After teasing the silhouette earlier this week, Nike has officially unveiled its latest trainer: the Train Ultrafast Flyknit. Crafted with insights from none other than Cristiano Ronaldo and built specifically for the emphasis his off-pitch training places on “explosive, quick lateral cutting movements and hours of footwork,” the Train Ultrafast Flyknit echoes what Ronaldo loves about the Mercurial Superfly and couples a dynamic fit upper of brand new chainlink Flyknit with a responsive propulsion plate under the foot. The result is a hybrid that’s one part football boot, one part Free Trainer 5.0. Said design lead Rob Williams of the kicks:

We set out to design the lightest and fastest training shoe… The Nike Train Ultrafast Flyknit’s diamond-shaped Flyknit upper is lightweight, super breathable and linked together in chain-link like system. Nike flywire is woven through the Flyknit cables and functions like a Chinese finger trap toy, delivering a 3D containment system that locks down and engages all the way around the foot. Then, we introduced the Flex Speed plate underfoot, cutting diamond shapes out of the underfoot pbax plate in order to push the cushioning through, resulting in superior responsive propulsion for speed training.

The Train Ultrafast Flyknit will debut June 15 at select retailers and nike.com in a total of six different colorways: Bright Mango/Hyper Jade, Racer Blue/Total Crimson/Blue Glow, Volt/Pink Blast/Deluxe Glow, Black/White, Hyper Jade/Volt and Wolf Grey/Hyper Jade.
