UPDATE: Nike has confirmed to Highsnobiety that the Flyknit Trainer would not be re-released and that the launch page on SNKRS late last week was a glitch. This comes as a disappointing surprise to many sneakerheads, who were looking forward to the return of one of the most iconic Flyknit sneakers. Read the original article below.

Brand: Nike

Model: Flyknit Trainer OG

Key Features: The Nike Flyknit Trainer was first released in 2012 and now, eight years later, it's making a comeback in its OG form featuring a fully Flyknit upper with Flywire detailing.

Release Date: May 10

Price: TBC

Buy: Nike

Editor’s Notes: Flyknit was one of the biggest advancements in sneaker technology when it was unveiled by Nike ahead of the 2012 Olympics and one of the first sneakers to don the new technology — the Flyknit Trainer — reached iconic levels among sneakerheads. The original black and white colorway (nicknamed Oreo) was highly popular for years before the runner trend died down.

Now, Nike is bringing back the OG Flyknit Trainer, per an announcement in a since-deleted entry on its SNKRS calendar. Before the reveal was pulled, we were able to grab a release date (May 10), though no pricing information exists at this point.
