Some shoes are retro, and then some are not quite retro enough.
It is a pity that some brands get lost in the shuffle when they were capable of making some really quite good product. With as many runners as there are today, we could always use more good shoes and this one could fit right in today.
Every shoe has to start somewhere. Here is the introduction for a current stalwart:
What is not to love about a classic retro shoe? The Nike Zoom Waffle from Y2K has the enduring looks.
If the Harrier from 1997 were introduced today runners would… actually think it was a pretty darn good shoe. It has the same basic profile we see today, same upper materials, and a tread that maybe ought to be revisited, or at the very least reexamined. Ah, nostalgia - it isn’t always as wistful as one might think. At least in recent memory, many of the shoes are as good as what we have today.
