UPDATE: New images are in! Nike's splicing of Flyknit Racer and Mariah genomes has produced a tidy hybrid that boasts the best features of each. The Swoosh are yet to drop a line with an exact release date, but these images from Aphrodite show they've already got a hold of the shoe, and size? are expected to stock the shoe before the month is out.
The good folks at size? have just released their June preview, and it contains a special new hybrid. Beaverton’s best have taken the Air Mariah, a model thought to inform the Flyknit Racer, and reimagined it as a whole new beast – the Air Zoom Flyknit Mariah Racer. With a similar design DNA, the models fuse effortlessly into a compelling new build. The Flyknit Racer’s shape has been used as the starting point, but the shoe mostly borrows from the Mariah – with the runner’s heel counter and midsole featuring prominently. One colourway harks back to the blue, white and red tones the Mariah is known for, while the other comes in a classic ‘Black/White’ option.
No exact release date is set for the Nike Air Zoom Flyknit Mariah Racer, but you can expect it to land in June through size? online.
