The Air Rift is one of Nike’s most distinctive and historic sneaker sandal model that has been very successful all across the globe ever since its debut in 1995-1996, especially in Puerto Rico and Japan. 2016 marked the 20th anniversary of the silhouette with an illustrated historical guide of its most unforgettable moments in Japan. The inspiration behind the Air Rift came from Kenyan barefoot runners. This year though, Nike decided to alter the model and introduced a new variation in the form of the Air Rift Wrap SE. Before 2016 ended, Nike apparently decided to release a new Air Rift Wrap SE colorway for the ladies.
When the Air Rift had been introduced by Nike for the very first time, its uppers were made up of a stretch-fit synthetic neoprene mesh material, while each of its heels had an Air Unit incorporated into it. The Air Rift is also known for featuring generous panels as a part of its uppers. Furthermore, the Air Rift had been designed to offer a lockdown fit, which is the reason it is equipped with foot straps. Earlier this year though, Nike modified and redesigned the model, removing the foot straps to give it a seamless wrap uppers made up of ventilated mesh material.
The best about the Nike Air Rift Wrap SE is likely the fact that is nothing like the usual sneakers and women certainly love to stand out, so they will surely grow fond of this brand new colorway. This time around, the Air Rift Wrap SE has quilted uppers with velcro straps, all of which are entirely dressed up in a rather stunningly bold and bright shade of Yellow. A tonal Nike “Swoosh” logo can be spotted over each toebox, while a Pink/Salmon hue covers the heel velcro straps that also feature Black-colored “Nike” branding. Adding further contrast, the finishing touch is added by the all-White speckled Air Rift soles it is equipped with.
Wearing such an eye-catching sneaker like this one is sure to make a woman stand out from the crowd. So, any of the ladies interested in copping a pair will have to spend merely $100 to lace up in this new Nike Air Rift Wrap SE iteration.
