Nike Trainer 1 to help athletes prepare & perform better in sport

Nike, with Olympic gold medal decathlete Bryan Clay and All-Pro football players Adrian Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald and Troy Polamalu, and NBA All-Stars Brandon Roy and Amar'e Stoudemire introduced the Nike Trainer 1, an innovative new lightweight training shoe that fuses Nike's rich training heritage with the latest innovation and design technology.

Inspired by the popular Nike Air Trainer worn by world-class athletes Bo Jackson and John McEnroe, who ignited the athletic training boom 20 years ago, the new Nike Trainer 1 was designed to provide today's athletes with lightweight comfort and support as they prepare for competition.

“The Nike Trainer 1 will help athletes prepare and perform better in their sport,” said Kris Aman, Vice President and General Manager of Nike Athletic Training. “To create this shoe, we've taken the very best from our rich training heritage and combined it with new innovations and insights from today's best athletes.”

Bo Jackson and John McEnroe made the original Nike Air Trainer famous in the late '80s – Jackson through the cross-training preparation that helped him excel in both professional baseball and football, and McEnroe by donning the Nike Air Trainer on-court during his heyday.

To address the needs of athletes and the demands of today's dynamic training, the Nike Trainer 1 features Nike DiamondFLX, a patent-pending outsole system that provides flexibility and support through multi-directional movement – ideal for any training regimen.

“The Nike Trainer 1's are extremely comfortable and the flexibility is awesome,” said NFL All-Pro player Adrian Peterson. “I have already started wearing them for my training drills and for weight room workouts. It's an amazing performance shoe that will give me an edge on the playing field.”

A lightweight upper, with midfoot and forefoot overlays connected to the lacing system, works with an inner Dynamic Fit sleeve to provide a secure, glove-like fit and the lock-down support a foot needs. The mid-sole also features a Nike Max Air unit in the heel to provide impact protection and comfort.

As part of the launch event in Southern California, Nike athletes Larry Fitzgerald, Adrian Peterson, Troy Polamalu, Brandon Roy, Amar'e Stoudemire, Bryan Clay and Matt James (Pro Trainer) led more than 50 local Southern California youth from all sports in a comprehensive training workout.
