Nike Sportswear celebrates their cross-training roots with a release of the iconic Air Max Pillar in a colorway inspired by Bo Jackson's days with the Raiders. 

And although the Air Max Pillar was never actually laced up by Bo, the release of this Raiders colorway comes at a perfect time alongside yesterday's premier of "You don't know Bo" as part of ESPN's on-going 30 for 30 film series. Introduced a few years after Jackson's injury shortened career, the Air Max Pillar was engineered to be Nike's most innovative shoe yet in a cross-training category that came to life thanks to the man's gamechanging multi-sport talents.

The Air Max Pilar returns untouched, complete with their boldly designed upper and classic full-length Air Max unit. Seen in full detail below, the Oakland Raiders-inspired Nike Air Max Pillar by Nike Sportswear is now available via NikeStore.
