Relaunch of the Nike Air Cross Trainer 3 Low

Before dad sneakers and athleisure footwear became popular, fitness was such a hit in the 80s that it led to cross-trainers' birth. This event guided the Swoosh brand to unleash products to suit people's needs at that time.

Among these silhouettes is the Nike Air Cross Trainer 3 Low that was introduced in 1990. It takes its aesthetic cues from Bo Jackson's Air Trainer SC High. As it was released again in 2020, it maintained its subtle upper color scheme with accents of popping colors on the tongue and midsole.

The Air Cross Trainer 3 Low in patriotic colorway

Among the many colorways in which the ACT 3 dropped, one of the most remarkable is its patriotic colorway. The "white" and "midnight navy" arrangement is perfect for the postponed Tokyo Olympics. The "university red" flair at the tongue of the shoe completes the patriotic palette.
