When NOCTA first burst onto the scene, there was no indication that footwear would be part of its offering. Apparel sat in the driver's seat for a reasonable stretch before the classic Drake social media rollout showed indications of a new Nike silhouette.

That rollout, of course, culminated in the release of the NOCTA Hot Step Air Terra, which then proceeded to launch in several colorways before settling back into obscurity. Now, NOCTA and Nike are preparing a new sneaker offering, the revival of the 1999 Nike Air Zoom Drive.

NOCTA is going full speed ahead on its new sneaker, which follows the release of Drake's NOCTA Nike Glide, a Zoom Flight-inspired silhouette. The For All the Dogs artist also teased handful of Glide colorways, including white, red, silver, and green — most of which finally dropped in 2023.

Drake and Nike also have a Hot Step 2 sitting in the vault. But it appears that a revival of the Air Zoom Drive will be first up in the new year.

The NOCTA Zoom Drive would mark the first time that the late 90s silhouette has received a retro treatment. Letting NOCTA take the lead on a retro release is a bold move from Nike, putting great faith in the Drake-led label to deliver results. Then again, the Certified Lover Boy Air Force 1 has proven that Drake sneakers sell.

With official looks at the black and white NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive sneaker making its rounds (rumored to drop in Spring 2024), we're keen to know what else is sitting in the vault at NOCTA. From the looks of it, the duo has more golf clothes in storage.
