As we’ve said in previous Bo Jackson news, Nike will pay homage to Bo Jackson this Fall by re-releasing his signature shoe in original colors and footwear inspired by his career.
For those of you that don’t know, Bo Jackson played both pro football (Oakland Raiders) and baseball (Kansas City Royals). Just like Deion “Primetime” Sanders, Bo “Break a bat over knee” Jackson also had a contract with Nike in the early 90’s. “Bo Knows” is the most notable advertising campaign out of the series, and is still one of Nike’s best ads to date.
Alongside from Bo’s signature shoe, Trainer SC High, Nike will drop a Blazer Hi which is inspired by the Kansas City Royals. We can’t leave out the fact that Nike also took inspiration from the video game, Tecmo Bowl. Check out the pixelated print along the upper. If that doesn’t ring a bell, peep the pixelated baseball Bo on the tongue after the jump. Combine all those features and you got yourself a Bo Jackson “KC Royals” Tecmo Bo Blazer Hi.
Expect to see these Blazer Hi’s in stores this Fall.
