While Drake has the Midas touch in the music studio, his sneaker design success seems to have suffered a bit lately. Many of his past releases were definite bangers; his Nocta Hot Step and even the CLB Air Force 1’s were meh. Let's also not forget about the swim fins. Now the megastar is putting out the Nike Nocta Glide, and it may be his best design in a while.
The Nike Nocta Glide draws on the vision of the Zoom Flight 95 with a more aerodynamic construction. The Nocta Glide uses a black upper with a significant overlay of a carbon fiber-style design. The oversized midsole features a wavy structure with oval-shaped inlays dressed to match the carbon fiber print. An icy outsole and white trim on the eye stays give the Nocta Glide a rather appealing package.
The Nocta x Nike Glide "Black/White" is set to release Thursday, September 14th at midnight EST on the NOCTA website and globally on Friday, September 15th via the Nike SNKRS app. For more Nocta updates and for news on the latest releases, raffles, and restocks, follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
