Back in 1997 the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon wasn’t the most popular of silhouettes in the mainstream, but Nike‘s continuous string of throwback releases is still welcoming a 2016 retro of the sneaker (check out the Spiridon’s original ad).
The quirky cult favorite that takes its name from the Greek Saint Spyridon was almost ahead of its time; this futuristic running shoe held a design that carried through to counterparts in the 2000s with its chunky Swoosh logo and full-length Zoom Air unit sole. After a small re-release issued in the early ’00s the Spiridon ultimately ceased production after it was channeled into a basketball sneaker, the Zoom Don. We’re excited to see its return in possible OG colorways like Black/Red (pictured above), Royal/Silver or Royal/Red.
Watch out for the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Retro 16 to be officially revealed soon.
