Colorfully Knitted Running Shoes

Nike's Air Max Flyknit Racer Sneaker Gets a Multi-Color Makeover

— May 27, 2022 — Lifestyle
Just in time for the summer season to roll around the corner, Nike introduces a new tonal iteration of the signature Air Max Flyknit Racer model in a multi-color finish. This marks the second version of the shoe, which is a hybrid design that blends together the 2012 Flyknit Racer and the Air Max Pre-Day sneaker model.

It is made up of a lightweight knitted upper that rests on top of a revised sole unit held together with paneling accents. The Flyknit upper is made up of colorful hues that feature black, Pink Blast, Photo Blue, and Ghost Green together. It rests upon matte black leather materials that panel throughout the eye stays and the heel counter sections. The Swoosh branding on the lateral side is also applied via knitting.
