The 100 Best Nikes of All Time

99. Zoom Haven

Year Introduced: 1999

An under-appreciated gem from the Alpha Project. (Are all Alpha Project shoes under-appreciated?) The Zoom Haven was conceptualized by Richard Clarke, who believed in the potential of a cocoon like shoe for cross training. In some ways, the shoe draws inspiration from the Air Trainer 1. In other ways, it gave a glimpse into a future of lighter weight, composite uppers (think Hyperfuse). The low profile looked fast, the colors crazy, and to this day will inspire envy in those who understand the Zoom Haven's clout.
