The Air Icarus Extra formed the backbone of Nike's once famed and prolific 'International' running club & range during the early 90s. Following on from its debut in 1991, the Icarus Extra arrived the following year, with a prime directive of providing lightweight cushioning in a durable running silhouette at an affordable price. Falling into the visual design language of the 'International' program, the Icarus Extra was available in bold colour combinations such as pairing Red, White & Black with Neon Lime embroidery. The Icarus Extra's cut through Swoosh made it a discernible entry into Nike's running archives. Over time, the durable and stubborn Air injected Phylon midsole of the Icarus shrugged off the tyranny of time and oxygen by remaining readily wearable for the collectors and individuals that coveted their slice of Swoosh DNA. 25 years later and the Icarus Extra is back in one of it's original colourways - embracing the energy and propulsion of Nike Running as the Swoosh headed towards a new millennium.

The Men's Nike Icarus Extra is priced at $149.95 AUD | Size: Men's US 6-13
