The Nike Toki first surfaced in 2009 as the Nike Air Zoom Toki. The first release of the Toki was a Tier Zero exclusive and came with premium upper materials and Zoom Air cushioning. If the Toki looks a little familiar, there is good reason for that. The Nike Toki is a essentially a hybrid creation by mixing the upper of the Nike Air Sabaku with the vulcanized outsole of the tried and trued Nike Blazer.
