The Nike Air Trainer 1 is back. The iconic multi-sport training shoe is gearing up to celebrate its thirty-fifth anniversary in 2022, and if we know Nike, they have big plans for the beloved model. Check out the new Air Trainer 1 Utility “Light Smoke Grey” look, coming soon.

Nike’s Air Trainer 1 Utility appears to be the brand’s first major project featuring the legendary sneaker that turns thirty-five this year. Debuted in 1987, alongside other Nike greats like the Air Max 1, the Air Trainer 1 still stands today as one of the greatest training sneakers of all time, now worn as a style statement rather than a gym-ready silhouette. So, to kick off the Air Trainer’s monumental anniversary in 2022, Nike has unveiled their new ‘Utility’ iteration, which brings a wild redesign to the AT1 through new 3M reflective overlays and rugged, outdoor-ready materials. Already seen in a few colorways, this “Light Smoke Grey” version joins the ranks today, decorating the refined silhouette in shades of grey, brown, and mauve.


Nike’s upcoming remixed version of the classic Air Trainer 1, which we expect to kick off the silhouette’s thirty-five-year-anniversary, has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to drop sometime early in 2022. The strapped-up “Light Smoke Grey” color scheme will likely drop from both Nike and select retailers, with a price tag of $140 or more attached. Check out Nike’s official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.

UPDATE 4/12/22: Nike’s “Light Smoke” colorway of the Air Trainer 1 Utility has been scheduled to release later this week, on April 14th, 2022. Pairs will be available from Nike’s SNKRS App for $150.
