The Canadian rapper Drake has channeled his creative energy into the realm of footwear, collaborating once again with Nike on the Nike Nocta Glide, a sneaker that is as much about performance as it is about making a bold fashion statement. The Kentucky men’s basketball team was the lucky recipient of its own exclusive version of this sneaker, underscoring the design’s versatility and appeal to a diverse audience.
The “Triple White” pair is getting an early release, much to the delight of fans eagerly awaiting its arrival. This release is a precursor to the colorway’s official debut via the SKRS app later this week. Accompanying the “Triple White” is the online exclusive “Crimson” colorway, a design that first caught our attention via a post on Drake’s Instagram earlier this summer.
The “Crimson” colorway is a visual feast, draped almost entirely in a vibrant shade of red. The bold hue is beautifully contrasted by a series of pitch black shades that adorn the tongue, heel tab, tread, and raised TPU side swoosh. Carbon fiber accents maintain their traditional placement along the forefoot and heel, adding an element of sophistication to the design.
Both pairs proudly feature custom NOCTA tongue tabs and insole badges, a nod to the collaboration’s attention to detail and commitment to quality. Underfoot, a Zoom Air unit and GTEK rubber outsole provide unparalleled comfort and traction, ensuring these sneakers are as functional as they are stylish.
