If you can’t quite grasp the heightening of the senses when a product of this magnitude is served up to you on a perfectly formed plate, just try to imagine what it’d feel like if all the Food Network Iron Chefs served you breakfast in bed. In late February, an event of similar greatness went down at 21 Mercer, as Mark Parker and Hiroshi Fujiwara presented the all-new Nike Flyknit to a select group of invitees. The Nike HTM Flyknit Racer and Nike HTM Flyknit Trainer grabbed the attention of progressively-minded fashion buffs and sneakerheads, and the uber-limited units sold out immediately to an eager crowd that was ready to explore the all-new Flyknit technology.
Nike just unveiled the second installment of the Nike HTM Flyknit Collection; once again, it features a trio of Flyknit models (the Flyknit Racer and two Flyknit Trainers) – the Racer in a blazing hot Total Orange and the two Trainers mixed with White/Black and Grey/Volt. These were available yesterday, April 17th, in Milan at Nike Stadium Milano, but additional releases will go down at select spots on April 22nd (21 Mercer in NYC, 1948 in London, Nike Harajuku in Tokyo, and Dover Street Market in Ginza).
