We recently received our first pair of Air Max Thea Flyknit in a clean monochrome iteration, it saw an intricate Flyknit weave of Black & White merging together to create a beautifully crafted monochrome colourway.
The Flyknit upper provides a breathable functionality which is perfect for the warmer weather approaching, the Phylon insert that is located in the forefoot provides lightweight comfort at the front and the PU insert in the iconic Air Max heel unit offer amazing cushioning at the back, the cored-out midsole offers an even lighter feel for that easy daily wear. The Thea are amazing to wear on your feet thanks to its snug socklike feel which hugs your foot providing great profile as well as a natural support.
This release sees two completely different colourways enter the scene for the Women's only silhouette, one being the iconic 'Multi-knit' that makes its way on pretty much all Flyknit models, most famously the Flyknit racer which sold out straight away and has been sought after ever since. It is extremely popular due to its vibrant and unique colour which seems to have all colours of the Rainbow on the upper, matched with unique Metallic Silver accents on the Swoosh bringing a futuristic edge, with contrasting black accents brandishing on the premium leather heel and around the ankle, broken up cleanly with a white midsole to finish off the sneaker. If you want to stand out in the crowd and show your colourful side then these are a definite cop for you, they will be snapping necks wherever you go.
The second release has a lot more of a contemporary style with a seasonally toned Legion Green 'Olive' upper with hints of black weaved into it, with a contrasting white swoosh and the Palm Green leather heel complimenting the sneaker, it is a fresh sneaker and aesthetically pleasing thanks to it's up to date style mixed with the intricate Flyknit structure.
These are two completely contrasting looking sneakers and appeal to both ends of the style spectrum so we are sure they'll be great for you. Which colourway is your favourite? For me, it is undoubtedly the Multi-Knit colourway because of how much I loved it on the other Nike models so it is great to see it make a return on the Thea.
