Back in November 2014, Nike had quite a surprise for sneakerheads when they revealed the Nike Lab initiative they were planning to introduce. The Swoosh celebrated the initiative’s launch with the Free Mercurial Superfly “HTM” that was collectively designed by Hiroshi Fujiwara, Mark Parker and Tinker Hatfield. In November 2015, Nike had unveiled yet another black and white Free Flyknit Mercurial colorway that looked almost exactly like the “HTM” iteration from the year before. It was even accompanied by another blue-based rendition. However, the latest colorway of the Nike Free Flyknit Mercurial is rather clean and simple, and also somewhat fit for the upcoming season.
Spring is officially underway and with the weather only getting warmer with each passing day, brand new all-white footwear can be expected start hitting the shelves in the coming days. The latest Free Flyknit Mercurial colorway is also one of them and it actually one of them. Even back in November 2015, Facebook user tierzer0 had made a post and one of the photos was of a Free Flyknit Mercurial that looked very much like the one featured here. However, it is hard to verify whether it was the same sneaker as this one since there is a slight difference between them.
Much like the Free Flyknit Mercurial from the photo shared last year, the Flyknit uppers of the one seen here are also clean and pure white. Similarly, the midsoles and outsoles also match the uppers, making the sneakers look quite tonal, but are also covered in speckles. The different is that the Free Flyknit Mercurial from November 2015 was truly all-white, i.e. its heel pull tabs were white as well, but in this case the heel pull tabs appear to feature red stripes, which add a touch of vibrant hue.
Whatever the case, it does not change the fact that this sneaker will be a perfect choice to be worn once the weather gets hotter. Moreover, if the rumors turn out to be true, sneakerheads who tend to hunt for all-white sneakers during summer will be able to cop this Nike Free Flyknit Mercurial next month.
