The groundbreaking sneaker hybrid that debuted in 1996 is back. Featuring a split-toe construction inspired by the barefoot runners of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley – and an outsole design that takes it’s cue from the region’s topography – the Nike Air Rift is open to just about anything.
Re-launched for summer 2015, the Air Rift’s idiosyncratic glory remains intact. A textile-engineered mesh upper that wicks moisture and allows for optimal ventilation augments the shoe’s distinctive style. The defining split-toe, in harmony with a flexible natural motion outsole, provides enhanced traction. Two Velcro closures on the heel and midfoot secure the foot with a customisable fit.
The Nike Air Rift OG releases online this coming Friday (15th May) at 8:00am BST via direct links on our Facebook and Twitter pages and in size? stores from their respective opening times. They will be priced at £85 in UK sizes 4.5 – 12 (including half sizes).
