Theres a new shoe in town (Picture Nike/Crocs)

Nike has unveiled a new summertime trainer that looks rather familiar to another seasonal shoe.

The sportswear brand just revealed its Air Force 1 VTF trainers – the newest edition of its popular Air Force 1 range – but people have been quick to call out their similarity to controversial shoe brand Crocs.

The Air Force 1 VTFs are made up of black leather, rubber soles and gold detailing, but, most noticeably, they have a slingback heel strap – echoing the famous rubber shoe design.

Somewhere in between a trainer and a sandal, the new shoe has all the same components of an Air Force 1 at the front, but it sports this unique sandal/Crocs hybrid at the back.

According to the product description, the shoes have all of the elements of the classic look in a sling back design.

The sportswear brand also says the elastic strap is easy to take on and off. Stylish and functional, then.

The hybrid trainers are selling for $90 (£74), meaning theyre almost double the price of Crocs – which usually cost around $44 (£36).

Its probably also worth noting that Nike are currently only selling in kids sizes, up to up to age seven – so bad news for adults look to get a pair.

Another found the Croc-inspired makeover hilarious, saying: Nike have invented a sneak/sandal for the roadman. Nike airforce sandal.
