Nike is all about innovation, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, and transforming the athletic landscape for the better. Fortunately, they’re also interested in bringing that same enthusiastic approach to the genres of health and wellness, introducing a number of functional footwear pieces catered toward post-workout recovery. Now, the brand has revealed its next vision of laid-back lavishness — the ‘Offline’ Mule Slide.
The ‘Offline’ is an interesting take on Nike’s contemporary athleisure silhouettes. It boasts a half-sneaker/half-slide design that’s been dubbed as the “anti-sneaker” of the company’s robust catalog and features a mule-inspired construction that’s experimental, yet tangible. To help you dial down after a day of strenuous work, the Offline calls upon two unique sensory drop-in midsoles, each catered toward a feeling or mood. The first, known as Sensation 001, features a set of strategically placed nubs that gently massage the wearer’s foot while in use, promoting increased blood flow, tension release, and relaxation. Sensation 002, on the other hand, has adopted a more voluminous nub pattern for long-term wear, allowing users to utilize the Offline as a traditional WFH, or informal office shoe. Pricing and availability are still unknown, so keep an eye on Nike’s various channels for an impending release on August 28.
