Nike is paying major respect this summer to Bo Jackson with the re-release of many of the sneakers he wore through the years of training for his many sports. ?True, he only played professionally in baseball and football, but Bo knew no boundaries.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the famous Bo Knows campaign. ?One of the shoes brought out to celebrate Bo Jackson is the Nike Trainer II. ?Though we have seen this silhouette return to Nike SB, this is the first non-SB release of the shoe since it was first introduced in 1989. ?For the re-release, Nike is employing a creative concept of bringing the shoes back in Los Angeles Raiders colors (Bo played in LA, not Oakland) with a pixelized logo of Bo on the tongue from the classic video game Tecmo Bowl.
Look for the Nike Air Trainer II “Tecmo Bo’s” to release next month for $100.
