The NikeLab Free Rift Sandal is a reiteration of the 1996 Air Rift, the international sportswear brand's attempt to create a running shoe devoid of unnecessary restrictions. Although a hybrid between a sneaker and sandal, the latest design falls closer to the latter. With its textile upper and rubber outsole, plush Phylon midsoles and Nike Free technology, it achieves a natural and barefoot feel in a unique way.

Originally designed with volleyball players in mind, the NikeLab Free Rift Sandal can be appreciated by any athlete. Especially for those who would like to test drive the decoupled toe and minimal upper. It is available in store just in time for the warmer weather and the fun outdoor summer activities the season brings.
