Nike’s Air Structure Triax running shoe is poised to return in retro form this year after a blue and gold color scheme was found on the brand’s website last week. Now, we can confirm the revival of the vintage runner thanks to more new colorways, coming soon.

Nike’s experimentation with its Air technology was progressing rapidly in the late ’80s and ’90s, with new innovations launching on a yearly basis. Among the first of these futuristic first steps was the Air Structure Triax from 1991, which introduced a number of firsts for Air technology including the first-ever symmetrical underfoot airbags. The Structure Triax was lauded by Nike fans for its supreme comfort and stability as a running shoe and has since gone down as one of the most beloved Nike Air shoes to date. Now, after we last saw it in 2008 for a limited retro release, the Air Structure Triax is set to make a return in 2021, thirty years after its debut in 1991. Previewed initially in a cool white, navy blue,. and gold color scheme, the Triax has surfaced once more this week in new greyscale makeup, combining black, white, and grey tones for a neutral look.


Nike’s retro release of the Air Structure Triax from 1991 has not yet been announced for release, though the emergence of official imagery suggests they will launch from Nike’s website sometime in the coming weeks. The vintage running shoe in the “Greyscale” colorway will be available from both Nike and select retailers with a new price tag of $130. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
