With its reintroduction, the Nike Air Rift is slated to come in its original colorways, as well many others for Summer 2015.

Highlighting this bright variation, dipped in an official palette of – Crystal Mint/Bright Citrus/Total Orange/Black – the barefoot style silhouette is defined by its distinct split-toe construction. This sneaker/sandal hybrid boasts a breathable textile-engineered mesh upper, while reinforced by a flexible natural motion outsole that provides enhanced traction and sufficient cushion upon every step.

Rounded out with two velcro closures on the heel and midfoot that ensures additional support, look for this colorway of the Nike Air Rift at Nike accounts starting May 15 for $100.


Author’s Take

First making its debut in 1996.. back then I would’ve purchased, if I was able to, but I still cared about my lighted L.A. gear..if only those lights were added to this silhouette.

On a serious note, almost twenty years after the model was offered to the public, it’s still a modern design perfect for this generation and perhaps the future.

It goes to show that Nike will always be a leader in innovative footwear for many years to come. Kudos for bringing it back.
