Updated July 11th, 2023: Due to some discrepancies, we’ve removed the original set of images and replaced with a selection of photos that are confirmed to reflect authentic pairs.
Back in September of last year, Drake shared a first look at what we now know to be the Nike NOCTA Glide, a brand new silhouette inspired by a much-beloved court classic: the Zoom Flight 95. And to complement the “Black/White” style slated to release later this July, the silhouette will be arriving in five additional colorways, all of which were just revealed in detail.
Though distinct from the sneaker its based on in many respects — from the mid-top cut to the design of the upper itself — the Nike NOCTA Glide is still very evidently influenced by the Eric Avar-created classic. The sole, for example, draws very overt cues from that of the Zoom Flight 95, boasting the same bug-eyed detailing and ample use of carbon fiber. The colorways of Drake’s upcoming offering, however, do help distinguish it from its predecessor, proffering everything from neon greens and bright, all-red styles to simpler staples the likes of “Triple Black” and “Triple White.”
Enjoy a look at many of the Nike NOCTA Glide’s upcoming colorways right here. At the time of writing this, release dates have not yet been confirmed; for now, sit tight and await further updates.
In other news, a first look at the Air Jordan 3 Oreo was revealed over the weekend.
