Nike’s Flyknit Racer is back. Well, kind of. Previewed earlier this Spring in a simple black and white colorway, the upcoming Air Max Flyknit Racer hybrid has now emerged in the beloved ‘Multicolor’ knit pattern, coming soon.

Nike’s Air cushioning technology and Flyknit materials are two of the most innovative advancements in footwear development. Released decades apart, the two still stand as some of the most popular Swoosh projects of all time, and soon, they will be joining forces for something special. The recently revealed Air Max Flyknit Racer combines the best of both worlds, taking the upper from the fan-favorite runner, sprucing it up a bit, and planting it on top of the Air Max midsole recently introduced on the Pre-Day silhouette, 2022’s contribution to the Air Max Day celebration. Updated with more support along the midfoot and heel sections, the new Air Racer has recently emerged in the beloved ‘Multicolor’ knit pattern that made Flyknit so famous.


Nike’s rainbow-colored version of the new Air Racer has not yet been announced for release, though they will likely be a part of the new silhouette’s debut drop. The hybrid silhouette is still largely under wraps by the Swoosh, though they are anticipated to release from both Nike and select retailers, with a price tag of $160. Check out the official images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
