After teasing us all at the end of last month, adidas Originals is back with the official announcement of the return of the Key Trainer, Keyshawn Johnson's signature training shoe. This classic mid-90's trainer from the Equipment and Feet You Wear lines was designed specially for 1996 #1 NFL draft pick Keyshawn Johnson and has since received a cult following by adidas EQT fans. Now it's back for the first time ever, dropping in its original colorway on April 5th at select adidas Originals retailers for $130.

Via adidas Originals:

As the 1996 #1 NFL Draft Pick, Keyshawn was a beast both on and off the field, famous for his phrase “just give me the damn ball”. Well-known for his confidence and tenacity, the Key Trainer pulls inspiration from Keyshawn’s larger than life personality and his rookie year team. Originally introduced for use on field, the Key Trainer returns for the streets.
