When Drake was provided full reign over the Nike HQ, everyone knew something big was on the horizon. But months thereafter, what came to light was NOCTA, the two’s newfound sub-label that honored the artist’s nocturnal creative process. And though there were more than a handful of apparel pieces to feast on, no footwear options laid in sight, something that is thankfully changing later this year with the release of the Hot Step Air Terra NOCTA.
Teased via a few in-studio images, the pair is set to arrive first in a bright White/Chrome colorway. While it does share part of its name with existing offerings, the design only seems loosely inspired by the line-up. The tooling, for example, does bear a passing resemblance to the Air Terra Humara, but upon closer inspection, it subverts such a connection with the shape of its Air Unit and the subtle two-toning evident along the medial side. Above, the upper’s leathers are constructed sleek, with subtle quilting and diagonal perforations accenting along the profile.
For now, take a quick peek at the forthcoming collaboration here. A release, as currently rumored, is set to hit Nike SNKRS in Fall for a retail of $150 USD.
In other news, a Patta New Balance 991 is coming this month.
