1998 – Nike Air Talaria

The Talaria stands as one of the most innovative Running shoe designs in Nike’s history. It adopted Zoom Air for cushioning and featured an unconventional design with the trademark ‘Talaria’ font on the heel of the shoe. The Talaria would later be rebuilt as a ‘Boot’ version while serving as design inspiration for future ACG models like the Lunar MacLeay. Image via Truffa

1999 Air Jordan IV Retro ‘Oreo’

When the Air Jordan IV was re-issued in 1999 in the original White/Cement and Black/Cement colorways, Nike introduced the Jumpman logo to the heel, replacing the original Nike Air on the originals. These also arrived during the first wave of Retro releases after Michael Jordan’s final retirement in 1998. Image via Evanga

2000 Nike Air Woven

The Air Woven was created precisely with Japan in mind, and despite its cushioning and breathable nature, the Woven was perceived as a Lifestyle shoe. Most were released exclusively in Japan and several collaborations with HTM were created. Wovens continue to be a firm niche in the sneaker game, with 2012’s re-issues providing a nice ‘refresh’ of this iconic design. Image via B.Goode

2001 – Nike Air Flightposite III

The final ‘Posite’ sneaker of the Nike Alpha Project was the Flightposite III. The upper consisted of a unique Foamposite-based shell with an inner bootie, but aside from the supreme fit of the shoe was the hypnotic 3-D panels on the upper – something never done on any sneaker in history. These turn-of-the-century classics defined the era of Nike Basketball’s out-of-the-box designs, which fluidly transferred to Shox. Image via SonOfRagingJoe

2002 Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low

NYC-based Supreme has done several Nike collaborations since 2002, but none are as cherished and honored as the original SB Dunk Low. It came during Nike SB’s first official collection, standing out with the Air Jordan III-inspired colorways and materials. Image via kid_sneakerness
