Actor and comedian Kevin Hart is also a well-known fitness enthusiast. In January, Hart announced he had a signature shoe, a training silhouette, on the way with Nike. The first colorway of that shoe now has a release date.
The Nike Free Train Instinct Hart features an all-black upper, midsole and outsole, with hints of red, blue and gold throughout the shoe. Red and blue both make appearances on the shoe’s insoles, and red appears on the upper in the Flywire cables that act as eyelets. Gold appears on the shoe’s tongue in the “H” and “Hustle Hart” branding.
But the most noticeable characteristics of the shoes are the comedian’s inspirational quotes written throughout each upper — 23 in total — which includes phrases such as “Health Is Wealth,” “Find Your Inner Athlete,” “Success Is a Mindset,” and “Keep Pushing to be the Best Version of Yourself.”
For the athletes who will use the shoes for their intended training purposes, the shoe features a warp knit upper that will keep the foot locked in during lateral movements, and a Free midsole that expands on every landing.
