Nike’s Flyknit kicks in bold new colors just in time for the Olympics
Launching just a few miles from Olympic Park, Nike’s latest take on their already incredible HTM Flyknit trainers sees the ultra lightweight shoe take new shape in a fresh set of hues. The HTM Trainer+ collection—designed by Hiroshi Fujiwara, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker—arrives to Nike 1948 London this Thursday, where it will sell in limited supply in six colors that really enhance the shoe’s unique fabric construction.
Backed by Nike’s trademark Lunarlon cushioning system, the intricately woven HTM Trainer+ kicks are the ultimate meeting ground for form and function. The solids—a neon yellow Volt, basic black, bright blue and red—allow you to really see the shoe’s near seamless construction, a design element that allows the shoe to fit like a second skin. The two multi-color patterned kicks show off the complexity of the knitting technology, which uses a specially engineered yarn to create the most in breathability and performance.
The third installment of the HTM Flyknit collection, the pared down but equally bold HTM Trainer+ version will first hit the Shoreditch store 26 July 2012 before landing in Nike stores around the world.
