Subscribing to the school of minimalism that’s headlined by shoes like the Air Presto and Roshe Run, the Nike Payaa boasts a one-piece mesh build that’s secured with bungee-style laces and wraps the ankle in a bootie-like construction. That striking upper is built atop a sole unit that combines midsole and outsole into a single piece, remarkably similar to the unit that’s currently starring on the Hyperfr3sh.
The shoe appears poised for a winter launch, but it looks to be a superb summer silhouette. Still, anytime NikeLab sees fit to drop the shoe — and it sounds like it’ll be quite soon — we’ll be lining up to grab a pair. Check out a slew of photos of the first four colorways below, and stay tuned for launch info.
Update 10/1: Six initial colorways of the Nike Payaa release on October 2. You can buy them here on Nike.com.
