Nike’s new lace-less kicks are the missing shoe in your sneakerdrobe

Meet the Phantom React Flyknit

By Jess Arrowsmith • 3 months ago • STYLE

If you thought your sneakerdrobe was complete – let us tell you why it’s missing a key staple.

Nike’s Phantom React Flyknit is the latest addition to the Nike React running family and you’re about to be obsessed.

Inspired by the ghost lace system of the Nike PhantomVSN football boot, the Nike Phantom React Flyknit goes lace-less for a minimal, yet ultra high-tech look.

The kicks feature elastic Flyknit yarns by the tongue and along the collar to create a snug fit that moves with you, seamlessly. Structure and stability is maintained with non-elastic yarns, which replace traditional lace hooks … and in short, we can’t get enough!

One less job (adios, shoelaces!). One more pair of must-have kicks. It’s a big tick of approval from us.

To make it even harder to pick, the brand new sneaker comes in both a purple/black hue, as well as a perfectly white shade.
