Update: Summer has nearly touched down and Nike is gearing up for the warm weather with a bevy of new silhouettes â€” including the Calm Slide. Previewed previously, the Calm Slide is debuting with five monochromatic colorways suited for summertime. While Nike has yet to officially announce the new slip-on, its official imagery has been shared. Release is scheduled for July 14 at a price of $50 USD each. Stay tuned for more info and be sure to check out our initial coverage below.
Found in a clean and simple design, the pairs look to be crafted with one-piece EVA 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 â€œBlack,â€ â€œSail,â€ â€œSesame,â€ â€œGeode Teal,â€ and â€œJade Ice.â€ With adidas finding success with its very own Adilette 22 slides and ASICSÂ introducing its popular ACTIBREEZE 3D slides last summer, Nike now arrives with its own flagship model as a late entry in the segment.
The pairs are expected to arrive in the coming months for $50 USD.
