Ahead of Super Bowl XLVIII, Nike will celebrate its training legacy with a collection of footwear inspired by its golden era. One of the shoes in the collection, dubbed ‘Nike Knows,’ is the Air Trainer Max ’94.

In 1994, the Air Trainer Max ’94 debuted with an innovative neoprene sleeve for support and cushioning through a bubble Air unit. For ‘Nike Knows,’ the shoe has been updated with a modern black upper, graphic printed overlays and iridescent detailing on the tongue tab, Swoosh logos and heelstay. Below sits an icy translucent rubber outsole.

These Nike training shoes will launch Monday, January 27 for $150. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all release information and updates.

Another retro arrival just in time for the weekend is the latest colorway of the Nike Air Trainer Max 2 94. A decedent of sneakers like the Nike Air Trainer Huarache and the Air Trainer SC, Max Air cushioning in the heel set the Trainer Max 94 apart form the rest back in the day.

Considering the last time we saw the Air Trainer Max 2 94 release in multiple colorways was 2007, this popular combination featuring Dark Pine and Bright Kiwi accents will be a must have for many sneaker collectors. The white outer “cage” provides some contrasting pop to the Dark Pine sockliner, and Bright Kiwi does the same from the inside of the Max Air cushioning in the heel.

Last week we saw the arrival of the latest retro version of the Nike Air Trainer Max 2 from 1994. Although it hasn’t been around as a retro in a number of years, the Trainer Max 2 made its place in the hearts of collectors long before that and is a welcome return for any Nike Training fans or aficionados.

Aside from the severed side panel and exaggerated Air Max bubble in the heel, the Trainer Max 2 had one iconic logo that seemed to help it burn its way into the memories of sneaker collectors, the Air Max 2 logo. This week’s wallpaper captures that unforgettable logo perfectly and should find its way onto the backgrounds of desktops all over.

After seeing the Air Trainer SC II, now another iconic shoe from Nike Training is making its return this spring as part of the “Uniform of Summer” releases. The Nike Air Trainer Max 2 from 1994 hasn’t been released as a Retro model for a almost five years now, and well, the last time with the Radiant Green and Bright Pink accents, the colorways weren’t exactly everyone’s taste.

This summer the Nike Air Trainer Max 2 ’94 will return in a handful of colorways, and thankfully, they’re all on par with the launch colorway you see here. Of course, the combination of white, black and varsity red is timeless and work well when placed on a shoe that stirs of memories of the mid-’90s when players like Charles Barkley and Chris Webber were carrying the Nike name into the “Uptempo” era that came from designs like the Air Trainer Max 2 ’94 that you see here.

Not long ago one of the popular Nike Training models from the past returned again, the Nike Air Trainer Max 91. Looking ahead to the future another timeless style from Nike Training will be making its way back to Eastbay, and probably into your collection shortly thereafter. The Nike Air Trainer Max 94 in one of its most memorable colorways will arrive in the spring of 2011.

Can you recall which athletes wore this model throughout the mid-nineties?

Hopefully this week’s Eastbay Photo of the Week will hold you over until they arrive, and for those that want to stare a little longer a link to wallpaper sized image is below.
