You would be entirely forgiven if this 2001 running silhouette slipped your mind. At the turn of the 21st century, experimentation was the order of the day in shoe design. The mix of a full length Air Zoom sole and the ultra-modern cutout upper design, however, didn’t connect with any particular audience, and the shoe was archived fairly quickly.
In 2016, the fashion climate is a bit more sophisticated. Not only would no one bat an eye at a shoe that combines progressive design with a performance tech aesthetic, but crowds of people are actively clamoring for it.
The reintroduction, in the form of the Air Zoom Chalapuka mixes muted earth tones with more traditionally athletically oriented colors in a perfect blend of the shoe’s twin inspirations.
