The 50 Best Euro Exclusive Nikes of All Time

5. Nike Zoom Talaria "Nort"

Year: 2004

Created around the opening of Berlin's Nort store, this Hyperstrike take on one of the greatest Nike designs of the late 1990s was a neutral antidote to the dumb colorways drifting around at the time and used the model because it was a favorite of serial Nike collaborator Stash. Little is known about how the shoe was distributed, but it's a quiet masterpiece that counteracts the boldness of the original tennis ball colorway (canceling the release of that version after sampling it in 2005 remains a baffling decision). Flawless.
