The Nike Air Rift Retro is set to return beginning later this month, April 2015 and will be coming back in a few original colorways, as well as some new women’s and men’s pair.
The design of the Nike Air Rift was inspired by the efficient barefoot style of Kenyan distance runners and their international competition dominance. To honor the fleet-footed muses, the shoe debuted in the colors of the country’s flag and drew its name from Kenya’s Rift Valley province.
Featuring 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 customizable fit.
Look for the Nike Air Rift to return on April 27th in two original colorways (Black/Green-Red) and (Blue/Yellow-Orange). Following those launches will be another date of May 15th that will introduce two new colorways, a women’s all-White pair and a men’s Black/White-Teal edition.
