UPDATE: Overkill have given us a look at the new 'Volt' Flyknit Racer, it's looking a fair bit greener in the light of day. Nevertheless, a slick looking runner and it just dropped online. Click on down to Overkill and see if you can snag a size.
Nike’s inaugural foray into Flyknit boomed back in 2012 with the Flyknit Racer. One of the colourways that really made a statement at the time was the hi-vis ‘Volt’ yellow, which has burned its way into the back of our minds. While not an exact replica of the OG, the new Flyknit Racer Volt in pretty dang close, and definitely deserving of a spot in the rotation as far as we’re concerned. The vibrant Volt yarns have been intertwined with black for a bold contrast. The slim sole unit completes the all round slick silhouette so you can race to the gym, the café or the fridge – you just do you.
The Nike Flyknit Racer ‘Volt’ looks like an August drop, we’ll keep you posted when the drop date comes up.
