In 1997 the Talaria zoomed into the hearts of runners the world over. Its bolstered upper and visible Air unit – combined with the piercing neon colourway it first came out in – made it hard to forget. As such, fans of the retro-runner were stoked on its 2016 return – when The OG colourway blazed its way back onto shelves. Now, Nike have provided a more subdued option for those who aren’t quite ready for tennis ball coloured kicks in the form of this toned down make-up.
The suede and mesh on the shoe are shrouded in deep black, while the midsole and tongue come in a slightly lighter lead grey. If you’re partial to a touch of exuberant neon, the Zoom sole still comes in the highlighter pinks and yellows the Talaria is known for.
The Nike Air Zoom Talaria in black is available now from Nike online.
