After delivering specialty offerings such as the MMW 005 Slide with Matthew M Williams and playful Uptempo Slides, Nike now returns with its latest open-toe sandal, the Calm Slide.
Found in a clean and simple design, the pairs look to be crafted with one-piece EVA materials featuring a moulded Swoosh-branded strap and grooves on the footbed and bottoms. Early reactions to the Calm Slides are mixed with many accusing Nike of copying the bulky silhouette and rounded grooves of the YEEZY Slides while others simply like them better. So far, five colorways have surfaced including “Black,” “Sail,” “Sesame,” “Geode Teal,” and “Jade Ice.” With adidas finding success with its very own Adilette 22 slides and ASICS introducing its popular ACTIBREEZE 3D slides last summer, Nike now arrives with its own flagship model as a late entry in the same segment.
Take a closer look at alternative Nike Calm Slide colorways below. The pairs are expected to arrive in the coming months for $50 USD.
