Release Date: Early February 2014
The USA Olympic team caused quite a stir when they wore the Flyknit Trainers at the 2012 Summer Olympics. As we near the 2014 Winter Olympics, we expect Nike to debut a new version of the Flyknit, the Nike Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB. Considering the snowy climate of Sochi, Russia, the higher cut Chukka makes a lot more sense than the previous Trainer. A new Flyknit process that blends wool with the upper will help keep athletes warm, and a new outsole inspired by Special Forces Boots will help them battle the colder climate. Expect these sneakers to pop as American athletes wear them to accept their gold medals at the podium.
