For many, this release will bring additional joy to the festive season. Nike have presented the new Air Aqua Rift, coming in two colourways: 'Original Mashup' and 'Summit White'.
The Air Aqua Rift is a new take on the 1995 Air Rift, modernised to fit today's sneaker zeitgeist – exaggerated, loud, inflated, and in your face. Yet while one colourway is as equally loud as the silhouette, the other is more muted, suited to those who want to keep their chill a bit whilst going about their day.
The uppers are made out of a mish-mash of stretchy neoprene and sporty mesh and are equipped with the classic split-toe design and a super-cute strap across the top. The 'Original Mashup' comes in a selection of red, yellow, blue and cyan, while the 'Summit White' dons hues of 'Sail' and eggshell. Additional features include a thicker midsole than what was previously seen and 'Not Required For Use' written across the midfoot. It's a really unique shoe!
The two colourways will hit Nike SNKRS Japan on December 19. We're hoping a more widespread release will hit soon.
