After arriving at various retailers in Asia at the end of 2017, the Nike Vapor Street Flyknit is finally set to make its retail debut in the U.S.
Both the "Black" and "University Red" pairs that dropped overseas will be hitting select stateside retailers this weekend. The "Black" colorway opts for a blackout aesthetic and grey Swoosh, while the "University Red" pair sports a red Flyknit upper, black Swoosh, and white to red faded midsole.
The standout feature of this silhouette is its oversized lateral Swoosh that extends onto the midsole unit. This branding, as well as the shoe's overall design, liken it to Nike's Zoom VaporFly Elite running model created for its Breaking2 event last year. However, this new model is geared to be more of a lifestyle sneaker than a traditional performance runner and lacks the ZoomX cushioning found in the model on which it's based.
The Nike Vapor Street Flyknit "Black" and "University Red" will each be available at select Nike retailers starting on Friday, Feb. 23.
