The Nike Trainer 1.2 Mid “Legends Pack” is a set of four shoes that not only pay tribute to four legends of the game of baseball, but also feature several eye-catching and well-coordinated colorways. Players that are commemorated include past legends (Nolan Ryan and Bo Jackson), recently retired (Ken Griffey Jr.), and currently active players (Albert Pujols).
On the pair paying tribute to Nolan Ryan, obsidian, white and red are used throughout the shoe to pay tribute to the team he’s most associated with, The Texas Rangers. The date 5/1/91 is also printed on the shoe to mark the date he threw his legendary 7th no-hitter. Bo Jackson’s pair features a colorway that uses tones of the Kansas City Royals. The number ‘448’ is also branded on the sneaker to mark the 448 foot home run Bo Hit in the 1989 MLB All-Star Game. The third pair pays tribute to recently retired and future hall-of-famer Ken Griffey Jr. The famous ‘600’ logo is combined with the colors of the Seattle Mariners to pay tribute to the achievements Ken Griffey Jr. accomplished and the team he will always be associated with. The fifth and final pair features the red and white of the St. Louis Cardinal’s Albert Pujols. In addition, “The Machine” is printed on the shoe to commemorate the machine-like performances of Albert Pujols. As mentioned above, these 4 pairs are now available through eastbay.
