After the Zoom Jet Turf '97 made a comeback in a number of colorways this year, many of us were hoping for a return of its older brother, the Zoom Turf '96, as well.  Our hopes have been answered, as the classic turf model made famous by Barry Sanders appears to be making a comeback in a number of OG and new colorways in 2014. 

When we saw a preview of the Oregon Ducks version last month, we assumed it wouldn't be the only colorway to return.  Now we do indeed get a look at few more upcoming options for the Zoom Turf, including two of its original colorways in Barry's white/blue/grey Lions look and the black/white/grey version.  Brand new looks for the Zoom Turf include Volt/Freshwater and black/red colorways.

No official release date has been announced yet, but expect the Zoom Turf '96 to return in early 2014.  Stay tuned for exact release as they become available.  Are you happy to see another classic trainer from Nike return?
