Who wants to wear close-toes shoes in this heat? Can we just say athletes foot should be enough of a deterrent to spend people kicking their regular shoes off and running out barefoot for some open-toed numbers? Nike has taken the steamy summer months into consideration, and aside from introducing weaved uppers and breathable material into its sneaker line-up, Nike realized the best ventilation comes from sandals. While some sandals evoke an image of a chubby middle-aged man in boxers and a three dollar for a pack of ten Hanes undershirt walking out to grab the morning papers while scratching his butt, these Tekapo Slide Premium slippers from Nike Sportswear is nothing close to that shudder-worthy image.
After the cool camouflage collection of Tekapo Slide, Nike Sportswear has released this premium all-black version of the sandals, but featuring a Tier 0 motif designed by Japanese artist Tomokazu Matsuyama on the suede insoles. Of course, since this is a Tier 0 release, there is no skimping on material, and a premium leather upper with a laser etched Swoosh with contrasting soles promise to keep your feet cool both literally and figuratively in this unforgiving summer day. Slide around in style, and grab yours at select Nike retailers such as Kasina.
