Surrounding the close of the recent summer Olympics in Brazil, Nike showed the world that it’s already looking to Tokyo and 2020 by gifting various influencers with a limited edition “Indigo” Flyknit Racer, designed to promote the forthcoming Olympic games. Accordingly, here we showcase a closer look at the shoe, which has had sneakerheads salivating for weeks now.
Limited to 100 pairs, the “Indigo” Flyknits honor Japanese craftsmanship by implementing a hand-dyed effect. The kicks then note Japanese writing on the tongue, which reads “Naiki,” and they are finally accompanied with a card that says: “Tradition turned revolution: Nike starts the journey to Tokyo by honoring Japanese craftsmanship with the hand-dyed Nike Flyknit Racer Indigo.”
Again, this very rare Flyknit Racer will not be coming to retailers, so if you’re desperate for a pair, you may want to stay locked in to eBay.
