The Nike 2016 Summer Air Rift Collection features a hybrid sandal sneaker designed to let the wearer's feet breathe better in hotter temperatures, while still maintaining the fit and athletic look of a sneaker. The shoes have a slip-on structure complete with easy to fasten velcro straps for easy on-the-go wear.

The Air Rift Collection includes the Rift Wrap and the Free Rift styles. The sneakers are designed by Nike, but are quite divergent to any of their other footwear styles. The shoes feature a modular white soal coupled with a closed toe and heel. The centre of the foot remains exposed for breathability while a thick strap along the top keeps the shoe fitted to the foot. The summer collection is complete with bold tie-dye prints.
