Fast from the past…
The Nike Air Zoom Talaria’s debut forever changed the idea of a how a running shoe should perform. Originally released in 1997, it’s still widely regarded as the best ride in road running.
As the first shoe to feature visible Zoom Air and introduce flex grooved outsoles, it continues to inspire to designs. Elite runner observations aligned with the mind of Nike’s foremost sneaker designer, Tinker Hatfield, led to the production of a shoe that redefined running shoe expectations. Constructed with tooling that bounces back upon immediate impact, absorbs shock and moves naturally in the forefoot without sacrificing stability or traction, the iconic silhouette’s innovative details have since become mainstays. To pay homage to a design ahead of its time, Nike Lab is reissuing, with precise, slight modern updates, the running icon through a sports style lens.
