Bo Knows the Upcoming Nike Air Trainer SC High “Raiders”Published:
September 04, 2022
Vincent “Bo” Jackson is often regarded as the greatest athlete to ever walk planet earth. At Auburn University, Bo became a decorated three-sport athlete. This led the Los Angeles Raiders to draft him first overall in the 1986 NFL Draft. That’s not all, though. That same year, Bo was drafted by the MLB’s Kansas City Royals. He played for both teams simultaneously, making him one of the only athletes to ever play two professional sports at the same time.
Bo was larger than life during his heyday, making it no surprise as to why he was the face of Nike’s Air SC Trainer High campaign in 1990. The cross-training silhouette (originally called the Nike Air SC Trainer III) was one of the most popular sneakers in the market upon its release. And because of its association to Bo Jackson, it has been ever since.
The model is perhaps best known in its OG “Auburn” form, but this month, Nike is set to rerelease the Air SC Trainer High in a scheme that nods to Bo’s tenure with the Raiders.
The upcoming Nike Air SC Trainer High “Raiders” features a perforated-leather upper done in black, with matching nubuck and smooth-leather overlays. Lateral side panels come covered in light-grey Swoosh overlays, as well as similarly colored midfoot straps, which also grace the medial sides. Additional branding includes bold “Nike” lettering on the tongues and the heels.
Moving towards the sole, you’ll find white foam midsoles which house visible Max Air units in the heels. The colorway is complete with milky, semi-translucent rubber outsoles.
Want a pair? They’ll be available on DTLR.com and DTLR stores on September 11th in men’s and grade-school sizing.
