Like the Nike Footscape, the Nike Air Rift was a 90’s shoe with a peculiar design that enjoyed a strong cult following. It featured design cues not found in many other sneakers, like the split toe and velcro strap on the in-step and heel with an upper cross-pollinated between a ballet and ninja shoe. The Air Rift was actually meant for running and not for delicate prancing or stealthy assaults, although you’re more than welcome to do so with these on. Two new women’s colorways in a weave design will release this month at atmos, so continue reading for a better look at the new colorways of this Nike classic.
