Muhammad Ali. Kerri Strug. Michael Johnson. United States of America. The 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta were arguably the greatest of all-time, and now, Nike is celebrating the 20th Anniversary with a special make-up of the Air Trainer SC High.
Drawing it’s palette from the Atlanta games’ official logo, the shoe is styled in green leather and suede, complemented by gold hardware and white on the tongue and straps. Peach embroidery on the left tongue is a symbolic nod the host city, while the laurel wreath marks the insoles and heel. Laurel wreaths are placed on the heel to give it that Olympic feel, all while having the shoe sitting on top of a translucent sole speckled with colors from the vintage emblem. As a final touch, the translucent outsole reveals a multicolor confetti graphic.
While Nike hasn’t yet announced an official release date, the early word is that these will hit nike.com on July 19.
