Another classic combination from Jordan Brand with the Jordan Retro III “Chlorophyll” and its classic color combo that is very reminiscent of the Nike Trainer 1 that was made popular by John McEnroe back in 1986. A sneaker like the “Chlorophyll” Retro 3 comes with a ton of interesting history behind it. For starters the Trainer 1 was designed by none other than Tinker Hatfield himself and was given to John McEnroe as a bit of an accident by Nike without Tinker’s knowledge. The sneaker was so ahead of its time as it was designed to eliminate people having to switch sneakers during different workouts at the gym. Jordan was often seen off court lounging in a pair of Trainers which was almost considered the first all-purpose sneaker at the time. With Jordan being a fan of the Trainer line Jordan Brand combined the first trainer of them all and the first sneaker Tinker ever worked on for Jordan, the Jordan 3. The color scheme of the Retro III matches the Trainer 1 almost exactly with light grey dominating the shoe, black elephant leather to accent the toe box and black elephant leather wrapping around the heel. As with the Trainer 1 you have Chlorophyll green accents around the sneaker. The laces and tongue are white and any lettering is done in Chlorophyll green just like the Trainer 1.

-The Nike Trainer 1 was designed by Tinker Hatfield who joined the Jordan team starting with the Jordan 3

-The colorway on the Trainer 1 came from gym equipment, that color-way is now featured on the Jordan 3

-Jordan often wore Nike Trainers off court and became a fan of them, combining the OG Trainer 1 and the retro 3 is a combo of two of Jordan’s favorite sneakers from the late 80s
