Apparently legendary baseball player Bo Jackson was such a beast that his raw power could not be contained within one sport. That’s why Nike has chosen to honour the fact with the Air Trainer III Premium Bo Knows Horse Racing. Apart from breaking hats over his head and knocking balls out of the park, Mr. Jackson was partial to the sport of horse racing as well. The official word is as follows:
“Now, one of Jackson’s iconic cross-training silhouettes breathes new life with the forthcoming Air Trainer 3 PRM. When he was balancing sports, it was often said that his athletic prowess knew no bounds. Classic Bo Knows spots depicted him surfing, playing cricket, and, yes, competitive horse racing. The Air Trainer 3 PRM sources design inspiration from these same ads, repurposing the colours of Jackson’s jockey outfit. The theme is kept up with two pixelated logos on the tongue and heel; one picturing a horse and jockey duo and the other depicting his now-retired collegiate number”.
The Nike Air Trainer III Premium Bo Knows Horse Racing will launch Friday 16th May 2014 at 09:00 BST on www.urbanindustry.co.uk
