Drake’s iconic Nocta x Nike Hot Step sneaker collaboration gets a makeover.
Sneaker leak’s social media account @Yankeekicks shared images of the Nocta x Nike Hot Step in a new purple colorway on Instagram yesterday which is expected to hit shelves before the end of the year.
The Nocta x Nike Hot Step’s new makeup features an all-Purple color scheme primarily on the premium leather upper, including various Swoosh branding and laces. Sticking with the purple look is the hue dressing the chunky midsole, which takes inspiration from the classic Nike Air Terra Humara sneaker. Rounding out the design, G-TEK traction technology on the outsole provides a comfortable ride and support.
The Nocta x Nike Hot Step was designed by both Drake and the Swoosh for their Nocta sub-label and the sneaker made its retail debut in February in “Triple White” and “Triple Black” makeups.
“NOCTA’s first signature shoe blends the spirit of the brand perfectly. The design effortlessly combines retro Nike familiarity, unrivaled comfort, functionality and a minimalist yet subtly aggressive design,” Nike wrote for the silhouette’s product description.
According to @Yankeekicks on Instagram, the purple-based makeup from the Nocta x Nike Hot Step collaboration will be released this year but the shoe’s release date has yet to be announced by the brand.
In related Nike news, Jacquemus and Nike are launching a new collaboration in June, which is a women-focused collection that is part of Nike’s future vision of “50 for Her” to celebrate the Swoosh’s 50th anniversary.
