The Nike Air Rift first made its debut back in 1996. The sneaker/sandal hybrid, which made a brief return last year, was their first entry into footwear that promoted natural motion. It wasn’t as popular as some of the other models that were prominent at the time, but the unique split-toe design and stretch fit was years ahead of its time. Inspired by the efficient barefoot style of Kenyan distance runners, the Air Rift features a textile-engineered mesh upper that wicks moisture and provides ventilation, an ultra-flexible natural motion outsole that enhances traction and two Velcro closures on the heel and midfoot. Original colorways of the Nike Air Rift will be available online and at select Nike Sportswear retailers starting April 27, with additional colors coming on May 15.
