Review:

Hello, hello I know I’ve been gone for a while, but I decided to let you guys miss me for a bit. Plus I was like super busy with work (I’m a registered nurse, just to throw that in there). But, now I’m back and better with another Nike sneaker for no particular reason other than because the Nike brand seem to poppin this month.

So far it seems the Nike Flynit Racer has been one of the top contenders for one of the most comfortable unisex running sneakers of 2017. Probably not on the same level of the Adidas ultra boost but, nearly there. Although this is the “blue lagoon” colour way, earlier last week Nike decided to drop a similar “crew blue” Flynit, following an all white “goddess” colour way all in order to celebrate international women’s day (8th March), which was widely celebrated throughout the world.

Such a vibrant colour,  this Flynit adds excitement to the weather change of spring/summer approaching (okay maybe not in the UK, we got rain for days as you can tell from the environment of the pictures). Defined with a mixture of patterns, this Flynit racer boldly attracts eyes with its blue glow and neon lime sole unit.

Very true to size, there is no need to bother yourself about whether to go into store or order online (because you do what you want when you poppin). I do not think these sneakers were made to be worn with socks as they have holes all over the top, so you can see your feet inside the sneaker. A major benefit about this, is the sneaker enables your feet to breath during intense training, so a build of sweat isn’t trapped inside.


As soon as you put your feet inside the unit, the sneaker gives you a mould to your foot kind of feel, as the sole fits in place to the arch at the bottom of your foot. Also super lightweight you feel like you are running or walking on air, it honestly is such an amazing feeling. I’m not personally a runner, but it makes sense to want a lightweight sneaker, so you don’t feel like anything is lugging you behind.

The only major downside to this sneaker is that the fabric does feel like it could rip easily for some reason. Like I mentioned before I’m not a runner so I haven’t tested them as such but, they do feel like after a while, the fabric will tear (especially if you have sharp toenails).

Now £130 is a hefty price to cash out over one pair of sneakers, but I guess that’s up to you and what you are willing to spend your money on. If you want any advice I’d say insert your debit card and do not think twice.  


And yes, I am sitting on top of a car but, not a random one in case you were wondering.
