NikeLab re-masters the 1997 running classic.
The history of Nike Zoom Air dates back to 1995, when the highly responsive cushioning technology made its debut in a variety of sport-specific shoes. Two years later, the Nike Air Zoom Talaria was born. Featuring flex grooves and a bottom-loaded, visible Zoom Air unit, it delivered a remarkable ride for runners, making it an instant favorite.
In homage to the groundbreaking design, NikeLab reissues the original version, albeit with slight updates. The suede overlays and breathable mesh upper return, as does the original outsole. However, modern materials in the midsole and sockliner deliver added comfort.
NikeLab will also release the Air Zoom Talaria in a pair of new colorways. Each features updated materials in the upper, such as ripstop and rugged woven overlays, to provide extra durability for everyday wear. Leather in the collar adds a touch of luxury.
