If you’re in NYC for CMJ and need a break from the music, Nike’s hosting “Bo Jackson ALL For One” event. Hell, I’d go to this before I hit the music events mainly because Bo’s one of my favorite athletes of all-time, the Trainer 1.2 is absolutely one of the better shoes Nike’s produced recently and I’m one of those cats who loves to hear the stories © MC Shan. Today, all three elements combine as Bo makes an appearance to celebrate the athletes, designs, and art of the Trainer 1.2 at NTNY.
“Bo Jackson, former dual-sport standout and face of the original training shoe, the Air Trainer 1, will discuss the inspiration behind the latest edition of the Trainer 1.2 Friday, October 22, 2010 at 6:00 p.m. at Niketown New York with 125 high school athletes and sneaker enthusiasts. CBS sports commentator Gus Johnson will be on hand to emcee the event.
“Fans from around the city have a chance to participate in a Q&A with Bo and purchase one of eleven limited edition sets from the Trainer 1.2 “All for One” pack. Based on inspirations from various artists, the pack includes designs for athletes Bo Jackson, Bryan Clay, Larry Fitzerald, Manny Pacquiao, Adrian Peterson, Troy Polamalu, Albert Pujols, Cristiano Ronaldo, Brandon Roy and Amar’e Stoundemire. Fans who cannot attend will have the opportunity to view the Q&A live on Facebook at facebook.com/usnikefootball.”
