This past February, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield, and Mark Parker came together to officially launch Nike FlyKnit, a revolutionary new method of construction that utilized yarns and fabrics engineered for use only where it was needed. This amplified running shoe was first released as part of the Nike HTM FlyKnit collection, which included the Nike HTM FlyKnit Trainer and HTM FlyKnit Racer in extremely limited quantities. After a second successful wave of releases in April, HTM comes together for a third package to commemorate the start of the 2012 London Olympics; on July 26th, Nike will release the third Nike HTM FlyKnit Collection exclusively at Nike Sportswear 1948 in London, followed by a global launch at other locations in late August. Six colorways of the Nike HTM FlyKnit Collection will be available so take a look at all six below and stay tuned for more FlyKnit updates here on Sneaker News.
