Drake's long-awaited It's All a Blur tour finally kicked off in Chicago this week and is already producing headline-worthy news across the board. Amongst those headlines is a first look at an unreleased Nike NOCTA sneaker, which the rapper confirmed to be the Hot Step 2 on Instagram.

The initial looks aren't particularly detailed but serve as a good indicator of what to expect when the shoe arrives at retail. Spotted in vibrant orange and green colorways, the Hot Step 2 features wavy, flowing lines on the upper along with metallic insets. The silhouette appears to once again be on the "chunkier" side, in line with last year's predecessor.

As of now, a confirmed release date for the Hot Step 2 hasn't been announced. Next up for Drake, Nike, and NOCTA is the Glide, a Zoom Flight 95-inspired model that's expected to launch in August.

UPDATE (03/15): After it was initially rumored to arrive this summer, the "Total Orange" NOCTA x Nike Hot Step 2 just launched via SNKRS "Shock Drop" for $200. At the time of writing, select sizes of the sneaker have sold out, and there's currently no indication if a restock will happen.

UPDATE (03/29): After releasing as a "Shock Drop" earlier this month, Nike has confirmed that the "Total Orange" NOCTA x Nike Hot Step 2 is launching again on April 4 via SNKRS for $200. Grab a closer look at the shoe below.
