Drake teases reflective pair of his Nike x NOCTA Hot Step Air Terra sneakers
After teasing a disappointing collaboration with Air Force 1, Drake is stepping up his shoe game with a new variation of his Nike Hot Step Air Terra sneakers. The Canadian rapper shared a black and gold iteration of the shoe on Instagram, highlighting its co-branding and reflective details.
Produced as part of her sub-label NOCTA, the Hot Step Air Terras were initially teased in Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later” music video, where the sneaker appeared in all-white makeup. Sporting a chunky sole and ribbed upper, the sneakers were quickly compared to Kanye West’s Yeezy kicks, but Drake’s shoes will likely be more accessible.
Certified Blanket Boy – Champagne Papi’s latest glimpse of his NOCTA sneaker shows a new color scheme, much brighter than the first Hot Step Air Terra we saw. The shoe’s black leather uppers are accented with reflective 3M accents, while NOCTA and Nike branding on the toes, tongue, and heels glow a vibrant yellow. Sturdy midsoles – complemented by iconic Nike air bubbles – add more yellow and black to the model.
Drake’s latest sneaker joins his fast-growing Hot Step Air Terra shoe collection, none of which have been released yet. The aforementioned tone-on-tone white pair, an all-black pair, and a wild gray snakeskin iteration of the NOCTA sneaker are expected to drop soon – possibly in a pack – but neither Nike nor the rapper have announced a release schedule.
As fans waited for Drake’s launch Boy in love certified album, people speculated that the rapper’s sneakers would be released simultaneously. But between beef with Kanye, a NOCTA golf collection, and creepy CLB merch, Drake has apparently been too busy and “Way 2 Sexy” for his next sneakers.
Drip like Drake – Whenever Champagne Papi’s Nike Hot Step Air Terra Shoes come out, they will sell out fast thanks to the huge name behind them. By the leakage count @pyleaks, the shoes are expected to sell for $ 150 each, with a drop expected in the fall – but how long have we waited for? Boy in love certified, we don’t know when we will actually see the shoes.
