Nike Could Be Bringing Back One of Its Most Valuable Flyknit Sneakers

Is Nike planning to bring back the fan-favorite Flyknit Trainer model? Recent images suggest that the discontinued silhouette could be receiving a retro treatment soon.

Ahead of Monday’s Golden State Warriors NBA championship win, Finals MVP Kevin Durant was photographed wearing one of the Flyknit Trainer’s most coveted colorways: white and black. This style debuted in 2012, but the Flyknit Trainer was shelved shortly after, which means it’s unlikely that Durant would have a pair stashed away in such immaculate condition.


But that isn’t the only evidence that hints at a Flyknit Trainer retro. Durant’s Warriors teammate Draymond Green shared a look on Instagram at a celebratory shipment of Nike sneakers, among them two brand-new gold-tinged colorways of the Flyknit Trainer. While Green’s pairs may be end up being exclusives, the fact that Nike is producing new styles of the shoe could very well mean that more looks are on the way.
