Date: March 2022
Key Products: Nike NOCTA Hot Step

The NOCTA apparel line has been a great introductory offering, but, as you may expect, people have been clamoring for some footwear. On March 3, fans finally got their wish with the launch of the first two colorways for the Hot Step. The original silhouette complete with details like 3M piping and colorful Air units is meant to nod to trainers from late ‘90s. It even borrows the sole from 1999’s Air Terra Humara, albeit with slight modifications. It debuted in monochromatic black or white color schemes, but other photos of Drake wearing the silhouettes indicate that more extravagant options like black and yellow or a pair covered in tan python print will be coming down. And a Certified Lover Boy-themed Air Force 1 complete with a heart-shaped tread pattern and “Love you forever” written on the midsole are reportedly arriving in 2022. Until those get confirmed though, the Hot Step will have to suffice.
