The upper of low-top Nike Benassi Slip is made of single piece ultra-soft suede which delivers a sock-like fit and minimizes irritation. Its mesh collar provides breathability and support. The Nike Benassi Slip is available US men’s sizing.

While it cannot be exactly regarded as an eye-catcher, the modest design of the low-top Nike Benassi Slip also has its advantages. Because of its silhouette and color schemes, this slip-on is a natural match with joggers, casual pants, and shorts. Whether doing groceries, working out in a gym, or just strolling, wearing the Nike Benassi Slip is an easy choice.  

Two materials contribute to the impressive cushioning of the Nike Benassi Slip, the IP (Injected Phylon) on the midsole and the re-engineered sockliner. On its outsole, the herringbone cupsole offers traction and flexibility.

As early as 1984, Bill Bowerman, the Nike brand’s co-founder, wanted to produce a sock-like shoe. Due to the innovations in technology, the concept of a sock-like shoe had come to fruition in various models. Nike Air Moc, Nike Presto, Nike Free, and Nike Roshe are some examples of shoes that are stripped of unnecessary materials, in exchange for a light and seamless wear.

One of the additions to Nike's catalog of slip-on shoes is the Nike Benassi Slip. Released in 2012, its silhouette and material construction have been revered by many customers, including people with physical issues that affect their walking.  

  • Its suede vamp strap bears a resemblance to the classic Benassi sandal design.
