Plenty of the Nike Flyknit Racers out there have community-given nicknames, but not many have official ones straight from Nike.

This new pair, which Nikestore released this morning, is the exception. Nike calls it the "Aurora Borealis" Flyknit Racer as a nod to the northern lights. This is far from the first northern lights Nike sneaker – Nike SB in particular has had a number of creations inspired by that natural phenomenon.

The Nike Flyknit Racer "Aurora Borealis" is available now at Nikestore.
