It looks like Nike will be releasing a whole new Flyknit Racer for its annual “Be True” collection, which supports the LGBT community. Getting a first look at the colorful pair, this iteration features a black and white colorway, similar to the OG pair, with a rainbow Swoosh and “Be True” logo on the tongues. So far there is no confirmed release date for the “Be True” Flyknit Racer, but Nike usually releases the collection in June, just in time for Pride Month.

Nike’s “Be True” collection has always be seen with controversy, even dealing with a Russian lawmaker seeking a ban on the shoes. The 2015 release of the “Be True” Nike Sock Dart can still be found selling for around $400 USD.
