The Nike Air Zoom Talaria is coming back, as promised by the shoe's designer Tinker Hatfield.
In a message that can be heard by calling 1-800-250-2652 (800-023-4844 for readers in the UK), Hatfield talks about designing the shoe and its planned return this month.
"Back in 1997, I designed a shoe for runners rather than people who merely run—big difference," Hatfield says. "It was a hard shoe to develop and my original design ended up not being technically possible. It did however introduce full-length, bottom-loaded Zoom technology and flex grooves. I'm happy to say it went on to be regarded as one of the best rides in road running. So I'm both excited and proud to be the first to announce that NikeLab will bring back some from fast from the past."
Hatfield goes on to say that the Talaria reissue will happen on March 31, 2016.
No full images of the 2016 version are available yet, but Hatfield does say that it's been remixed.
Talaria fans will recall Sole Collector's own tribute to the shoe via the Nike Zoom Revis.
