Nike Aina Chukka – Burgandy Leather

An excellent new make up of the Aina Chukka has made it to the UK. “Nike have been getting their chukka-on lately after the success of the Zoom Toki. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the union of their old-world Woven look on a chukka-cut, but this is an altogether more subdued affair that builds on the appeal of premium pieces like the Royal Mid that have had some popularity lately. The Aina Chukka does it’s job well with a certain dignity, making for a casual introduction for a model that’s destined to reappear in future lines
