Year Introduced: 1991

The Air Structure Triax from 1991 had a few elements that make it stand out from the plethora of high performance runners in Nike's past. The overlay paneling made for great contrasting options when it came to colorways. Nike flipped the script by removing the Swoosh on the medial side, which back then was something you didn't see coming. Then they took it a step further with the original colorway by putting Teal on the outer and Infrared on the inner. In 1991, this was mind blowing for a kid rummaging the sporting goods store for something unique.
