Nike Air Trainer 1 Mid Premium   Holiday 2012

1987 could be considered to be the greatest year for Nike in its history – with much of the credit going to Tinker Hatfield’s ‘Air’ Pack. One of the original five is the Air Trainer 1, which will also celebrate its 25th Anniversary this year by returning in the original Chlorophyll colorway that Jon McEnroe made so famous on the tennis courts; we already saw a return of the Chlorophyll as recent as 2008 as well as in 2010 as part of the Trainer Legacy Pack, but if you missed out on those, keep your radar locked in on the Holiday 2012 season as the Premium-grade Chlorophyll and new ‘Hazelnut’ colorway has been confirmed for a release at $110 a pop. Stay tuned for more on the Air Trainer 1 releases for this year, and let us know if the Chlorophyll Air Trainer 1 is a must-cop for you! via TSG

Haha, Wally was all over this even before the thread was made! smiley: tongue


But just based on that preliminary catalog pic, there might be some concerns Nike's just using the 2002/2008/2009 chassis, which some of you guys will know was different from the 2000 retro. Toebox, tongue, materials and more importantly, the fit... will need to keep an eye on those things. 

Rich ~ What are you, nuts!?  In the SC2's!?  Dude... clay~!  Oh that hurts!  Stuff doesn't come off!  HarTru right?

and I have a little more optimistic being that they are "Premium"  but as we all now sometimes the "Premium" doesn't necessarily mean that!

If Nike was smart they would send Wally a sample so he could tell them whats wrong and what's right...

This.

Hopefully these are similar in quality to the SC IIs.

I'm more concerned that by calling them premium they'll limit what shops get these. Make these a wide release GR and put a little bit of marketing behind them.

Yeah, Wally was nice enough to let some of us know before hand about the release of these. 

I can't get too excited about these though. Like some have mentioned Nike's definition of "Premium" varies widely. If its that same synthetic stuff used on the 2008 and 2010 then its a no thanks for me.

awe man, are they gonna do the toe-box with those big spaced-out holes
like they now put on the ATIII (ATSC)?

it's one the least favorite "updates" on the air trainers - changes the look

if they end up dropping with that toe-box...no cop
(pics disappoint because of this one factor - and i was on board even with sub-par quality concerns)
upset actually

Thanks Nike. Luckily classics like these don't seem to get the crazy amounts of hype so they should be an easy grab. Honestly, give me a pair or 2 of those McEnroes and they can keep EVERYTHING else.

Let's have a little faith in Nike. After all, the QS SCII's didn't have a Premium label and we all saw how those turned out-- some of the best Nike Retro quality in years. Maybe someone over there is actually putting their best effort in doing these right, or at least close to right!

ya, well - the sc II's had the same type of holes on the toe-box as the original

the widely spaced holes look like crap

can't believe i'm the only one that thinks it's a deal breaker
