Yesterday, Nike announced the return of their classic 1996 sneaker/sandal hybrid, the Air Rift. Drawing inspiration from the barefoot style of Kenyan distance runners, the unique design was the Swoosh’s first attempt at a natural motion sole. It features a lightweight and breathable mesh upper that wicks moisture, a super flexible NM sole unit that enhances traction, Velcro closures on the heel and midfoot and the defining split-toe. The Spring/Summer 2015 Collection includes a brand new colorway, along with two original ones, that are bright and bold, perfect for the warm months ahead. The Nike Air Rift will release on April 27, with additional colors coming on May 15.

Release Date: 4/27/2015 (Monday)
