Nike Training has been making quite a comeback with shoes like the Trainer 1, Trainer 1.2 and Trainer SC 2010. They may have hit gold again with these upcoming releases.
Outdoors- and trail-inspired shoes have seen a big rise in popularity over the last year or so, and it seems that Nike Training might have timed it perfectly to introduce winterized versions of the Nike Trainer 1.2. Slightly more durable materials improve not only the endurance for the winter season, but also help to maintain foot temperatures, giving them the ability to handle the rain, snow and cold better than the standard-issue Trainer 1.2.
Look for these to become available at Eastbay soon.
EA Sports and Nike created a special makeup of the Nike Trainer 1.2 for former Florida Gator Tim Tebow. Tebow was chosen for the cover of EA’s NCAA Football 11 and to commemorate the honor, a Gators inspired colorway with Tim Tebow specific detailing and NCAA 11 labeling was created.

Building on the Trainer 1 that was launched in 2009, Nike Training has one upped themselves once again with this year’s updated Trainer 1.2+. The Trainer 1 itself is a great platform to start from, but the 1.2+ receives a forefoot strap for increased lockdown that wasn’t available on the previous model. The Max Air Unit in the heel, full length Phylon midsole and Flywire that combine for a lightweight and versatile shoe whether you using it in the weight room doing squats or on the field doing speed training drills. In order to increase traction and durability from the previous model, a waffle tread pattern has been added to the heel area. A slightly more prominent toe guard area also increases durability.The 1.2+ also comes prepared to handle your Nike+ system also, so you can track your workouts through your iPod.
In all the Trainer 1.2+ takes an already impressive training shoe, and makes it even better. Nike has included the popular White/Black/Volt/Grey combination as part of the initial colorways, as well as the two other colorways seen below.
