In late 2020, Nike partnered up with Drake to launch NOCTA, an entirely new sub-label inspired by the rap icon’s nocturnal creative process. Kicked off with the Hot Step Air Terra silhouette and an assortment of apparel suitable for nighttime activities, NOCTA has procured an identity that street-minded hustlers find relatable.

For his latest collection, Drake looks to the lifestyle of Nigeria with “Distant Regards”, offering up a versatile collection of apparel that focuses on functionality. A jacket with no shortage of storage pockets, technical tops and bottoms, and even a glint of luxury via a Swarovski collaboration comprise this refined capsule. The Hot Step Air Terra, the footwear aspect of this collection, is presented with luxurious snakeskin exteriors on the puffed quarter panels. Three colorways are confirmed for this drop, with two (Pink Oxford and Light Pumice) being exclusive to NOCTA.

The Nike x NOCTA “Distant Regards” collection will officially release on May 15th on SNKRS and at midnight EST on nocta.com on May 16th. The “Light Bone” colorway of the Hot Step Air Terra will drop across all channels, while two new colorways — the Pink Oxford and Light Pumice — will drop exclusively on NOCTA.

In other collaboration news, Kanye West and adidas have agreed to terms to release existing Yeezy footwear.
