Before “athleisure” and “dad shoe” joined our everyday vernacular, the fitness boom of the 1980s birthed the idea of the cross trainer. With it, Nike unleashed a string of bold, industry-defining designs suited for wear in the weight room, on the court and across turf. An unintended, but swiftly realized, product of those arresting designs was a versatile adoption by the era’s musical subcultures.
Introduced in 1990, the Nike Air Cross Trainer 3 Low extends aesthetic cues from the Air Trainer SC High. It was defined by a subtle upper color scheme, accented by pops of color on the tongue and midsole — a characteristic that remains in its 2020 version. This shoe maintains a subdued tech vibe suitable for a range of daily activities.
Take a better look at the Air Cross Trainer 3 Lows below, and you can find the “Neptune Green” pair available on Footlocker.com, while both will soon release on Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $120 USD.
