First released in 1979 alongside the similarly-shaped Tailwind, the Daybreak is one of Nike‘s most classic running silhouettes. More than 40 years later the design is living a second life as a beloved casual sneaker — thanks in part to UNDERCOVER’s 2019 collaborations — and its’s now combining past and present with a “Topaz Gold” colorway. With a signature straight last and recognizable shape, these “new classic” Daybreaks combine two vastly divergent eras of Nike Running in undeniably appealing fashion.

Uppers trade out a standard mesh base in favor of a translucent TPE material with a flat red Swoosh painted directly on its side. This appealing material substitution is offset by traditional gold suede overlays on the heel, forefoot and eyestays alike. TPE tongues offer a Nike Sportswear-style badge, and the aforementioned red Swoosh runs up into a red heel tab with a printed yellow Nike hit. Down below, white EVA foam midsoles with OG black waffle outsoles finalize the style.

The Nike Daybreak SP “Topaz Gold” will release at retailers like 43einhalb on May 1, and retails for $100 USD.
