2016 proved to be quite a spectacular year for the Air Jordan 12. Apparently, this prompted Jordan Brand to draw inspiration from the twelfth Air Jordan model for a brand new trainer that they ended up dubbing the Trainer Prime. Jordan Brand designed this trainer to have uppers made up of breathable mesh, while also featuring Dynamic Flywire to offer the wearer’s feet a snug fit. The trainer was also designed to be equipped with Flight Flex groove outsoles and some Flywire detailing. Following its debut in December 2016 and its release in a few other colorways, the Jordan Trainer Prime has become available in two brand new colorways.
It is obvious that Jordan Brand drew inspiration from the Air Jordan 12 for the Jordan Trainer Prime. However, January’s Jordan releases 2017 even included three colorways of the Jordan Trainer Prime that were directly inspired by popular Air Jordan 12 iterations. One of those three Jordan Trainer Prime colorways directly drew inspiration from the Air Jordan 12 “Obsidian,” one was inspired by the “Taxi” and the third one was inspired by the Air Jordan 12 “Gym Red.”. Even one of the two upcoming Jordan Trainer Prime renditions appears to be drawing inspiration from one of the most iconic Air Jordan 12 colorways.
The first upcoming Jordan Trainer Prime colorway is simply a “Triple Black” iteration so it is dressed up completely in Black from top to bottom. As for the second one, in case sneakerheads mistook it for the Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game,” that is because it is the source of inspiration behind this other Trainer Prime colorway. Thus, its uppers are dressed up in the same combination of Black and Gym Red, with the same matching color blocking as the “Flu Game.”
The Jordan Trainer Prime is a new style is heavily inspired by the Air Jordan 12 and its recent colorways have also taken cues from the sneaker’s more popular renditions. For this summer, the sneaker features the classic Flu Game theme with black covering its mesh upper in addition to gym red overlays on the mudguard and Lunarlon cushioned sole. Jumpman branding on the heel and more red accents throughout cap off the bold two-tone look altogether. Both of these Jordan Trainer Prime colorways have already joined the recent Air Jordan releases 2017, so sneakerheads may cop a pair of each at a price of $110.
