The Nike SB Air Trainer 1, which transitioned into a Nike SB model, was originally the very first cross training shoe of all time. Somehow, the Air Trainer 1 returned in 2020, but did so completely under the radar. It only released at Nike SB accounts. We’re not sure why Nike made this a Nike SB accounts only release. All it did was prevent an absolutely awesome release from getting any mainstream love.
