While the Air Jordan shoes definitely have their own rich following, there is no question that independent Nike releases are a class of their own. For this year, the Nike WMNS Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer makes a debut in stores all over the globe, giving Nike fans another excellent choice when browsing through their favourite shoes stores.
Nike Zoom Flight Bonafide
Color: Cargo Khaki/Black-Gum Light Brown
Style Code: 917742-300
Product Design and Style
The name says it all as these kicks follow a flyknit exterior, creating a very breathable look that’s perfect for summer wear. The official colors are string and solar red although it can be tough to imagine exactly what “string” looks like. In truth, the shades used for the Nike WMNS Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer are a combination of brown, grey, black. The body is primarily done in grey with the flyknit weave followed by a brown leather patch along the heel portion of the shoes. The laces are done in basic black which is a good thing. With the basic color, it’s incredibly easy to find a replacement shoelace in case the old one gets lost or gets damaged.
The Swoosh logo can be found along the quarter panel of the shoes done in basic black. This allows the icon to stand out against the grey coloring of the body. The tongue follows the same grey coloring but with the word NIKE stitched onto the center.
The midsole is done in solar red with a solid which outsole. The solar red coloring really helps highlight the grey shade while the white allows for a more neutral approach to the kicks. The flyknit weave helps add some texture onto the overall look of the shoes while at the same time creating vibrant colors.
Pricing and Release
The shoes are set for a July 6 release. The cost is surprisingly cheap compared to others as the Nike WMNS Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer can be had for just $150. Air Jordan models usually sell for around $180 so you can save some money getting this instead of traditional AJ shoes. Of course, if you do not love the silhouette, you can always check out other models to be released by Nike this year.
All in all, the Nike WMNS Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer makes for an excellent addition to anyone’s Nike shoe collection. If you’re hoping to start collecting, this would also be a great start. Either way, the shoes have what it takes to be a crowd favourite as the color combination allows for all kinds of occasion.
