Perhaps because of his original training as an architect, Tinker Hatfield’s contrarian design senses have helped Nike to create a number of hugely popular models. One example was the original Nike Air Trainer SC “Medicine Ball” that launched in 1988. Also known as the Nike Air Trainer III, Hatfield thought to refer the common gym equipment by the addition of brown leather paneling on the shoe, despite the common marketing notion at the time that brown athletic footwear don’t sell. The “Medicine Ball” colorway proved the critiques wrong and was subsequently re-introduced in various forms, including these 2014 Nike Air Trainer Max 360 2. In a rich (and at times “clashing”) color schemes of White, Navy and Pecan Brown, the Nike Air Trainer Max 360 2, itself a Chimera of sorts, will be available starting next month as part of Nike Sportswear Spring 2014 Collection.
