After an initial debut in a simplistic black and white style code, the sought-after Nike Flyknit Racer Superfly HTM is electrified with a supercharged ‘Volt’ design. Taking this year’s premier World Cup boot and transforming it into a sneaker for off the pitch, the Free Mercurial Superfly HTM combines Free and Flyknit tech with a raised, sock-like ankle collar. HTM stands for Hiroshi-Tinker-Mark, a creative group of titans that combines famed designers Hiroshi Fujiwara and Tinker Hatfield with Nike CEO Mark Parker. This latest production from the Swoosh’s ultimate think-tank has already made waves in the sneaker industry, and now will look to build its legacy with a bold new color option. An all-volt threaded upper with an embedded Swoosh features a white leather heel clip that transitions to a speckled white Free 5.0 sole. Black is the only other color included, seen around the elastic ankle collar. Get a first look in comparison with the Mercurial Superfly cleats from Style.com below, and watch for this Quickstrike on July 12th at Nike Roshe Flyknit.
