BO KNOWS CROSS-TRAINING. BO KNOWS HORSE RACING?
Some athletes allow their sport to define them, but others define their sport. Bo Jackson, the two-sport marvel, and arguably, the greatest pure athlete of all time, fits the latter. His ability couldn’t be contained to one arena. Rather, he performed on both, the gridiron and the diamond, popularizing cross-training in the process by sporting the legendary Air Trainer SC and follow-up models.
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 colors 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.
