From Kenya to Your Feet

Alright, sneaker fam, let’s take a trip back in time to the origins of the Air Rift ‘Kenya’. Back in 1996, Hatfield was inspired by his travels to Kenya and the country’s unique running culture. He noticed that many Kenyan runners preferred to run barefoot or in sandals and wanted to create a sneak that could mimic the barefoot running experience while also providing protection and support.

The name ‘Rift’ comes from the Great Rift Valley, a geographic rift that runs from Lebanon to Mozambique, and it’s a nod to the sneaker’s split-toe design. The silo was also inspired by the traditional tabi shoes of Japan, which have a similar split-toe design. And now, over 25 years later, Nike is bringing back the classic ‘Kenya’ colourway, paying homage to the country that inspired it all.

Air Rift ‘Kenya’: Lit Style

This SE pack is a classic example of Nike’s innovative approach to design, combining style, comfort, and performance in one unique package. The ‘Kenya’ colourway of the Air Rift is a bold and eye-catching gem that will make everyone stare. The upper is primarily black, with a mesh material that’s both lightweight and breathable. The green accents on the sneaker really pop against the black base, adding a touch of wildness to the overall look.

The tiny red Nike logo on the toe box is a subtle detail that shows off the brand’s iconic branding, while the ‘NIKE’ branding on the back belt adds another layer of boldness to the design. A clean white midsole completes the overall look. The Air Rift ‘Kenya’ reissue is also getting a few modern updates, including a more breathable upper and a comfortable Phylon midsole.
