The Split-Toe Look Is Revived on the Nike Air Rift Breathe
Celebrating 20 years of split-toe design.
In honor of its 20th anniversary, Nike presented Air Rift with a “Breathe”-edition. Inspired by the barefoot style of Kenyan distance runners, its signature split-toe design — giving natural articulation between toes — and anatomical last have proven Air Rift to be the most progressive of its kind.
Breathe was sourced in partnership with Piece & Co. — 90 women artisans who use traditional African techniques to create tie-dyed patterns. The latest addition gets breathable mesh upper in lieu of neoprene — construction perfect for the summer. The Nike Air Rift Breathe drops on June 9 at Nike stockists and online.
