The Nike Flyknit Trainer is a pair of stylish runners crafted out of a medley of lightweight material: Flyknit, Flywire, and foam cushioning. For those unaware, Flywire cables are used to reduce the weight of the shoe, thus creating a lighter shoe overall.

Sources report that the Night Purple iteration was launched on November 1, making it a relatively new colorway.
