Nike Vista Lite History

The year 2019 was defined as the age of bulky, oversized, and dad silhouettes. Several shoes, both retro and new designs, came out with a chunky midsole. Among them is the Nike Zoom X Vista Grind, which was released on July 4 of 2019. It was a brand new silhouette that is driven by innovation and inspired by the culture. 

Following the footstep of the Vista Grind, the Nike Vista Lite was launched in January 2020. Unlike the Vista Grind, it does not have cut-out windows on the midsole. It utilizes a soft foam EVA pad for cushioning, but it does not have the Zoom tech like its predecessors.  

Compared to the Vista Grind, the Vista Lite offers a more lightweight feel and a more streamlined look. It is sold at an affordable price too. It has a rubber outsole with a waffle tread that ensures a superior grip and stability.
