The lasting memories of the Nike Air SC Trainer High

Like many retro sneakers, the Bo Jackson endorsed sneaker, the Air SC Trainer High, brings back many memories. This is reflected in the different colorways of the shoes. A lot of customers express their admiration towards the throwback colors of the shoe.

  • Atlanta Olympics colorway - The summer of 1996 in Atlanta, wherein some of the greatest athletes ignited an immense sense of pride, is relived. Nike dresses the shoe in fitting tones: a green finish with luxurious golden accents and a graphic print seen through the translucent outsole.
  • Alabama colorway - This is an exclusive colorway that celebrates the storied Alabama football program. It has a grey elephant print, an homage to the mascot, wrapping around the white leather upper. Black and crimson red accents complement it. Finally, the Alabama "A" logo appears on the tongue.
  • Kansas City Royals colorway - Another colorway pays tribute to Bo Jackson's baseball roots. It is inspired by the Royals' colors: white, metallic platinum, and hyper cobalt colorway.
  • Auburn colorway - The Nike Air Trainer AC Auburn colorway is tied to Bo's time at the University of Auburn. This is where he won the Heisman Trophy in 1985.
