As its name indicates, Nike‘s Air Structure Triax 91 first released in 1991 as a high-performance running shoe. In the years since it’s transitioned into a Nike Sportswear lifestyle model, one that was last seen from 2008 to 2010, and now it’s set for another retro revival in 2021 thanks to makeups like this sporty navy, gray gold and white colorway.
Uppers boast an artful blend of mesh and leather panels and overlays. Toeboxes take on a navy mesh, overlaid with a gray leather mudguard. This Air Stab-like mudguard creeps back onto the midfoot, serving as an anchor point for the two bottom eyestays before giving way to a white leather quarter. Quarters are cut out towards the collar to reveal a piece of white mesh, and are also accented by a metallic gold Swoosh on the lateral side — though they’re left completely unadorned on the medial side. The top set of eyestays are done up in gold, while gray leather tongues with embroidered gold and gray detailing top off the navy mesh throat. A final gray branded hit sits on the heel, with EVA midsoles housing a gold Max Air unit and black outsoles rounding off the look.
An official release date for the Nike Air Structure Triax 91 has yet to be announced, but it’ll likely arrive on the Nike webstore in the first quarter of 2021.
