Offering a socklike fit and an upper that moves with the foot in a distance racing shoe, the Nike Flyknit Racer offers moderate cushioning and a semi-soft ride.


Important Shipping Note: U.S. sales only.


With the innovative Flyknit Racer, Nike submits its bid for the best fitting road-racing shoe ever. The upper is constructed from a single knit panel for a seamless and socklike fit that adapts to the shape of the foot through the gait cycle while reducing irritations on the foot. The responsive midsole features a Zoom Air unit in the forefoot for lightweight protection, suitable for distances up to the marathon.

Sizing Note: Men's sizes only. Women should subtract 1 and a half sizes from their women's shoe size. Example: Women's 8.5 equals size 7.0 for this shoe.
