In 1996, the Swoosh debuted their first split-toed model with hook-and-loop strap details inspired by Kenyan runners. Having recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, the cult classic Nike Air Rift is receiving a revival for lifestyle wearers fond of the similarly constructed Maison Margiela’s tabi-toe silhouette.
Having been a few months since our last look at The latest colorway of Nike’s split-toe model applies the staple “Triple Black” aesthetic that’s become synonymous with the Air Force 1 meme for a simple and sleek warm-weather look that can be traversed through concrete jungles.
This healthy dose of 90’s nostalgia comes fitted with the original mid-foot and heel straps allowing for customizable comfort in tandem with the exposed mid-foot design.
Take a closer look at the Air Rift below while we sit tight for the pair to arrive on nike.com.
