New Naomi Osaka shoes by Nike: Mismatched pair with dragons and flowers


Nike has unveiled the latest Naomi Osaka shoes, a premium GP Challenge 1 model inspired by Japan. The asymmetrical design seamlessly blends the great strength, power, and good luck of a mythical dragon on the right shoe with the calming aura of some of the tennis star’s favorite flowers on the left.

Details about new Naomi Osaka shoes

Both shoes feature metallic accents, including the “NO” logo on the tongue and detailed contours in the print. The Swoosh, one half of the toe area, and the lace straps are blue on one shoe and bright crimson on the other, creating a mismatched effect.

Besides unique aesthetics, the Nike GP Challenge 1 Osaka women’s tennis shoe delivers an exceptional, bouncy feel underfoot, thanks to Zoom Air units strategically placed in the heel and forefoot for superior cushioning and responsiveness. Additionally, a strong midfoot TPU plate ensures stability for quick cuts and powerful movements, while the lightweight upper provides excellent support and a secure, locked-in feel.

Durability is an important feature, with extra rubber in the toe area, specifically on the big-toe side, for increased longevity. High-abrasion rubber in the forefoot enhances durability and traction, while the heel is designed for rocker-like movements, perfect for actions such as pulling back for a serve.

The padded tongue adds plush comfort, and the U-shape entry makes these Naomi Osaka shoes by Nike easy to put on, rounding out a design that blends aesthetics with high performance.

New Naomi Osaka x Nike collection

In addition to the new tennis shoes, Nike has unveiled the latest collection in their Naomi Osaka line. This season, the Japanese player’s style features a sophisticated palette of beige, black, and white. The collection includes ruched midi skirts, mock-neck crop tops, cardigans, oversized short-sleeved tops, and high-waisted shorts. The previous collection offered a blend of fluffy fabrics and satin in earthy brown and refreshing mint hues.
