Flyknit Trainer: A Runner Made of Style
Ever since it was first released, the Trainer is well-known for some of its awesome colorways. Clean combinations of white, yellow and pink are some of the most iconic.
Nevertheless, the fact is that during the last few months there have been some new and great color combinations released.
Is lifestyle the new running? What we mean is that even if (in the past) the Nike Air Max 1 was originally developed for running, nowadays, we don’t see anyone actually running with them on feet (?). The so-called sneaker world is shifting, day after day.
In fact, Flyknit technology has not been around for that long. Five years only, to be precise (almost turning six). However, it has left an astonishingly big footprint when it comes to footwear.
What we know as “knit” is actually made from recycled plastic. IT revolutionized athletic footwear by striping weight down and by increasing breathability altogether with a seamless upper.
After all, those are ingredients that athletes and modern-day commuters take into consideration.
Nike Flyknit Trainer: the very first Flyknit
In 2012, one of the first models to feature such technology was the Flyknit Trainer (together with the Nike Flyknit Racer). With the London Olympics right around the corner, there was only one possible outcome: success.
From the point where most colorways and variations started to sell out and of course, Mr. Kanye West was spotted wearing the OG version. A lot of hype was then and of course, built around the silhouette.
Plus, collaborations have also been released, such as the HTMs iterations.
Even though it has been re-released not that long ago, including new colorways (beyond the classic white), it got to a point where the silhouette has been produced for the masses, in a good way of course.
Hence, Nike decided to apply its knit to other silhouettes further down the line, for example from Chuck Taylors to on-court basketball shoes such as the Kobe AD, from recent Air Jordan 1 models to the Vapormax, one of Nike‘s latest rewarding bets.
More than a general release:
Back then, as there were not many available pairs and colorways, the Trainer started to grow within the sneaker community. Consequently, resellers started to notice that it would be pretty easy to flip them and earn a quick buck.
Personally, I still remember browsing the web and the first ever Flyknit Trainer to release (and the first Nike Flyknit Racer Multicolor, for all that matters) was sold for crazy amounts of money. If memory does not fail me, around 400€.
Nevertheless, and going back to the Flyknit-material topic, we truly believe that such development may be considered the most environmentally friendly move by Oregon’s finest.
Yet, cutting down product waste by around 60% by micro-engineering every visible and non-visible stitch.
Sales season is right upon us. We just loved to share a thing or two about Flyknit technology and about the incredible silhouette that the Nike Flyknit Trainer really is.
