Taking its name from the Rift Valley, Nike’s innovative runner was designed back in 1995 to meet the needs of the Kenyan running team who preferred a more natural stride. What first began as a unique performance feature quickly transformed into a distinctive silhouette that was much loved by sneakerheads.

The split toe shoe has undergone a one-of-a-kind makeover at the hands of Brazilian fashion designer Pedro Lourenco. Inspired by the traditions of his home country, the pair is dressed in an all white upper, a colour worn for New Year’s eve in Brazil.

There’s also been some amendments to the shoe’s synthetic leather upper with the addition of a glossy enamel coating. It makes for an angelic design that looks fresh and premium.  Unfortunately, for many sneakerheads this may be one pair that you won’t be able to enjoy.
