TEDxPortland x Nike Air Trainer 1

Each year, Nike and TEDxPortland unite for a collaborative sneaker, usually only available to the speakers, performers, and volunteers. The partners selected the Air Trainer 1 as their silhouette of choice this year, revamping the Mid iteration with thematic hues and details. Monochrome panels inform the upper, with grey suede at the midfoot, white leather across the heel, toe and medial side and black leather informing the rear panel and forefoot strap. TEDxPortland launched the limited models on April 27 at the Keller Auditorium where the talks were held. Proceeds benefitted attendee ticket scholarships for 2020’s event, which will be the 10th year of TEDxPortland.
