More than two decades in the making, Nike’s Air Trainer SC II has finally returned this spring. Joining the Black/Varsity Red look that dropped earlier in the month is this OG-esque colorway that is a throwback to the style worn by Bo Jackson in the original commercials and print ads for the shoe. Minus a detail or two, this Air Trainer SC II features the subtly colored base and vibrant color pops that will leave you feeling like you’ve landed back in 1990.
This shoe pairs a perforated white full-grain leather upper with neutral grey overlays at the forefoot, toebox and upper heel, with dark grey working the cross-strap, quarter panel, Swoosh and lower heel. A neon green/yellow hue known as Citron loudly contrasts the look on the inner lining, tongue, upper lace tabs, heel branding, Air unit and outsole.
