Nike evolves the sneaker boot into a blend of classic styling and contemporary technology with the release of the Nike Zoom Terra Sertig ’16. Retaining the bold 1990s style of the original in a bright taxi yellow and red option – and a more subtle black and anthracite colorway – the updated shoe will hit stores on January 5.

Under the hood, the Nike Zoom Terra Sertig ’16 packs some major performance updates such as Zoom Air-equipped midsole, eyelet protection, and water-resistant protection around the toe.

A neoprene sock liner adds ankle protection, which was missing from the shoe’s most recent iteration; 2012’s Air Max Terra Sertig. Pictured below, the reengineered shoe – released in Fall 2012 – featured full 360 Air Max cushioning. Perhaps a bit heavy on the visible Air, while the 2016 version brings back Zoom technology.

Originally released in 1997 as part of Nike’s ACG (All Conditions Gear) line of hiking shoes and clothing, the first Zoom Terra Sertig combined features of a runner with a hiking boot – and became an instant street classic with its loud, 1990s technical styling. Upon its release, the Zoom Terra Sertig was advertised in a minimalist campaign featuring a small Swoosh and a toll-free phone number (pictured below).

Comparing the 1997 edition with the Nike Zoom Terra Sertig ’16, the evolution visibly comes full circle: The same classic, bold color styling meets the latest tech. Watch for the new Nike ACG-inspired shoe to release on January 5 on Nike.com and at select retailers.
