The Nike Air Rift receives an upgrade for the Summer in its brand new NikeLab Free Rift Sandal edition that allows the foot to move naturally and unrestricted, that doesn’t include the Air Rift’s iconic split-toe.
This newly designed Free Rift falls closer to the sandal end of the spectrum than its predecessor. The textile upper and rubber outsole of the original give way to protective TPU cages and plush Phylon midsoles. Nike Free technology, a concept trail blazed by the original Air Rift, completes the package to create the ultimate protective and flexible sneaker/sandal hybrid.
Check out the first set of colorways set to release and look for the NikeLab Free Rift Sandal to launch online and at select NikeLab retailers globally on May 7th, with a North America launch taking place on May 28th.
