While the Nike Daybreak sports a vintage runner look that is bound to never go out of style, its Daybreak Type counterpart serves as the more unruly, modern take on the classic. This continues to hold true as an upcoming GS pair going natural with an earth-toned color palette and recycled materials.
The usual plush nylon uppers have been swapped out for a burlap-like construction in light beige. Recycled canvas in a similar shade is applied to the tongue and overlays at the forefoot to continue the organic look. Even the usual suede overlays and lacestays attempt to mimic the natural theme by going tonal in various brown shades. Unlike other Daybreak Types, the charcoal suede profile Swooshes of this pair opt for a unique, stripped-down design that leaves the now-narrow checks looking like scythes. A cream foam midsole that sees Regrind rubber underfoot rounds out the style for a nature-inspired arrangement.
Take a closer look at the Daybreak Type below, which will be available at Nike.com in the coming months.
