Chukka Slip Anthracite is the Smoothest

It’s smooth and futuristic, so Chukka Slip Anthracite is Nike in a nutshell. The noticeable change in this release is seen in a higher cut and silhouette.

The mock high-top takes on the lightness of a running shoe with the look of a football sneaker/cleat. Still, the super treads make the Chukka Slip Anthracite a sure bet for both leisure wearers and athletes alike.

Wrapped up in VaporMax

VaporMax drops the laces and welcomes a sporty wrap for a supreme fit for the Chukka Slip Anthracite. A fierce, white-knuckled grip of the new synthetic wrap complements the supreme grip of the VaporMax treads.

The three-point fit attaches at the instep, side of the foot, and down around the heel. Laces are hardly missed with the fresh, snug fit of the wrap. With the newly covered quarter panel, the trademark white Swoosh is painted at its normal location.

Flex and Reflect

Chukka Slip Anthracite has two jobs: to flex, and reflect.  The new wrap lets the shoe flex its muscles while silver accents serve as key reflective elements.

The grey and black pattern, reminiscent of Nike’s signature elephant print, adds to the color play of the shoe. The colorway is everything, and with reflective detail and a super-smooth print, the Chukka Slip design is on its way to becoming a silhouette that everybody wants.

Two the Max

One color hardly does the Chukka Slip justice, so in addition to Anthracite, Pure Platinum is also available for those looking for a lighter, brighter colorway.
