release in Japan called the ‘NRG.'
