It was just last week that Nike unveiled its new Flyknit technology, and already the first crop of sneakers featuring the groundbreaking material has come and gone.  A key part of that set was the Nike Fly Knit Racer NRG in a colorway that applies a modified USA palette to this HTM-imagined design.  Athletes at the Olympic trials in August had the opportunity to put this new model into action, but it’ll be harder for sneakerheads in the States to do the same now that the super-limited run has left 21 Mercer and the two overseas spots so fast that they’re already selling for just south of a grand on the resale market.  Stick with Sneaker News as the coming London Olympics will bring a wider release this summer and check out some new images in the meantime.  via EUkicks

what type of running would they best be suited for

Lightweight is good; Nike got the upper right, but still too much cushioning especially in the midsole. In an age where we are starting to realize our feet have been weakened by wearing heavily cushioned shoes for running, the move to minimals is what new technology is pitted against. People want light, but more and more they want to strengthen their feet and legs, not support them with cushioning. Perhaps this is one step closer to a truly minimal shoe for Nike. :)

These look super dope. If they hold up as well as Nike is saying they do, I can't wait to grab a pair. Look great for summertime chill.

@Annie minimal shoes are horrible stability wise though no professional would recommend free runs in a race or long distance run(plus minimal shoes are comfortable at first but if you are overpronated like me they hurt after an hour of use)
