The Nike Air Mariah Flyknit Racer was developed for the modern you. Catered towards your fast lifestyle and always on-the-go movements, Nike Sportswear dug deep and evolved their Flyknit Racer to keep in time with your pace. Focussing on comfort, flexibility and style, the Nike Air Mariah Flyknit Racer introduces a retrofit of the vintage Mariah roadrunner. Crafted from a single piece of Flyknit, zonal density allows stretch around the collar, support at the heel and breathability on the toe. With brio cable eyelets providing a lock-down fit, the Mariah Flyknit fuses a cursive TPU heel-cage onto the rear for additional support and comfort. The lightweight blown midsole features a unit of Air Zoom in the footbed for everyday cushioning while a heel loop permits easy entry into the Flyknit bootie.

About The Air Mariah: Not long after choosing the Greek goddess of victory as the company name, Nike made the Air Mariah, the debutante at the Moscow marathon trials in 1980. Dressed in an unassuming beige and black nylon mesh upper, it bore close visual resemblance to an Eagle – but inside the Air Mariah gave runners the cushioning of full-length air encapsulated inside the midsole. A serious shoe for serious runners, the Air Mariah had its next major update in 1988, with the oft-referenced Air Mariah PR. A flagship shoe of the newly-formed track-and-field collective 'Nike International', the uppers were updated to a close-fitting nylon and microfiber upper atop a plush two-tone sole unit. It was also one of the first appearances of the textbook Ultramarine colourway for the Swoosh, that adorned the Air Max 180 and is referenced by the Air Mariah Flyknit Racer 'OG'.
