Nike is giving the original "Blue Glow" colorway of the Flyknit Racer a fresh update for 2017, five years after it first debuted for the London Olympics.

The shoe was tipped to be big among runners, but perhaps not even the Swoosh could've predicted its huge popularity with more fashion-conscious sneakerheads and streetwear kids. "Blue Glow" was one of three colors first released, and now it's back with a slightly revamped design for 2017.

The shoe’s signature Flyknit woven upper features a deeper, more ocean-like shade of blue on the lateral side than before, while the medial side looks brighter and more yellowy. Black laces, tongue and Swoosh finish off the look.

Nike's new "Blue Glow" Flyknit Racer is expected to hit European retailers on February 24, so stay tuned for U.S. release dates.

In other sneaker news, the adidas Tubular Invader just got a camouflage refit.
