The highly anticipated comeback of an iconic 1990s running silhouette is here! The Aria featured two technological innovations, the Fulcrum midsole and mono tongue upper construction. Both technologies were iconic for the 90s era. To give the Fulcrum component an extra touch, a carbon fi ber plate was added, which gave the shoe extra support. The outcome was introduced to the world exactly 20 years ago and is fi nally being brought back to life.
