One of Nike's most interesting sneakers is set for a grand return next year.

The Mayfly, which was first introduced in 2003 and is most notable for its self-destructing concept, will be making its first appearance in years with this batch of colorways. Included in this range are three makeups that feature the Mayfly's signature "wing pattern" in black, red, and royal, along with two styles that make use of new fabrics.

The Nike Mayfly was originally designed with race runners in mind, with an extremely lightweight 4.6 oz build that actually begins to break down after roughly 100 km. Around the time of its retro run in 2013, the Mayfly was also embraced by stylish dudes, which was later amplified with QS and Tier Zero releases of the Mayfly Woven

This lineup is slated to drop sometime in 2016, although an exact date has yet to be determined. Check out an exclusive look at next year's colorways below.
