Nike’s beloved 80s running shoe was revamped and rereleased earlier this year in fine Flyknit form for optimum performance.
Four years of research into how to create a snug-fit running shoe that offered flexibility, precise support and breathability without overburdening the ultra-light build definitely paid off. Runners praise the Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer’s featherweight foot-feel, while streetwear savants appreciate its sharp aesthetic and pared-back colourways.
In ‘Royal Blue’ – anchored with black laces, heel cage, Swoosh and a lick of black across the midsole – the sneaker looks especially smart. Expect this blue speed demon to drop late October.
