As you can see, the shoe features the same silhouette, wavy lines, and full-length Air Max you already know and love from the original, but modifies the construction with a seamless jacquard knit textile and synthetic upper. Get a good look at a simple black and white colorway, and expect the new Air Max 97 Ultra ’17 to drop on August 1st at select retailers and Nike.com.Originally created back in 1966 for the Kenyan Running Team, the Nike Air Riftfeatures a unique look, well noted for its split toe design which was inspired by Japanese ninjas. So it makes perfect sense that Nike would collaborate with a Japanese Women’s fashion brand called Milkfed to bring back this lightweight sneaker. They should be available on June 2, 2008 at Essense. viaSneakerSpeaker.
Originally introduced in 1996, the Nike Air Rift has returned in a slew of iterations this year, with one particular standout being this Liberty of London x Nike Air Rift “Merlin.”A unique sneaker/sandal hybrid that was inspired by the barefoot style of Kenyan distance runners, in addition to aesthetic cues taken from Kenya’s topography, the silhouette inherits a breathable textile-engineered mesh upper in White, while covered in Liberty of London’s iconic “Merlin” print that displays a vivid multicolor geometric pattern across its entirety.Defined by a split-toe construction, the model is further reinforced by matching two velcro closures on the heel and midfoot, all while resting atop a flexible natural motion sole unit in Black and White.
Priced at $120, you can purchase the Liberty of London x Nike Air Rift “Merlin” at select Nike retailers now.Is it just me, or am I getting sort of a A Tribe Called Quest vibe when I take a look at these shoes? Regardless, here’s a look at the Nike Air Rift that comes in an all-Black colorway (almost).The shoe rocks on all-Black upper made out of suede, neoprene and mesh. Creating contrast on the shoe are the White hits placed on the sole unit and heel and toe Nike branding. A look inside noted an insole done in a Black, Green and Red wavy pattern. Like what you see? The shoe just dropped today at select retailers for the retail price of $100. Is this a cop or drop? Let us know in the comments below.
