Over the years Nike has had a variety of different boxes. From pink for Nike SB, to large silver for Jordan Brand, there has been tons of variety in the design of their sneaker boxes. But the box that many longtime #sneakerholics search for are the packages in slim orange and grey bottoms. Paying homage to the past we saw a sneaker model based off a classic in its own right, the Trainer 1 .

The Trainer 1 took on the properties of the vintage box to the fullest. Nike covered the upper in nearly all orange, seen in the form of three different materials, premium suede, nubuck and ballistic mesh. Contrasting with the bright orange bits are small hits of the white and grey just like the lower half of the box. These bits including the branding on the Swoosh, heel and tongue which also had their motto “Just Do It” added. The midsole featured the two-toned grey striping mimicking the look of the box perfectly. The only thing missing from this special “vintage box” look was a special orange/grey box to complete the look.

How many of these sneaker boxes are a part of your sneaker collection?
