What's up NT,
I'm curious to know whether Nike has any plans on retroing the air trainer sc in orange and purple? 99% of the cw that they put out are straight garbage and I can't figure out why these haven't dropped yet. I'm sure both sneakerheads and the general pop would scoop these up in a minute. What's going on?

correct me if im wrong, but i thought this shoe was based on the auburn tigers colors? so purple just doesnt make sense. it is close to being purple i guess. 1 in every 2 people call it orange and purple.

There was a retro release of this colorway 10 years ago.

I pray to God they get these right again. Something tells me they'll have faux suede on the upper and the colors will be off like Chlorophyll's were this year. The height of the recent SC's seem to be lower than I remember also. But hey, the 25 & older crowd will eat these up. Count me in!

You know what, I wanted to say that they are blue, but I always viewed them as purple. On Nore's "I Love My Live", he says "used to cop the Jordans and the Filas too, yo I love the Bo Jackson's the orange and blue." Whatever the case is, these joints are mad hot, and they were one of the only fresh pair of kicks I had (along with the black and silver Jordan 5s) growing up.

The color is NOT purple its royal blue, and here's pics of the pairs i had was going to keep them but the paint on the midsole of these things cracks like crazy (atleast on the 98 retro's) anyhow here's one of the two pairs ive owned over the years

Flint, I agree they were butchered a bit but some photos can be deceiving. Side by side they appear almost too similiar to one another, which is very ODD because seperately, one looks super bright and the other dark and dull. Together though..

Those old school OG colors had something in their chemical composition that made them BRIGHT even without a flash. The 99 retro pair can appear dark in different settings.

same shoe as above.

multi billion dollar nike needs to spend alittle more time on creating paints that have that certain luminascity.
...............................

any NTer pick these up? Suede Toebox #34 on back orginials.. So damn simple yet a single retro cannot be done correctly. trethousandGt posted the retro with just the swoosh in the back, which i guess is the best they could do.
