For a shoe whose name refers to a creature with an extremely short lifespan, the Nike Mayfly has been out there for a good while. Debuting in 2004 with its name a reference to the ethereal nature of its 4.8oz build (this was in the days before Hyperfuse, Flywire, or LunarLon, mind you), the Mayfly was suggested for use up to 62 miles. Here we see the silhouette gain a second wind with the Nike Mayfly Woven arriving in four monotone suede Quickstrikes just in time for the start of fall. Your choice of black, navy, brown or grey styles (the last of which is a new revelation) has all the neutral bases covered with each riding white soles, so check them out in detail after the jump, then hit your overseas connects because they’re available at select Asian retailers like Nike Harajuku.

The Nike Mayfly is as ethereal as its name would suggest, weighing in at an astoundingly light 4.8oz. As far as its lifespan, though, this shoe has been its namesake’s exact opposite, as the Mayfly continues to release, if sporadically, over the 2000s. The Mayfly Woven is the version with which we’ve most recently become accustomed, and following up on last year’s Tier Zero debut do comes a trio of suede styles that ditch the caramel accents for tonal leather heel strips. All three ride white soles and are depicted individually below, so take a closer look at each upcoming Mayfly Woven Quickstrike and stick with Sneaker News for updates on these styles just released to select Asian Nike Sportswear dealers.
