Your favorite tabi-toed sneaker is looming.

Fashion Girlies Rejoice: The Nike Air Rift Arrives In All Black

When one can’t decide on an outfit, the all-black head-to-toe look has never failed a fashionista. So here’s the good news: one of the more elusive cult hits among style circles is coming back in an in-demand color.

Despite gaining prominence in the mid-1990s in Japan, the tabi-toed Nike Air Rift was never fully adopted by the global mass market. It being completely under-the-radar has its benefits; while finding new pairs may be difficult, wearing an unusual and uncommon pair of shoes is very often the final piece of the outfit puzzle. Going with an all-black look has been the cheat code for many living in big cities, so for Rift fans who need a fresh pair this summer, Nike’s got it coming soon in stealth mode.

The Air Rift is indeed a women’s release, but the few drops that did happen in 2023 were available in a few extended sizes, so keep an eye once these arriving this Spring/Summer season.
