UPDATE: The dawn of a new lunar year – the year of the rooster – is almost upon us, and Nike are celebrating with this heated Flyknit Racer. Dubbed the 'Fire Rooster', the sneaker is set ablaze with deep reds and a hint of orange on the instep. You'll need to be an early bird to grab this one, so keep it locked to Nike stockists like Titolo when it drops on January 27.
UPDATE: A few weeks after first seeing this Nike Flyknit Racer, some exciting new information has come through. Turns out the 'University Red' runner is a Chinese New Year release donned the 'Fire Rooster' (which is markedly more interesting), and will landing on the SNKRS page of Nike online on January 27. Get ready!
The Nike Flyknit Racer is a certifiably satisfactory sneaker for anyone who wants to get styling on the run or at the café. The new burgundy colourway comes in hot and heavy, with a scalding mix of rich red, back and white. Mega minimalism is the key to the silhouette, with a stripped back woven upper, Flywire supports and a slim, wedged midsole – you’d hardly know you were wearing them if it weren’t for all the crew out there eyeballing you with admiration and envy.
The new Nike Flyknit Racer ‘University Red’ will be dropping on February 27 at select stockists and online from NDC.
