A Favorite, Rediscovered.
The ’80s racer makes a triumphant return as a lifestyle sneaker in the Nike Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer Men’s Shoe. Foot-hugging Flyknit material and a quick-lace system that lets you throw it on, cinch down and go.

Nike Flyknit technology was inspired by feedback from runners seeking a shoe with the snug (and virtually unnoticed) fit of a sock. Nike embarked on a four-year mission with teams of programmers, engineers and designers to create the technology needed to make the knit upper with static properties for structure and durability. Then the precise placement of support, flexibility and breathability—all in one layer—was refined. The result is a featherweight, formfitting and virtually seamless upper. This unprecedented precision maximizes performance while reducing material waste by an average of 60% compared to traditional cut and sew, saving millions of pounds of material from reaching landfills.
