Paying homage to both heritage and innovation, we've blended 2 icons (old and new) to go beyond what's expected in the Nike Air Max Flyknit Racer. Incredibly light and airy Flyknit is paired with oh-so-comfy Air Max cushioning. Lace up and let your feet do the talking.
Retro Super Power
Inspired by the 2012 FK Racer, the featherweight, form-fitting Flyknit upper is as revolutionary as it is good looking. Plus, the nearly seamless design adds a sporty edge.
Best Made Better
The modernised look of the Pre-Day tooling fits perfectly with this mash-up of heritage meets innovation. With its chiselled heel and expressive window around the Air Max cushioning (originally designed for performance running), it delivers a fresh take on tried-and-tested comfort.
Nike Air Max Origins
Revolutionary Air technology first made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Air Max 1 debuted with visible Air technology in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air cushioning suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking colour combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
