The Nikelab Payaa ($100) is based on an old school silhouette. Based on the payaaqek, a minimalist alaskan boot, the Payaa exemplifies simplicity. The upper is made from a single piece of stretchy material, enclosed by a lacing system that provides a comfortable sock-like fit. The injected sole combines the midsole and the outsole. Additional features include heel support, leather insole, and foam collar for premium support. So if you’re looking for a minimal shoe that stands out, this has got to be the pair for you.
