From the ground up

It’s been 20 years since Nike first introduced its Air Rift sneaker, a shoe that has gone through a plethora of iterations, some as recently as last week. To commemorate this landmark anniversary, the brand has introduced an entirely new silhouette that it has named the “Breathe.”

The sneaker’s chief stylistic difference, and namesake, comes from its upper’s construction of breathable mesh. It also of course features staples of the Air Rift design, such as the split-toe and cushioned Air-Sole heel unit. The “Breathe” will arrive in three colorways: red, blue and black.

Look out for the Nike Air Rift “Breathe” to arrive on Thursday, June 16 for $125.
