To follow-up on a sneak peek, new images of this exclusive Nike Flyknit Racer that celebrates the forthcoming 2020 Summer Games is featured.

Still four years away, the hype for the global sporting event that will take place in Tokyo, Japan, has already started. This special edition pair flaunts a unique upper that has been hand-dyed with Japanese indigo — a fabric treatment that dates back centuries in the country. To further symbolize its one-of-a-kind design, the model incorporates the Japanese writing system, Katakana, with the tongue bearing the word, “Nike.”

Simply intended to honor the craftsmanship of Japanese products, this pair is only limited to 100 pairs and unfortunately, will not be offered to the public.

Author’s Take

I’m a sucker for this silhouette and hopefully, it will be released to the general public. It’s still four years away, so maybe it will be available by then.
