Drake’s NOCTA sub-label is partnering with Nike to revive an overlooked Nike Air Zoom Drive silhouette from the late 1990s.
This upcoming NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive SP is rumored to arrive in two simple colorways: “Black” and “White” other are showing Grey colorway.
It is expected to feature a paneled mesh construction with ’90s detailing, a signature moderator underfoot plate, and co-branding logos.
The retail price for both colorways is set at $165, maybe 169,99€ for Europe and £159,95 for UK, and they are expected to release in men’s sizing during the Holiday 2023 season.
Drake has been taking inspiration from Nike’s archives to create his silhouettes, such as the Air Terra and the unnamed Zoom Flight 95-inspired model. Now, he is reviving the Nike Air Zoom Drive, a predecessor of the Air Presto designed by Tinker Hatfield during its development. The original model had a more traditional collar and construction but featured stretchy mesh for a “t-shirt” fit.
The NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive SP White will give the silhouette a clean makeover, while the “Black White” colorway will keep things simple with a black and white color scheme.
While Drake’s NOCTA sub-label has not made as big of an impact as both Nike and Drake would have liked, the partnership between the two continues to take an archival approach to footwear. The NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive SP is expected to feature a more premium construction than its predecessor, with added NOCTA flair.
The shoe will come with special packaging marking the release and will be available through Nike, NOCTA, and select retailers online and in-store.
