    They retroed around 2010 in at least 3 og colorcolorways, and they didn't do so well. Granted, Nike jacked the metallic swoosh up, but they were retroed fairly recently.

    Peace,

    You sure that you're not thinking of the Zoom Dons, J? The last retro I recall of the Spiridons was 2005. I'd welcome a retro of the OGs with a proper metallic swoosh.

    Patiently waiting for another proper retro. Such a sleeper shoe.

    I need some Talarias, too.

    Yup. They retried the actual Spiridons around the same time. Weird fabric swoosh.

    Peace,

    Wow, didn't know that. Never saw them or heard anything about it. Do you happen to know what kind of release that was?

    I've been waiting forever. Auto cop 2 pairs of black/red/silver and black/blue/silver. One of the most underrated shoes imo

    How sure is dude above about the 2010 retro? I don't remember that at all. If that were the case, it seems like there would be some stray pairs around, but they are bone dry.

    I could be totally wrong. Almost positive my bro had them at his store (which Didn't open til 08). If I am, apologies in advance.

    I plead that they make them again, identical to the '05s, and not go cheap.

    The units in the bottom of the soles made these one of the most comfortable shoes ever.

    Wife got me these and the Cork Barkley 180s from Ubiq Summer of '05 in Philly.

    Both were 49.99 on clearance. I miss those days.

    Sorry, but the basketball version of the Spiridon looks like straight up garbage. It's like they tried to fuse a high-top Spiridon with the 6-rings sole... wtf.

    BUT, if they ever re-released the OG runners in the black/grey/red colorway I would definitely cop like 3 pairs.
