This 'Nike Flyknit Racer Acai Berry' colorway will soon be hitting shelves, with the superfood fruit as its main inspiration. Although the immensely popular Flyknit Racer has been released in various colors and themes, The Acai Berry version is the brand's most creative to date.

When looking at the Racer's exterior, the connection to the fruit is made clear. The dark burgundies and purple hues create a visual of Acai berries, with tremendous detail put into the sneaker's texture and colors. The sneaker has an extremely distinct gradient of colors as well as a unique and detailed texture pattern.

The mid-November release of this particular Flyknit Racer is reflective of the season, with a deep, dark red colorway that resembles the foliage of the fall.
