Nike Daybreak Coffee Shoes
Singaporeans can’t seem to get enough of all things coffee. From our neighbourhood kopitiams to aesthetic hipster cafes, flat whites to kopi c gao siew dai, a cup of coffee can be enjoyed in different forms anywhere in this country. If you’re a self-proclaimed caffeine junkie, then these Nike coffee shoes will be of interest to you.
For kopi lovers who want to flex on their teh loyalist friends, Nike has got your back with its new Daybreak sneakers. These kicks are the latest addition to Nike’s growing collection of coffee-themed shoes.
Coffee-with-milk lovers probably won’t be able to resist immediately grabbing their wallets once they take a look at this shoe. The combination of the light brown suede and nylon base with the cream white tongue and heel tab mimics the colour of a deliciously crafted latte. Wearing these sneakers while sipping on a drink at Starbucks or the coffeeshop seems like a match made in heaven.
Enhancing the overall coffee theme, a “Roasted By Nike, Inc.” stamp is located on the back of the shoe. Buying the sneaker will feel like you’re getting a bag of freshly prepared atas coffee beans.
Fun fact: “Lot 97005” on the stamp is actually a reference to the postal code of Nike’s headquarters located in Beaverton, Oregon. As for the “SP21”, while there is no explicit confirmation from the brand, it is probably used to indicate that the kicks are part of Nike’s spring 2021 releases.
The prints on the insole of the sneakers are an absolute delight. I don’t think anyone will be able to look at the cat resting in a Nike mug and not scream: “kawaii!”
Even if you’re not a coffee drinker, the earthy tones of the shoe will be a perfect companion to any UNIQLO- or MUJI-style outfits.

These designs include the women’s Air Max Verona and Nike Blazer Mid ’77. The ever-popular Air Force 1 series also has a coffee edition, the Nike Air Force 1 ’07 LV8, which even has a speckled midsole that is meant to mimic coffee grounds. The sneakers dropped in Singapore earlier this year but have since sold out.
