Drake's NEW trending Nike X NOCTA sneakers resembling carbon fiber patterns have broken the internet! From Kai Cenat trying them on, to DJ Kaled creating the saying “Why walk when you can just glide”, describes a silhouette never seen before and yet borrows heavily from 90’s basketball sneakers. Drake's latest drop is channeling serious basketball energy. If you notice, this sneaker takes inspiration from the Air Zoom 95’ from the colorway to the now upscaled design, including a woven base with carbon fiber units in the sole of the shoe making; the shoe lighter in weight then it appears. However, the most eye-catching detail is the bug eye sole which is highlighted more than its original predecessor.

To dive in deeper with Drake's new creation the eye stays on the upper spelling out “Nike” as well as featuring an internal lacing structure. This idea allows for a secure fit. This is ideal because foot-shoe motions especially in basketball provides athletes with flexibility in choice of loose-fit or tight-fitting sneakers which is very important in games. This internal lacing system will reduce the amount of motion within the shoe itself.

Furthermore, moving towards the outside of the shoe, the outsole contains traction pods, allowing for these shoes to be a great choice for hoopers! In terms of comfort, based on reviews, the Drake NOCTA x Nike Glide sneaker is comfortable and true to size. Additionally, for the wide-foot community, this sneaker will be a perfect shoe! Price-wise, this sneaker is more on the affordable side. Most sneakers range from $150 to $200, based on your size, the highest you may pay, even on the website "" is $200 plus tax. This is decent for a collaboration of this caliber! Would you wear the NOCTA x Glides?
