Nike and its roster of musical talent arguably sits at the top of the sneaker industry, and one artist that has been generating some waves is Drake. The OVO rapper’s output alongside the Swoosh has been comprised of various sneaker and apparel releases, and the former is slated to expand soon with the launch of a new Zoom Flight 95-Inspired NOCTA x Nike silhouette. After being spotted rocking a black and white pair courtside at a Raptors game earlier this year, the hit-making emcee has just previewed a duo of new colorways.
During his trip to Nike WHQ for the company’s Just Do It event, Drizzy snapped a photo of what appears to be a red and black iteration as well as a “Triple White” offering. The overall shape, materials and construction is very similar to the Nike Zoom Flight 95, but they carry certain design differences that allow them to stand on their own. Side panels swap out the curvy overlays for a sleeker panel, the collars have been fitted with additional molds and the rear ends of the bulbous midsoles have added an extra mold. If you zoom in closely on the bug-eye attachments, you’ll notice that they’ve been accessorized with debossed NOCTA branding.
No release info has been announced yet, but it’s likely that we could see these launching later this year or early next 2023.
