Colourway: Fuchsia Glow/Black/Vapor Green/Polarized Blue
Release date: July 2015
This Flyknit Lunar colourway is exclusive to the Nike womens collection. The fuchsia glow colour is dominant throughout the upper flyknit material of the sneaker and polarized blue flywire runs through and forms the lace eyelets that run either side of the black tongue.
This is the third time that Nike has used the combination of Flyknit material and the Lunarlon sole as seen in the ‘Flyknit Chukka’ original releases. This colourway uses a unique two-tone sole. The upper portion of the sole is a graphite black speckled with the fuchsia glow that is seen on the flyknit upper as previously mentioned.
The underbelly of the sole has a pressure map that indicates the different pressure the wearer's feet come under while moving around.
The Flyknit Lunar sneaker range provides a snug, true to size fit. The Lunarlon heel gives the wearer a large amount of support, which makes the shoes ideal for the gym, or cardio related exercises. This colourway is now scarcely seen online to buy so act fast if you see it for a reasonable price.
Average Deadstock Price: €210-250
Colourway: Dark Grey/Black-Blue Glow-Pink Flash
Release date: 28th June 2013
This colourway is the most sought after flyknit racer ever produced. There was an exclusive release at Nike Stadium Milano on April 12th 2013, followed by 1948 London on April 13th. The sneaker was then given a general release in the summer of 2013 and the hype for these shoes has grown ever since. Sneakerheads that are looking to buy a pair of these racers will now have to pay over double the original retail price for them.
No two pairs of this colourway are the same due to the fact that each side is weaved using a combination of random colours. The black tongue and laces provide a nice contrast to the bright flyknit upper.
The flyknit racer multicolor was such a large success that a slightly different variation of the shoe was released in September 2015 named the multicolor 2.0. To the majority of people, the original colourway will always remain the ‘holy grail’ of racers.

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.
Average Deadstock Price: €220-250

The Nike Flyknit Racer uses Flyknit technology to give the sneaker a lightweight but supportive feel to its wearer. This colourway was released in 2013 and has been popular since it became available to the public.
The sneaker runs with a Dark Obsidian colour on the inner side while the Chlorine Blue wraps around the outer side of the shoe. The shoe is still available to buy from resellers online but at a higher cost than the orginal retail price as seen below.
Average Deadstock Price: €230
