Nike resurrects the Epic

Despite the weather's best attempts to plunge the nation into the midst of an early autumn, Nike is pushing on with a summer of abundant colourful revivals.

Following successful returns for the Air Max 95 OG and the Huarache, the American sports giant is dipping into its considerable locker to bring back another classic: the Epic.

Nike

The structured runner first appeared on tracks in 1985, incorporating Nike's famed Air cushion heel and 3M (reflective) detailing. 

For its latest return, the Epic flies in the face of lightweight, knitted runners, with a build consisting of suede panels, mesh and nylon. 

Nike

Available in two colourways (yellow and blue or burgundy and orange - which somehow works), you can pick up a pair of the new Epics for £85 from Nike.com

Here's hoping we have enough summer left to warrant the revival.
