A few months ago we got our first look at the Nike Flyknit Racer for Nike’s now annual Be True collection supporting the LGBT community. The colorful iteration features a black and white colorway, similar to the OG pair, with a rainbow Swoosh on the lateral side and a solid pink Swoosh on the medial. A Be True logo on the tongues adds the final touch. The Nike Flyknit Racer “Be True” as well as the entire Be True collection is set for a release on June 1 for $150 USD.
Unfortunately Nike’s Be True collection can bring out the hate in some peoples heart. We have even seen individuals dealing with a Russian lawmaker seeking a ban on the shoes. That being said, I think Nike is taking a great leap forward in building a more inclusive sneaker community. Nous Culture stands behind Nike and supports inclusivity in any form.
