When he isn’t on stage performing his hilarious spiels or filming his next big comedy blockbuster, Kevin Hart is busy making performance cross-training shoes with Nike. He is one of the few actor-entertainers with a signature shoe deal.
His first signature shoe is the Nike Free Train Instinct “Hart,” aka the Hustle Hart. The first colorway of the shoe was released in June. The second and third colorway is set to arrive this weekend.
According to Nike.com, the Crimson colorway of the Nike Free Train Instinct “Hart” is inspired by the fiery and passionate nature of Hart’s son, Hendrix. Meanwhile, the Blue colorway pays homage to the serene and thoughtful nature of Hart’s daughter, Heaven.
The Crimson and Blue colorways of the Nike Free Train Instinct “Hart” feature metallic gold swooshes on both the medial and lateral sides. The tongue and exterior midsole are also in metallic gold.
Hart instructed Nike to outfit the shoe with 23 of his favorite inspirational fitness quotes like “Find Your Inner Athlete,” “Don’t Stop Grinding” and “Keep Pushing To Be The Best Version of Yourself.” The reflective quotes are set in place to help inspire wearers to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Sneaker News reported that Hart’s first signature shoe consists of a warp knit upper and a Dynamic Flywire lacing system. The eight Flywire loops run all the way down to the midsole and will hug the foot like glue when laced properly.
The Dynamic Flywire ensures lockdown fit during hard cuts and quick change of movements. Its dual-density Dynamic Free midsole provides plush cushioning and will expand on each landing.
The Crimson and Blue colorways of the Nike Free Train Instinct Hart will be available on the Nike SNKRS app for $140 starting this Saturday, July 16. It will release alongside the Air Jordan 1 Retro Low No Swoosh White and Air Jordan 14 Retro Oxidized Green.
