Nike is introducing a new women’s lifestyle sneaker in 2023 called the Runtekk, which draws on running models from the 2000s and Y2K-era tech aesthetics, according to an internal brand document viewed by Complex. The Runtekk will debut in the summit white/metallic silver colorway shown here (style code FD0736-100) as part of Nike’s Fall 2023 line.

Nike did not respond to a request for comment on the upcoming shoe and usually does not comment on product leaks.

The women’s Runtekk features a chunky sole unit that gives it a dad shoe-look and a combination of mesh and synthetic panels on the upper that evoke Nike running sneakers from the late 2000s.

The Runtekk could arrive as soon as July, but its release window is subject to change. The shoe will be available on Nike’s SNKRS app and at its “neighborhood” retail partners. The Runtekk will be in Nike’s line for at least three seasons, through Spring 2024.

The Runtekk retails at $110 and will be available in sizes from women’s 5 to 16.5, according to the brand document.
