Do you think you have every Nike Flyknit-based sneaker jotted down in your memory? There’s a lot more out there than what you might gather immediately, so Sneaker News has compiled every Nike sneaker with Flyknit Technology and placed them in chronological order for you to get familiar with. As a whole, the SN team has been big on Flyknit since the technology first debuted in early 2012, naming the overall innovation as the third most significant sneaker story of 2012 (beat out by the Air Yeezy 2 and Galaxy Foamposites). We understood the significance of the material since it would not be restricted to a few models, but that it would open up an entire category for the brand to toy around with.
Starting with the initial release of the Nike Flyknit Racer in the rare USA colorway as well as the 100-pair-only Nike Flyknit Trainer HTM and looking forward to the confirmed release of the Nike Kobe 9 Elite, the series of Flyknit is rather vast and quite honestly, the nomenclature can get a tad confusing. There are only so many ways to pull in Lunar and Flyknit together in a name and even the brand itself gets tripped up at times! We’ve seen the material branch out into other forms as well, adapting a sock-like build in the Hyperfeel and playing a role in the structure of the upcoming Kobe 9 model.
