An unexpected hit last summer, Nike Sportswear‘s premium woven edition of the minimalist Mayfly runner returns as the subject of a Summer 2013 Quickstrike release from the Beaverton crew. Originally intended as an inexpensive and lightweight runner meant to last just 100km thanks to its simple ripstop nylon upper and Phylite midsole/outsole combo, this luxurious update to the sneaker gets Nike’s “woven” treatment as a tonal suede upper sports a breathable, woven design that stretches from the heel around the entirety of the upper. Finished with waxed cotton laces and a leather footbed, this summer’s Mayfly Woven QS is due out in Black, Bronze and Midnight Navy colorways at the likes of Korea’s Kasina beginning this Saturday, July 27.
