UPDATE: Nike's have gone heavy with the golden glitz lately, the next gilded retro is the Air Zoom Talaria which will be dropping on the SNKRS page of NDC on September 15. get up close and personal with some details up top, get ready for the gold rush.
When it released in the mid 90s, Nike’s Talaria bucked trends by concealing its Air unit and minimising its colour options. In 2016, however, even the Talaria has been going for gold with a few Olympic-inspired colourways. The next in line is surely a nod to the piles of precious metals the teams will be taking home after the conclusion of the Rio games, with its golden accents set among a black build. By night the metallic sections glow with 3M reflective properties to keep you safe from harm.
We don’t have an exact release date for the Nike Air Zoom Talaria ‘Black/Metallic Gold’ just yet but we’ll keep you posted.
