Nike Retro the OG DaybreakRelease: 22 June 2019
Seen here in a period-correct nylon and suede makeup, the two-tone grey colour-blocking makes way for a very tasteful purple Swoosh to serve as the key branding callout. Below is a white foam wedge midsole, and Nike’s iconic waffle tread outsole in black.
Nike have even gone the distance and sourced accurate coarsely-woven shoelaces to complete the time-capsule fresh look.
Here’s one for the sneaker nerds: these last appeared in 2007, albeit with some unwanted pre-vintage yellow smearing on the midsole. It will be interesting to see the Daybreak’s reception sans collaborative soapbox.
Releasing June 22 at select Nike retailers.
