Release date: June 22nd, 2013
The Flyknit Chukka was released to the public in 2013. It’s a sneaker that was designed with both performance and comfort in mind. Nike used a Lunarlon midsole that gives the wearer a smooth but light feeling when wearing the shoe.
This is one of my favourite colourways that was released for this sneaker type. It features a dark/light grey flyknit upper combined with a blood red swoosh. The flywire that runs through the flyknit material matches the colour of the swoosh and the red lace locks can be seen below.
The shape of this shoe wraps around the wearers feet and ankles acting almost like a lightweight version of the combat boot. The Chukkas may not be suitable for hiking or any outdoor activities but they are ideal for leisurewear. They are a design that is timeless and the Chukka has become a wardrobe staple for any sneakerhead.
