Sheer Brilliance: The Nike DaybreakRelease: 1 May 2020
The Nike Daybreak has enjoyed a strong resurgence over the past year or so, with faithful reproductions of OG colourways and period-correct details. Now that it’s comfortable in the retro roster, the Swoosh have decide to go a little experimental.
This edition maintains the rough suede panelling associated with 1970s runners, but substitutes the nylon or mesh base for translucent TPE textile, similar to that used on the React Element 87. Golden tones and a maroon Swoosh speed up the aged look, while the see-through finish and crisp white sole are anachronisms that complete the interesting package.
