Nike Officially Introduces Its Air Mariah x Flyknit Racer Mash-Up

The Swoosh takes the wraps off of the Air Zoom Mariah OG Flyknit.

By //Footwear

Introduced back in 1981 before getting a reissue in 1988, the Air Mariah has long been one of Nike‘s most celebrated retro runners thanks to its classic colorway — one that’s perhaps more closely associated, these days, with the Air Max 180 — and holds the distinction (following 1979’s Tailwind) of being the Swoosh’s second-ever shoe to feature the now-ubiquitous Air Sole cushioning. Now, after first surfacing back in March, Nike has officially unveiled the modern day version of the runner: the Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit. Essentially a mashup of the Air Mariah and the beloved Flyknit Racer, the shoe employs the Racer’s Mariah-inspired Zoom-cushioned sole unit and sports an adaptive Flyknit bootie to go along with an external heel counter modeled after that of the original ’80s release.

Debuting in a special OG make-up, the Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit drops June 22 via Nike SNKRS and select retailers worldwide.
