Bo Jackson was a bad, bad man, known for his freakish feats on the football field and baseball diamond. Nike taps into the former two-sport star’s baseball history for the Air Trainer SC High ‘Broken Bats.’
Very straightforward here since the model’s commonly associated with Bo. Done in a mostly white upper accented by a royal blue, the highlights include the use of translucent soles, a wood-grain graphic wrapping the shoe in silver and rounded off with his Kansas City jersey number 16 on the heel.
The best detail may be the smallest as a bat-snapping Bo’s seen on the tongue, a play on Jackson’s propensity for snapping his hitting stick like a toothpick. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a 8-bit Bo, aka one of the greatest sports gaming characters of all-time, since the pixelated player also appeared on the Air Trainer II LE release in 2009.
Expect the ‘Broken Bats’ to arrive in stores around late March or early April.
