UPDATE: Looks like this 'Olympic' take on the legendary Talaria has snuck out early. The Air Zoom runner is on Nike SNKRS right now and disappearing faster than Usain Bolt! Sprint on over to Nike SNKRS to bag your pair of these Dream Team kicks before they run out of stock.
2016 has been a godsend for fans of vintage Air Zoom runners. Both the Air Zoom Talaria and Air Zoom Spiridon made an expected return to store shelves to much rejoice from Swoosh devotees. With the OG eye-bleeding 'Neon Yellow' make-up of the Talaria out of the way, Nike have elected to keep the long-neglected late-90s runner in production and bless it with a fresh 'Olympic' colourway. Like other vintage Nike models receiving the on-trend treatment – this release embraces the red, white and blue of Team USA and has a gold Swoosh at the heel serving as a little bit of wishful thinking for Rio 2016.
The Nike Air Zoom Talaria 'Olympic' will be release through the NYC Nike x Kith Shop at 644 Broadway on August 5. A wider release is expected August 8 through select Nike Sportswear retailers.
