Nike has revived the early-2000s Air Kukini, bringing back a handful of the classic colorways alongside new ones. This week, the ‘Water’ blue look has surfaced online, set to release later this year.

Nike’s retro releases of the Air Kukini slip-on have yet to make their way to stateside shelves, but we have already seen a number of colorways expected to release as a part of the silhouette’s revival. Among them are a handful of the shoe’s original colorways, now including the ‘Water’ look that popped up on sneaker blogs across the internet earlier today. One of the Kukini’s first color schemes, this pair mixes Coast blue with wavy white accents across the neoprene upper to mimic the look of moving water. The pair also features a clear plastic cage piece, and black suede overlays to complete the look.


Nike’s next classic colorway of the Air Kukini has not yet been announced for release, though they are expected to drop before 2022 is over. The ‘Water’ look originally released in 2000, and will be available from both Nike’s official channels and select retailers for $120. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Swoosh release news.
