The absolute chokehold that Multi-colored Flyknit had on the sneaker game was indescribable. Once every few years, Nike creates a new colorway that sneaker fans simply can’t get enough of — the South Beaches, Breds, what have you — and in 2012, the inception of Flyknit added new dimension to the idea of color-blocking. Shoes were now built with materials made of a knits made of recycled materials, and rather than painting one piece, the uppers were now a blotchy blend of hues made of thousands of yarns.
The first-ever Multi-color Flyknit shoe came with the Nike Flyknit Trainer, and the palette itself was actually a bit more vivid than what you see here. This softer version debuted in 2013 with the Flyknit Racer, and there wasn’t a single sneakerhead out there that wasn’t obsessed. Nike was no exception, as “Multi-Color” was often used, catching the eye of the holy triumvirate known as HTM for their special edition pieces.
While the Flyknit Racer (or even the Flyknit Trainer) isn’t back anytime soon, Nike is whetting appetites of Flyknit fanatics with the Air Max Flyknit Racer. It takes on that award-winning running shoe and tacks on the Air Max Pre-Day sole and some added pieces via leather foxing and pull-tab at the heel as well as a semi-floating lace collar.
This is currently a women’s release, so stay tuned for further details and enjoy the official images below.
