Nike‘s timeless Daybreak may be kicking off its sixth decade on the market, but the brand keeps finding ways to reinvent one of its longest-standing running sneakers — the latest of which is this SP “Teal Tint” colorway. Blending a heritage Nike Sportswear shape with new-age Nike Running materials like translucent TPE, this Daybreak leans fully into its modern-day status as a lifestyle favorite.
The “Teal Tint” hue that gives this model its name is present on the see-through quarters, collar and toebox, making for a style that’s cool and breezy in both a literal and figurative sense. Although this alternate fabrication is decidedly new-jack, the mudguard, heel overlay and eyestays are made of traditional light tan suede. Rich navy is used for the printed midfoot Swooshes, and also appears on the suede heel tab underneath a light blue Nike spell-out.
Tongues are made of an eggshell-toned TPE and feature an old-school Nike Sportswear badge, contrasting with the insole’s branded motifs. Trim white EVA foam midsoles and Bill Bowerman‘s legendary black waffle rubber outsoles complete the style.
For a flat $100 USD, This Nike Daybreak SP “Teal Tint” will release via Nike SNKRS China on May 22, but it’s currently available in other regions, like Nike HK. An Eastern release should follow in the coming weeks as well.
Moving from running to hoops, Jordan Brand‘s Air Jordan 11 Low is ready to release in a “Concord Sketch” colorway.
