After debuting the NOCTA line earlier in 2021, Drake and Nike are gearing up for the release of the 6 God's first true signature model: the NOCTA x Nike Hot Step Air Terra.

A unique silhouette that's seemingly equal parts Nike Sportswear and Nike ACG, hence its Air Terra Humara–adjacent name, the Hot Step features a crisp all-white build with a quilted leather upper. There are plenty of perforations and metallic silver details to be had as well, the most notable of which are small chrome Swooshes and NOCTA's three-star logo on the tongue's jewelled badge/the insoles.

Chunky midsoles house the Hot Step Air Terra's main dash of colour, namely a large yellow heel Air Max unit. There's also an old-school G-Tek traction pattern on the outsole – a feature that was commonplace on early-mid 2000s Nike footwear – which itself is acknowledged by another badge on the heel.

Drake has collaborated on the Air Jordan 10, Air Jordan 12 and other models in the past, and received a swath of PEs ranging from the Air Jordan 3 '6IX' to an Air Max Plus 'Stage Use'. However, as this is his first original silhouette, it marks a new chapter in his partnership with Nike. Release information has yet to be revealed, but it's quite possible that the NOCTA x Nike Hot Step Air Terra will release around Drake's birthday on October 24.
