Editor’s Notes: Dubbed as the Flyknit Racer‘s successor, the brand new Nike Mariah Racer is given a first look as it’s expected to make its debut soon.

With its design deriving from the classic 1980’s Nike Air Mariah and the Flyknit Racer itself, hence its name, the silhouette is essentially as sleek as the aforementioned model — revamped with Flyknit, a sock-like knitted collar, and the Racer’s signature tooling. Other enhancements include integrated Flywire cables and a TPU overlay on the heel.
