A low-profile performance runner that debuted in 1979, Nike‘s Daybreak is living a second life as a popular casual sneaker thanks to clean in-line releases and successful UNDERCOVER collaborations. Now, it’s surfaced in a rustic “Orange/Pueblo Brown” mix. Combining classic materials with its smoky sunrise tones, this new take on the Daybreak presents a versatile style that’s simultaneously sultry and sleek.
Most Daybreaks use a nylon base with suede overlays, but this pair opts for a fully lifestyle-geared look, using a burnt orange suede base with a textured light brown leather heel and toebox overlays. Another brownish-orange shade is present on the Swoosh, heel tab and eyestays — the former of which uses a shaggy suede while the latter two opt for the same leather construction as the mudguard and heel counter.
Aged sail tongues with exposed foam detailing and a yellow embroidered Nike text hit on the heel further the flair. A sail EVA midsole with a classic waffle-patterned black rubber outsole completes the look.
The Nike Daybreak “Orange/Pueblo Brown” is available now at stockists like Goodhood for a tax-included price of $115.70.
Elsewhere in the world of Nike Sportswear, the Air Max 90’s 30th anniversary is being celebrated with new silhouettes like the Air Max 90 FlyEase, Air Max Verona and Air Max 2090.
