Nike Talaria Boot

By - May 11th, 2011

The winged sandals of godly messenger Hermes got some more recognition when Nike Air Talaria debuted in 1997. Initially equipped with the Nike Air and later Zoom Air, the Greco-Roman mythology got a big boost last year with the movie Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, albeit a CONVERSE variant. Nevertheless, Nike brought back the Air Talaria in its latest incarnation as the Talaria Boot. In a chukka boot fashion, the clear outsole shows the Zoom Air cushioning system. Meanwhile, its laser etched upper gives a contemporary design sensibility. Two colorways will be available – black/orange/yellow and brown/black/blue, each pair sporting a reflective heel tab featuring Talaria logo in cursive font. These sneakers are currently available on pre-order at mita sneakers and will be available from Saturday, May 14th.
