Feast Your Eyes on the Nike Air Trainer SC High ‘Abalone’
Nike are getting a little fancy with their latest Air Trainer SC High, taking inspiration from iridescent abalone shells.
Made famous by Bo Jackson, the Air Trainer SC is an intermittent addition to the Swoosh’s retro cross-training lineup, having seen a smattering of colourways over the last few years.
Now they’re getting a fresh minty do-over. But really, it’s that Swoosh we’re looking at.
The oil-slick effect, which in nature arises from Bragg refraction of light through the shell’s layers, is rendered faithfully – if synthetically – on the midfoot branding and tongue tab. A crisp white perforated leather upper lets the colourful details shine.
Down below, a translucent cool mint outsole houses an Air bag for more cross-training bounce.
No solid release date on these yet, but keep your eyes out for a drop sometime soon.
