Just like the crustacean its’s named after, this Daybreak Type is dressed in a wide array of rich red tones. Dark red is used on the see-through mesh quarter panels and toeboxes, while crimson suede appears on the mudguard, forefoot overlays, eyestays and heel clip. There’s even a pinkish-red salmon tone that can be seen on the leather heel tab. Branding is supplied by printed white midfoot Swooshes plus blue N.354 hits on the aforementioned heel tab and the exposed foam tongue’s fabric tag. Blue insoles feature a hand-drawn Swoosh, white laces secure the top half and the look is completed by white EVA midsoles and black outsoles that use Bill Bowerman‘s classic waffle tread pattern.
The Nike Daybreak Type “Lobster” is available via the Nike webstore now, and is priced at $90 USD.
