The Nike Flyknit Racer continues to be the silhouette in the vast Nike Flyknit range with the lowest number of colorways. It looks like the sneaker will see one more combo join its ranks soon enough, the rather calm looking pair pictured here. The sneaker is stripped of any popping colors and instead goes for a grey/white/black set up with a slight fade to it for the knitted upper.

Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

sneakernews top 30 2012 1a Sneaker News Top 30 of 2012

For better or worse, 2012 was a defining year for the sneaker world and all that it encompasses. It was a year that saw certain shoes throw the laws of supply and demand so out of whack, that brands and retailers had to completely rethink the way they sell shoes to the public just to keep the peace. If you were willing to put in some legwork or, better yet, had the right connections, it was a banner year for sneaker enthusiasts. “Must-have” releases seemed to be at an all-time high and nearly every weekend offered up some sort of temptation for consumers. 2012 saw the release of some of the most eagerly anticipated and passionately sought-after sneakers the game had ever seen and it’s safe to say that things will never be the same again.

In between those, there were plenty of other desirable targets along the way, from the special limited editions and collaborations to beloved Retro returns and promising new designs and innovations. There were even a few certified sleeper hits that organically carved out their place among the year’s best releases. Due to an exponentially expanding consumer base and a heightened level of product awareness, you might not have been able to get your hands on every shoe you hunted for in 2012, but there was certainly no shortage of solid alternatives ripe for the picking in their absence.

Nike Flyknit Named One Of The Best Inventions of 2012 by Time Magazine

nke flyknit racer release date Nike Flyknit Named One Of The Best Inventions of 2012 by Time Magazine

Time Magazine has just given a 2012 “year in review” of the best innovations across all industries – a list rife with robots, electric cars, body armor, and flight-enabling suits. Does Nike Flyknit deserve a spot on this list? According to the world’s largest circulated magazine, it certainly does; Time praises Nike’s creation of this single-thread weaved upper, pointing out the incredible lightweight build and waste-free manufacturing methods. Flyknit certainly brought something fresh and new to Nike Running, which spent most the last four years focused heavily on Lunar as its headlining creation. Of course, Nike wasn’t alone in the 2012-born ‘Knit’ concept as adidas unveiled its own PrimeKnit innovation in July, and the legal battle with Nike regarding “first dibs” on the matter has brought another level of awkward tension between the two rival brands. Should Time Magazine have pointed out “Knit” alone while giving praise to both Nike and adidas?

Nike Flyknit Racer + Trainer – Release Reminder

nike flyknit release reminder july Nike Flyknit Racer + Trainer   Release Reminder

It’s been a few years since Nike came through with a completely fresh idea, but the elongated stretch of time that was spent in Flyknit R&D certainly makes the wait all the more worth it. Tomorrow, Nike will launch the first wide general release of the Nike Flyknit in two models – the Flyknit Racer (two colorways) and the Flyknit Trainer (a whopping 10 colorways); Flyknit, as you know debuted in late February with a soft launch of the uber-limited HTM collection, so if you were one of the many Flyknit fans that missed out on any other three Collections (the third HTM Flyknit Collection dropped this morning at 1948), Nikestore will stock the entire collection tomorrow as will Nike locations like 21 Mercer and Nike Fukuoka in Japan. Continue reading for a final review of all twelve colorways and let us know which of the bunch is your favorite.

nke flyknit racer release date Nike Flyknit Racer   Release Date

Just a few moments ago Sneaker News hit you with the release date for the much-anticipated Nike Flyknit Collection – a solid 10-pair inundation of the Flyknit Trainer. Also releasing alongside the Trainer are two colorways of the Nike Flyknit Racer – one in Volt/Black and another in Orange/Grey. Clearly the design of the Flyknit Racer is distinct from the Flyknit Trainer, as the Racer features a larger Swoosh, a split color-blocking (lateral and medial are two different shades), and a pronounced heel-cup. Check below for more angles of both colorways and look out for these this Friday on Nikestore, retailing at $150.

nike flyknit racer preview 00 Nike Flyknit Racer Preview

Nike’s all-new Flyknit technology touches on its earliest running heritage of “lightweight” in a state-of-the-art ‘Knit’ upper that appeals to the “Woven” cult crowd, extending the ‘Flywire’ concept of 2008 and building the upper in one solid yet outstandingly breathable and lightweight upper. The Flyknit carpet was rolled out this past February and again in April with the limited-edition HTM capsules, but with more Flyknit releases on the way (confirmed by Nike to beginning hitting this season), all can enjoy the new Flyknit craze – particularly with these upcoming Flyknit Racer colorways. A mix of muted tones like tonal black and black/grey/white will be available, as will some juicier ones like the neon green/blue and bright orange. A nice viewing is just ahead, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more Nike Flyknit release information and updates. via sneakerfreaker
