Brand: NOCTA x Nike
Model: Nike Swim Fin
Release Date: TBD
Editor's Notes: Drake, unofficial spokesman of the Turks and Caicos, is dropping a NOCTA x Nike sandal fit for his next beachside vacation.
According to sneaker leaker @houseofheat, the Her Loss rapper is gearing up to drop a NOCTA-fied take on Nike's Swim Fin, a water shoe reminiscent of the flippers a diver might wear snorkeling. Swapping out the fins' multicolored paneling for an all-black upper, Drizzy presents a more refined take on the boxy silhouette.
While the Swim Fins look like rectangular pool slides, they're actually intended to be worn in the water. Nike first introduced the style in 2019 as a training aid for swimmers, both competitive and casual. With a shorter "fin" than traditional flippers, the shoes are intended to maximize efficiency and speed in the water.
Nike has yet to confirm the release date of NOCTA's aquatic drop. Pricing also remains unclear.
Images of the NOCTA x Nike Swim Fins come hot on the heels of Drake's "Certified Love Boy" Air Force 1s, kicks that finally released in December after several delays. Here's hoping Champagne Papi's next drop releases in time for our summer vacations?
